Steam Box Reveal Next Week? Valve Hints at Hardware Announcement

Share this:

At this year’s LinuxCon, Valve’s Co-Founder Gabe Newell took the stage to discuss multiple aspects of Steam development on Linux.

Newell has been both a vocal supporter of the open Linux platform and a detractor of Windows 8 citing its closed platform as a deterrent for Valve and game developers.

When it came time to discuss how Steam could improve its functionality and presence in the living room, Newell dropped this interesting tidbit:

“Next week we’re going to be rolling out more information about how we get there and what are the hardware opportunities we see for bringing Linux into the living room,” Newell said.
