Valve dropped a bomb on the gaming industry this past Monday when they announced their first proprietary operating system, the SteamOS. With it, Valve has made several promises regarding optimizations for the gamer on the big screen and visions of the best possible gaming experience.
This afternoon, Valve continued the bombardment with the announcement of the Steam Machine lineup! The first hardware piece from Valve, the Steam Machine lineup is not a one size fit all machine, but rather multiple hardware options that fit the consumers needs:
A multiple choice answer
Entertainment is not a one-size-fits-all world. We want you to be able to choose the hardware that makes sense for you, so we are working with multiple partners to bring a variety of Steam gaming machines to market during 2014, all of them running SteamOS.
Very little is known as Valve is extremely vague at this point, but with the beta program opening up and another announcement coming this Friday, I'm sure we will hear all about it soon.
