'I think Apple rolls the console guys really easily.' - Gabe Newell

As Valve prepares to enter the war for the living room, Valve's much-respected co-founder says that it's not the console makers that are the Steam Box's real threat: it's the guys making the iPhone.

He sees Apple.

"I think Apple rolls the console guys really easily." More at Polygon.
