    I think that Valve intentenally released Steam for Linux just for the Ouya console. If not I wouldn't understand why they would have because there isn't a very big Linux gaming market.. Nvidia Shield I think may also have Steam. Anyone else been thinking the same thing?

    Actually the Ouya doesn't run Linux as most people think of it, it runs Android. Android runs on the Linux kernel, but that doesn't mean it will automatically run native Linux apps. Steam has also announced their Steambox, which will run Linux, which is probably why they've ported the Linux platform over to steam. Even if the Steam environment were compiled for ARM architectures by Valve it doesn't mean that your library of steam games would work on your Tegra device. The games on steam are developed for a, far more powerful, desktop x86/x64 architecture.

    Nvidia Shield is not running Steam, but runs a cloud computing service from Nvidia called Grid. Any android device, including Ouya, will be able to run this service and play PC games, but only through a high speed internet connection. Even then the actual computations are running on Nvidia's servers and not the Tegra device.

    As far as I know a release date hasn't been set yet, but I could be wrong.

    On the Nvidia page Nvidia Grid is I think going to be implemented through cloud gaming providers, I'm not sure if Nvidia is going to do it all by themselves.

    So we have to wait for the cloud gaming providers to start rolling out Nvidia Grid.

    Can't wait.
