Xi3 Responds To Valve: Piston Is "Something More" Than Valve's Steam Box
Posted on Wednesday, March 13 @ 09:30:33 PST by Alex_Osborn
Just yesterday, Valve distanced itself from Xi3, claiming that the company has "no involvement" with the Piston. Xi3 didn't take to kindly to those comments and has since replied in a rather combative manner.
Jason A. Sullivan, Xi3's founder, president, and CEO, released a statement, making it perfectly clear that the device they created was designed"specifically for Valve" earlier this year at CES. He then went on the offensive, explaining why the Piston will be superior to whatever Valve releases.
We reaffirm the fact that we received an investment from Valve Corporation (as we previously disclosed during the 2013 International CES trade show), and we did so with Valve's written permission. Second, we were asked to build a product specifically for Valve, and both companies showcased this product - the Piston console - in their respective booths at CES 2013.The gauntlet has been thrown. Let the Steam wars begin!
