The new Valve Game System
A console shaped aesthetically like a valve can be attached at the rear of the head and inject pure "Steam" into ones head, at low low prices.
Holy shit what happened to Gabe, he looks like whatever age defying potion/device he used stopped working and old age finally caught up with him.
Anyway I'm still waiting for Valve to make their own operating system.
I can see valve's console's name being rain because of the whole steam->cloud->rain thing being a nice tactic for a name.
I hope this is one of those not-shaving-til-ep3-is-done type of deals.
Valve is the best.
As long as they keep their software "unlocked" and allowed to be used on any hardware configuration (ahem Apple), I don't see why not.
Fine. We'll make our own hardware. With blackjack, and hookers. Well forget the blackjack.
Don't give a shit.
We want games, not hardware.
Yeah well I'm gonna go build my own hardware! With blackjack, and hookers!
Man, everybody's talking about the beard, but I find his proposal crazy awesome. He's been talking about wearable computers. About biofeedback. About lack of hardware innovation. Valve has some experience with L4D's dynamic AI manager.
Imagine a game that can change completely depending on what the user feels. The first prototypes might just be like a media player's music visualization; matching colors and music according to the player's heartbeats. More advanced games could dynamically alter levels to build the ideal experience between checkpoints.
Incorporating dynamic elements such as increasing/decreasing the amount of health kits dropped depending on player health is what really sells games as a personal experience. If they could come up with an AI to make good use of the biofeedback, my god, be optimistic and imagine the possibilities for once.
Granted, it would take forever until Valve would come out with a marketable version, but I wouldn't doubt its impact.
Why do people think he is talking about consoles?
I actually had the idea of a standardized computer running steam for gaming purposes (to offset the DAWWW COMPUTERS ARE SO HARD TO CONFIGURE AND TROUBLESHOOT) bullshit about 2 years ago. It would also be able to run games for the next ~2 years on medium with no fuss.
Good thing it's becoming reality
way to kill my dreams gabe.
Gabe is turning into a dwarf.
"They can afford it."
