The big picture: When it comes to gaming consoles, software is often leveraged to sell the hardware. However, it can be used in reverse too. The upcoming Steam Deck is a prime example of Valve using a new hardware platform to attract more games to its real money maker, the Steam Store.
In a Q1 earnings call on Tuesday, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot suggested that Ubisoft might start releasing titles on Steam again if Valve's Steam Deck handheld gaming console gets "big."
"We're happy to see Steam Deck coming to the industry; it shows that it continues a flow of very innovative new hardware coming to the market," Guillemot replied in response to a question about his thoughts on the new device. "So we will look and see how big it becomes, but if it's big, we will be able to put our games on it."
