Gabe Newell’s DICE 2013 keynote hints at Valve’s future plans

When Gabe Newell sits down to talk about something, you can pretty much guarantee that it will be both interesting and insightful. This was the case with the keynote talk he did today for the D.I.C.E. 2013 event in Last Vegas. The Valve boss touched upon a number of topics such as the company’s upcoming Steam box, the problems with cloud gaming, and the company’s historical models on how to design single and multiplayer games.

I think we can assume he means because of his weight, but I am just assuming.

i think he means ppl of that caliber tends to do more than sit and talk about things, they try to sell their fish with a flashy presentation, where gabe just seated and talked.

very cool from his part i might add, cuz he feels more level-headed than the rest this way.

That this individual is so intelligent for his field, but is doing himself great disservice & health. Yes most of you will counter that he's happy or was tired, but no matter how you look at it he hurting himself.

Steambox = The future is now and Console are DEAD!
Next Gen is the consoles LAST GEN!

Sony/MS will just be Publishers and no longer make Game Hardware as it will be easier and more profitable to just publish games on PSN or Xboxlive and just get them out to what ever device consumers are using.

6 months after the Next Gen consoles get released, Tablets/slates will be more powerful than the PS4/X720 so spending a Billion on R&D along side Hardware Manufacturing will no longer be viable for Consoles after this gen.

The Tablet Hybrid Desktop PC is taking over (See Sony Vaio Tap 20) and PC gamers will still have their upgradable boxes.

Gabe Newell is starting to look like Santa Clause! Gabe must be getting into character to deliver us Gamers the best present we could ever ask for, The Next Half Life Game.

ehh i don't see it. ima stick with sony's console for the exclusives. but i will eventually buy a new pc to play strategy stuff like dota 2 if my current backlog ever runs dry.

if they went with their middle option they would have to have relatively equal game offerings. for example with GTA V only launching for consoles in 2013. their "console" would have to make this list for me to consider it as an alternate console. and then they'd also have to sprinkle in a few exclusives of their own and have their own awesome 1st party controller design that brings something to the table.

the more competition the better, but i can't see this selling more than a sony or ms console unless they're going to fund studios for a ton of exclusives.

Valve is not releasing a console. They are working on ways to bring the PC to the living room.

Consoles are closed systems and mostly proprietary hardware. (nothing off-the-shelf in a console.) Pretty much the EXACT opposite of what Gabe was talking about.

"Steam-box" is a PC with a console form factor, that's all. And this is just one way they want do it. The other being in home streaming.

Steam-box = PC. PC has exclusives. Steam-box has exclusives. Clear?
