Valve’s Steambox – Sooner Than We Think?

Valve and their slow, secretive process towards creating a TV box has been a big focus of the gaming community. Gabe Newell declared Windows 8 a “catastrophe” and proceeded to initiate work on Steam for Linux, which is now in beta. Now, Valve engineer Ben Krasnow has said that the box will indeed run Linux, and they plan to show off more about it this year, possibly at GDC or E3, and release it later this year. Given Valve’s penchant for delays, I won’t hold my breath for a 2013 launch, but hearing all about this does get me excited.

Krasnow also mentioned that Valve is working on virtual reality and augmented reality hardware projects that they’ll be showing off in 2013. What kind of hardware are they cooking up in there? I hope the wait won’t be long.
