Valve working with partners on “Steam Machine” hardware for 2014
The Valve Linux console with SteamOS is official!
Following up on Monday's announcement of a general purpose, Linux-based, living-room-centric SteamOS, Valve announced that it is "working with multiple partners to bring a variety of Steam gaming machines to market during 2014, all of them running SteamOS." In addition, Valve said that it will be providing 300 prototype boxes to beta testers free of charge before the end of the year.While Valve has hinted about its plans for living room gaming hardware many times in the past, this is the first official announcement that the company will be working on hardware in the coming year. It's unclear just how involved Valve will be in the design and marketing of the newly announced Steam machines, though. Valve's role could range anywhere from direct input and manufacturing to merely providing the OS and general guidelines for its use.
