Steam Box (console) confirmed by Valve Engineer
    #17510476 - 01/07/13 04:38 AM (9 years, 12 days ago)

It looks like the Steambox that has been widely reported by many sites is in fact a real thing.

This time we have an official confirmation by a Valve engineer, Ben Krasnow, who talked about a Linux-based Valve console scheduled for 2013. German site Golem.de attended a special event, and it seems a bunch of other products are planned by Valve as well.

“The Hardware Lab also has a few secret projects that will be published in 2013. We have a good group of electronic and mechanical engineers, and we look forward to “build some cool stuff.” Krasnov said. (Rough German translation)

It is being said that this console will be announced by them sometime this year, but there’s no specific timing given for it. It’s not clear whether they will hold a separate conference or announce it at E3.

The console will run Linux, and based on the recent comments by Gabe Newell on how Windows 8 is something of a “catastrophe” and they don’t want to be dependent on it, this is not surprising at all. Valve engineer Krasnow has been working on the hardware with Jeri Ellsworth since 2011, the German site reports.

The Game Developers Conference will be held between March 25-29 this year. That is one of the best events to announce the console as well.





This seems pretty exciting! it would be so nice to have a fourth contender in the console market, and better yet, one that will even run linux.

I do wonder what kinds of games they will be running, and what new technologies they will be bringing to the table.

Would any of you shroomerites be interested in this as well? I contend that a true gamer, games across all platforms, and this would be a fantastic edition to anyone's collection.

Wonder how well it would actually hold up in the market though?

You see the Nvidia Shield was announced at CES?  Has been a pretty wild day in gaming...

I got sick of controllers, so I stick to PC games, but the concept is interesting. If the games you have on steam can be loaded to the console (which the name implies you can), like you can load onto multiple PCs, I'd be tempted to get one just so I could play my games with my friends who don't like PC.

That nvidia device seems like a really cool concept, but more of a niche thing. I can imagine that coming with a hefty price tag.

Wait, what?  Basically your computer is doing the heavy lifting running the video game and then it's just streaming the video and audio to the tablet/controller.  It's basically doing the same thing apple does with airplay mirroring or even better yet the Wii U, in the way that you can stop using the Wii U with your television and resume playing on the tablet/controller deal. 

You might be able to dual box the game, which is running two instances of the game on one pc...  one to be streamed to the nvidia shield and another to play for yourself, but that's going to be very taxing on your computer and probably kick the shit out of the FPS on any reasonably demanding game... I used to dual box all the time when I played WoW though, it wasn't a very demanding game :shrug:

Its says streaming over wifi.  Curious if that means on the same wifi network or say...be at work and connect to your computer at home and stream your game.

Same network, and you're really going to want to have a good dual band wireless n router too....  The problem is you likely wouldn't even begin to have the kind of upload bandwith to stream your game over the internet.  I'm guessing you'd need like 100mbps up :shrug:

Well my first paragraph was about the steam box, which I got the impression was a standalone thing. The second part about the nvidia Shield was unrelated and kind of an afterthought. I was saying I wonder if since I own say CS:GO on Steam, I could get it on the Steam Box without paying anything extra. Hopefully that makes more sense.

The way the Wii U worked when I was playing on it (I believe the game is called zombie u) was quite different than taking over for the console, it was an added screen that did different stuff. I'm still not sold on that particular concept yet. I kept forgetting to do stuff with it. lol

Oh, I got ya, the Nvidia deal seemed to have Steam integration so it threw me off.  Umm, I certainly would hope so.  I know as a fact that all Steam purchases are multi platform as it currently stands.  So say I buy The Witcher 2, which has both mac and pc clients, I can log in on my Windows gaming rig and download and play the game - but I can also log in on my macbook pro in OS X and download and play the game on it without repurchasing it.  Would hope the same would hold true for their console.

=that nvidia shield is a bit like the idea I had for game manufacturers to put up android apps for inventory management.

I play planetside 2 and I would LOVE a map android app, especially if I could login with my username so I could see where I was and where the squad/platoon/personal markers are in relation to the roads.

Yup, except it wasn't really your idea...  Tablets/phones have already been being used as gaming peripherals...

There gonna need some luck and some good games to have some success just look at how hard it was for Microsoft to break into the market and that's cause they had billions to spend. Even Nintendo is fading away in the main console market not the portable market of course though. Wish them all the best valve is an awesome company filled with great people.

I don't really think calling it a console is fair. It's an OEM computer for gaming by Valve. A "console" carries the negative connotation that you are restricted in what software you can run on it by a proprietary operating system.

It runs Linux because that's how you sell OEM computers while flipping Microsoft the bird. Most of them will end up with Win7. Also because that's a thing they've been specifically working towards. I had a vague idea this might be happening the moment they announced Steam support for Linux. I thought "why? Linux users don't pay for software! Why cater when you're the largest game distribution, publishing, and development company out there already?" Aside from because you can and should- because it's good for business if you want to sell hardware and don't want to write your own OS from the ground up.

No, they just need let more money print out. I don't think you grasp the level of financial success Valve has achieved.

I mean look at big picture mode for Steam. It blows anything like it out of the water totally in terms of feature richness/functionality/not being a big billboard.

It pretty much compares to  xbox live and stuff I would say its better but that's just cause I'm biased towards pc. Also I guess i read wrong as its not really a independent new console

What boggles me is how the "steam box" is running Linux, but all the games are made for windows. Could Linux become the new gaming platform? Especially when considering how Microsoft has built Windows 8 around a closed market when the video game industry thrives on an open one. Microsoft might alienate themselves from the gaming industry kind of like how Apple is.

Valve has been moving towards Linux for a while now. Steam is now on Ubuntu, and with Big Picture mode, it's obvious they have been working on this for a while.

If Microsoft wants to shoot themselves in the foot by separating themselves from the gaming industry, they're more than welcome to IMO. That's a big market that Windows will be shutting off. Honestly, I hope Linux becomes the standard for the PC gaming world, the only reason I have Windows is for games. All the driver issues and compatibility problems I've ever had with hardware in Windows were never an issue running Ubuntu. I like where this is going.

Also, making computer chips smaller actually makes them faster! Nvida's newest 600 series and AMD's 7000 series graphics cards have gone from a 40nm to a 28nm manufacturing process; giving their new series large performance boosts. Intel's newest processors are smaller than before also.

might be interesting if i can plug my mouse and keyboard in and play with a friend using a controller at the same time. granted i will dominate him, but my lack of acceptance of controllers in most games now keeps me separated from my friends in the gaming world.

It has quite a few USB ports so yes you could do that.


On another note, me and my friends have predicted that Valve will launch Half-Life 3 with the Pistin which will also debut the Source Engine 2.
There are epic times ahead in the future of gaming! :awejeez:

Difference being, the PS3 is a propietary system developed by sony, locked down to use in the way they see fit. This steam console, whilst possible to also be made locked down, is based on PC architecture. With any luck that'll make all the difference.
