*Updated* Valve Finally Gives Us Pictures of Steam Machine Prototype
by Corey Kirk
*UPDATE* Valve has just released new pictures on its official Steam Community Page. Here are some of the pics! Click here to view!
A lot of us here at GameSkinny were excited to hear about the new Steam Machine, and SteamOS, when Valve announced the new products a few months ago. We then headed to the official Steam Community page to make sure we had satisfied the requirements to be among the eligible participants, for our chance to be one of the 300 people who will receive a prototype Steam Machine later this year. Our excitement since then has been high, but there has always been something missing…
We wanted pictures of the prototype!
Up until this point, we didn’t even know what the Steam Machine prototype would look like if we were lucky enough to get one. Fear not, fellow hopefuls, for pictures have finally arrived! In a recent profile article in the Seattle Times, Valve devs showed off their shiny new PC that they hope will take over the spot in the living room that consoles currently occupy. Valve designer Greg Coomer says,
“We are going to build the entertainment PC for the living room and build something that lives under the TV.”
Hannes Seifert, the head of IO Interactive agrees, and thinks that Valve may be able to pull it off,
“Bringing traditional PC gaming to the couch shows incredible ambition, but if anyone can pull off something like this, it’s probably Valve.”
Here are the pictures in all of their awesome glory!
The new machines are expected to be shipped to the chosen (lucky) beta participants within the next two months, with retail versions being released in 2014.
