Default Gabe has confirmed a new PC/Console being made by Valve

I guess it was true, and they are releasing it next year.

Next gen just got a lot more interesting. I wonder if they're going to have a major presence at E3 next year.

Also, you know they're going to launch Half-Life 3 with this thing.

Very interesting,They should reveal it at E3 to take some of the spotlight from MS's new Xbox..Which will also pretty much be a PC/Game Console combo!

What I wonder is the price point, they say they are competing against the PS4 and Xbox 3, so they I assume would be comparable in price.

Nah, I plan on getting all 3 (unless one is complete s***). But a Valve console could very well make those two irrelevant. Hell, some elitist PC guys already think that.

I cant see myself not owning the next Xbox or Playstation as i have to play the next versions of Gears of War and Uncharted, however i was planning on getting a PC going into next gen, but im not crazy about the idea of this huge tower taking up space in my room. If this can be an affordable console sized pc, with the ability to upgrade parts and what have you, then Valve already has my money. Really eager to see what Valve has up their sleeve.

I wonder if to get the Hype going/beat the rush they will try to release this earlier?

I wonder how Gary will go about this.

Could you imagine if this thing took off like the Wii and became the next big casual friendly system? That'd be fantastic to watch.

Will Valve and Steam still cater to the PC crowd though? I hope they don't start moving towards a lot of exclusives for the system

Default Re: Gabe has confirmed a new PC/Console being made by Valve

Based on the article it seems they want to make this a gaming PC system But just in a gaming console form,Xbox&PS is going in that hybrid path But this new console seems to possibly be much more a PC in a box.

A gaming console with PC games being compatible would be amazing!

I don't think that this will catch fire as much as some would like to think. I can't see a Valve system catering to the casual gamer nor do I see it catering all that much to non-US gamers. In other words, I think that all this will accomplish is splitting the 360 market between Microsoft and Valve and possibly sinking both in the process.

You know I actually started thinking this same thing today when talking to a friend. At first I was like "Cool!" But when we started talking about it we kinda started thinking it may not work.

Because some are saying that it will be all Steam Based meaning you will not buy actual physical copies of the games. Right there having pure digital download would really alienate the masses, most go to stores to find out about new games, and go up and down the isles to decide. Also 4 consoles may just be too much, I think in this industry three is pushing it, but four just would split certain markets more.

Since it is more open source, and will allow for people to download mods/maps that users made will people like Acitivison and many of the other big companies actually be okay with that? Because it would destroy their DLC sales. Which I am all for, but the big companies may not make games for it then, Acitivsion/EA and many of the others may say no we won't bring our games to it.

Also it is still really just a console, they use the word PC because I think they are trying to get Steam to be the optimum thing for PC users to use. It really is still as Gabe put it more open then current consoles but not near as open as PC's.

This will hit more of MS then it would anyone else, That was MS's ordeal, bring in PC like games to the console world (mainly online) and they succeed with that. Halo was proof that they brought what was mainly just PC to the console market.

The more I think about it, the more I think it could end up really not selling that well. Especially I wonder what the price point will be?

I seriously doubt Valve has delusions about how well this thing will sell. It's aimed squarely at the enthusiast gamer, they know it's not going to do Wii numbers.
