Gabe Newell has gamers across the world, including myself and now probably you, excited to a degree we haven't felt in quite a while. While speaking at LinuxCon, the gaming God himself said "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."
Yes, this would mean Steam Box. We know that Valve has been working on Steam for Linux for quite sometime, but meshing both the living room and Linux together can only mean one thing: Steam Box. This is going to be quite the step for Valve, and I'm hoping that with this announcement, we hear about Half-Life 3, which would really be raining on the next-gen consoles' parade.
I wrote a piece a while back, asking if the rumored Steam Box could "change gaming as we know it" and I still think it can. What are your thoughts on the upcoming 'console' from Valve? Could we see Half-Life 3 debut at the same time the Steam Box is unleashed? Imagine that.
