Valve to release home console according to Gabe Newell

http://www.afterdawn.com/news/articl...sole_next_year

"Valve boss Gabe Newell has announced this week that the company will be launching a console built for the living room next year.
Newell says the company's main focus now is how to make PCs work better in the living room on the big screen. The first step was releasing their "Big Picture" UI earlier this year.

PC packages that are designed to run on a TV will be launched next year, by Valve and by other manufacturers, with each being able to run Steam flawlessly out of the gate.

Newell says the PCs will compete with the Xbox 8 and the PS4."

All I can think is this:



But if Valve did this, and somehow packaged it with Half Life 3, it would go a long way to selling some Steam consoles.

Re: Valve to release home console according to Gabe Newell

This is something I would be interesting in buying for sure. I can see advantages and disadvantages to making Half Life 3 an exclusive to this only. Since I love Half Life, I would have to first wait and see if it exclusive in which case if I do get another console this would be the way to go for me. If not then it would be a wait and see approach with the others.

This was a rumor, earlier in the year. PC home console.

Sounds a bit pointless to me, I'll just stick with an xbox and occasionally play on my PC.

I don't mind getting one. Just hope it isn't like the PS3 launch where you buy this expensive piece of hardware yet software is limited.

Even with Half Life 3, I don't see it selling that well. Not saying it will fail but it will be easily lost in the shuffle imo with only the top of the hardcore getting it.

Re: Valve to release home console according to Gabe Newell

I guess it depends how upgradeable the system is, always a crutch to PC games. They keep getting optimized for slightly stronger systems, and the system obviously doesn't upgrade. Console games get developed for the same specs across the board.
