Re: Steam announcing 3 things soon!

So In case anyone missed the announcements, and doesn't know what I'm talking about it was these:

SteamOS
Valve is making an operating system dedicated to gaming. They're looking for better performance than windows, apparently, and it's going to be free to download. It's probably based on Linux.

Steam Machines
Valve is working with manufacturers to make Computers into basically consoles. They will remain open and upgradeable, and come pre-installed with SteamOS.

Steam Controller
Valve is developing a controller that is focused on low-latency and is able to emulate keyboard and mouse input. I think these will probably come with steam machines.

Bringing all of these to market in 2014 will put valve in more direct competition with sony and microsoft. How do you think this will stack up against the XBox One and PS4? Valve doesn't usually get into a game unless they have a pretty good chance to win, it seems.

Re: Steam announcing 3 things soon!

It's certainly a bold and ambitious move on Valve's part.

Also, a new look at Valve's Jira project manager revealed that the teams for HL3 and L4D3 have substantially increased in size. A trademark has also been filed on a "Half Life 3."

This probably means we won't be getting an episode, but a full fledged game. After six years, that would be a nice present.
