Gabe Newell Talks About Valve’s Steam Box

By   /   4 years ago


In case you live under a rock and didn’t hear, Valve has been working on a console of their own since Gabe Newell is less than excited by Microsoft’s Windows 8. The good people at The Verge have conducted an in depth with the man and we get to hear some pretty cool things about this ‘Steam Box’ and what it is supposed to do and what direction the company wants to take this.

What we see is you’ve got this sort of struggle going on between closed proprietary systems and open systems. We think that there are pluses and minuses to open systems that could make things a little messier, it’s much more like herding cats, so we try to take the pieces where we’re going to add the best value and then encourage other people to do it.

Gabe also had a lot to say about controls and input systems and what he saw for the future of that. He was of the opinion that the future was in Biometrics and gaze tracking. The interview if fairy lengthy and rambling but still a very good read.
