Does steam for Linux only have valve games? Seems kind of an odd propersition, a console with 6 games.

Not even close: here's the official list of 38 first- and third-party titles currently available on Steam for Linux. Remember that it's currently a beta: with a 2014 release timescale, there's plenty of time for that list to grow significantly before the Steam Box comes out - and there are plenty of games which are both available on Steam and available for Linux but not in that list because, for whatever reason, they're not available on Steam for Linux.

Compare and contrast with the number of games available for the recently-launched Wii U.

Just put an ivy bridge quad, 8 GB ram, a ssd for the os, a 4TB HDD for games and a 7850 in a bitfenix prodigy and you got your own steambox.

seems to me a little like googles approach to developing nexus. A steambox would be an android phone but the nexus model is the one valve put out the door.

It's not even out yet, and it's already a confusing situation for those following the development of it, in the minds of the general public it will be dismissed.

What is Valve's objective here...a successful hardware launch or simply a means to an end, of turning Linux into a viable alternative for the PC gaming community..?

The clear problem here is the thought of Valve having anything to do with a company with '3' in its name. Valve doesn't do 3s.

It was indeed, but that was buried in a forum thread as opposed to a front page news article
