Steam Opens Teaser Site For Probable Hardware Reveal: Challenger for the Console Market Incoming?

Valve just opened a teaser site counting down to a reveal scheduled to happen in about 72 hours from now.

Considering the hints dropped in the past few days and the “living room” wording in the URL, the site definitely seems to hint to the reveal of a Steam-branded console.

Would be good for next year...

Wouldn't this just be the supposed "Steambox" reveal?

JoSneak1171d ago

did you even read? the were practically saying it

CGI-Quality1171d ago (Edited 1171d ago )

Er..."them practically saying it" is the point, and what we've already known. Doesn't take rocket science to notice the controller at the bottom of the page to know this is merely a re-reveal of their supposed home console, but kudos to you for not paying attention and jumping to conclusions.

Maybe they are gunning to compete with ps vita tv

Think it will alot more powerful than that lol.

SniperControl1171d ago (Edited 1171d ago )

This will be a PC platform for both windows & Linux(going over to Linux), not console centric as PS4 or X1.

As i already have a high end gaming rig, i will be passing this by, but for all those new to the PC gaming, rock on!!.

Kinda reminds me of Alienware's X51 range(mini tower PC) but with Valve OS.

Ginesis1171d ago

I was planning on buying a X51 soon. They're not cheap tho but that would be my first PC rig. I've read reviews and they seem pretty simple to set up and get going.

You'll get 2x the computer for the same money if you build it yourself vs buying Alienware. Hell maybe 2.5x since it's Alienware.

It's really not hard. If you've put together a chair before, or any piece of furniture, you can build a PC.

It really is quite easy, and even a 1st timer can do it in 2-3 hours.

Obviously you'll do what you feel is best, just don't buy into the bull that it is somehow difficult to build a pc.

A steambox would be interesting, but from the leaks/rumors from 6 months ago the steambox looked a bit overpriced and underpowered. Like slightly better than a PS4 for hundreds more.

No doubt it will still be a decent product and will play great games, but hopefully for the type of consumer they are trying to reach it'll be more powerful and cheaper then the earlier rumors.

Alienware is way over-priced.

Plus building one yourself will give you the know-how to fix problems down the line.

I made this mistake twice. Build your own. It will save you twice whatever you are going to pay, I promise.

Ginesis1170d ago (Edited 1170d ago )

If I were to build my own PC i want a compact case. Would that be feasible and still be able to have something powerful, cause I want it to fit in my entertainment center? @jmc8888 @aliengrm

Feralkitsune1170d ago (Edited 1170d ago )

Forget alienware, do your own research and save a ton of money, while at the same time building a way better pc. If you need help check out http://reddit.com/r/buildap... tons of helpful people overthere.

I don't know if I want valve doing this or just concentrate on making good games

They're certainly big enough for this to be a possibility, I suppose. And I'm not just talking about gabens mass
