Many questions here...

-Does each Steam game need iOS support to make this possible?
-Each game will be limited to the capabilities of the iOS device they are running on, correct? For example, Grid Autosport on PC will NOT run on iOS at 60 FPS with graphics on high.
-Do you need to be running the games straight from a PC, or can you buy a game through Steam and simply run it on iOS?
