Microsoft Interactive Entertainment Business president, Don Mattrick claims that Valve’s Steam Box is not a threat to Xbox.

We reported earlier that Valve is readying to supply prototype Steam Box’s to customers in as little as three to four months, so one would think Sony and Microsoft would be bracing themselves for more opposition.

Mattrick simply replied “no” on Microsoft’s TechForum, when asked if Valve’s upcoming console was a threat.

“The scale of products and things that are being brought to market are probably a little bit richer when I look at Sony, Nintendo, Apple, and Google,” said Mattrick, according to reports The Verge [as cited by GIBiz].

Mattrick did however admit that he thinks it is, “wonderful to see what they [Valve] are creating,” and spoke highly of Valve president Gabe Newell.
