I'm not 1005 sold on it being the definitive box, but having looked at the Modular chasis that Xi3 say their Valve partnership is housed inside, it's quite possible that it really could be.

Turns out this is just one of the PC consoles that Valve has partnered with. They are supposedly releasing one themselves too. So essentially, its Steam BOXES. Not just one BOX.

This has me excited. A computer like this will change the landscape. Watch the competitors scramble in fear.
WOW! I never heard of Xi3 till just now but they are amazing!

They can fit a quad core, 4-8gb ram , up 1 YB hhd & run crysis 2 in this? and it's upgradable!

I doubt ps4 and 720 will be that small. It's a nice lil GameCube..

Based on quad core AMD Trinity.

AMD claims another console. 2 out of 4 confirmed so far. Well Sony I expect AMD as well. Microsoft as a maybe? Rumors go both ways for Microsoft so who knows.

So Valve will make an entire console... but not Half-Life 3... Makes total sense (-_-* )

Not really a hard decision when you look at the bigger picture.

1) Should we work full on, on HL3/EP3

2) Should we research a way to stay relevant for the foreseeable future
DeadlyFire  +   589d ago
They want to know exactly how many people want to play Half-Life 3 so they make a console and then put it out exclusively for their console for a set time period to see what happens.

Who's to say they are not working on it?

I'm pretty sure Valve's steambox will be cloud based to ensure not having to release multiple. If valve does cloud on pc, any other companies trying to compete will be DOA.
Actually I'm 80% sure it will be cloud based. Watch.

Your 80% wrong:)

It will note, cloud gaming doesn't need a console, it can work on your phone or tablet.
