Rumour: Valve works on a Console


Rumours have appeared about a console, made by Valve. Nothings clear yet and all is just speculation, but some things are said to be true. For example, the specs of the console have been "revealed", having a Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and an NVIDIA GPU. This seems to be true, because an employee of Valve posted a tweet on the 2nd November last year, with a picture.
"Built this tiny PC. i7 quad core, 8GB ram, Zotac Z-68 mobo w/ onnboard Nvidia mobile gfx. Runs Portal 2 FAST."
Apparently, the so called "Steam Box" will be made, because Valve wants to establish a new standard in a gaming service, pushing other developers, to create new and innovative gaming devices.

I'm kind of excited for this. Valve pushing boundaries again. But still...couldn't I just buy a normal PC then? It's not a real gaming console after all, but rather a PC, made for gaming. I'm looking forward to more news on this.

For more info, visit the sources mentioned above.


  1. Valve will probably win the console wars.

  2. I would sooooooooo buy it, as long as it has bluray and netflix support

  3. I'll believe it when I see it

  4. Yeah. I heard about it. Its gonna be awesome.

  5. I personally prefer to call it the Gabecube.

    And I would buy the shit out of a console made by Valve.

  6. Rofl at Gabecube. Interesting idea, but I don't think this is really the best move for valve, the have a really good business model with steam and it seems they might be dividing their customers with this.

  7. I would definitely buy this!

  8. Normally I would buy anything Valve made, but this seems kind of pointless. It's basically just a regular gaming PC.

    However, if they somehow make it look like a Weighted Companion Cube from Portal, I will still buy it. ;)
