According to Gabe Newell “if that’s what we end up having to do then that’s what we end up having to do.” Newell was referring to the possibility of Valve jumping into the hardware development side of the industry in order to push innovation in their games…

To be honest it will be good, If its a steam console it must be a PC really and they can profit from it big time.

Im guessing we use our normal steam accounts and play games like we do but with something labeled steam on it, I feel like this will bring people back to the PC tbh, and focusing development on the steam console then porting to PC wont actually be a port as it should be a pc anyway.

it would still suffer from the same limitations as other consoles.
consoles are consoles no matter who makes them

and all consoles are PCs

Didn't sound like Newell was talking about a console, but more-so a 'custom designed' PC from a prebuilt Company they would support.

He's likely talking about adding support for various technological advances in PC's to take advantage of the latest hardwares...but lets face it, Valve hasn't even jumped into dx10 yet, let alone dx11. They're one of those companies that will milk dx9 for all its worth just for the fact its dirt cheap to develop on.

And then EA will have to follow suit with their Origin Console..., then Apple will follow and then they will patent "a device to play interactive games when attached a visual rendering device" and sue Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo, Valve and EA.

If Apple did release a console, I'd assume they'd have it run off of Cloud where games get streamed directly to it. Would be odd to see them already have a patent for it and suddenly attack Onlive and other game streaming companies because they were first to have it.

Wow.

Those idiots didn't even read the interview doh.gif

Newell wasn't talking about a console. Valve has been doing psychological studies, brain studies, biometrics, etc for a while now to get more data on how players feel and react when playing games. The interviewer was asking Newell about his re-invigorated interest in wearable computing and about the future of Valve games. Newell talked about some ideas he had and how new hardware would have to be invented. He believes that manufacturers and distributors should be behind this, seeing as how Valve has no experience in this industry, but if they choose not to then Valve will do it if it has no choice. He's talking about additional prototype hardware to be used in conjunction with what we already have, not a new video game system.
