    Could guess it already, because Valve boss Gabe Newell has Windows 8 for a disaster : The Steam Box does not come with Windows, but with Linux. This confirmed to us Ben Krasnow, a. Valves of hardware developers on demandThis will give the in the open beta located Linux client from Valve's download and community platform Steam a whole new meaning - especially because Linux and the big-picture mode is supported.


    With Big Picture can offered via Steam PC games including matching controller support are made fit for TV, game pads, and playing on the sofa. The range of custom PC games on Steam is growing and already includes not only indie games. This is also a growing range of Linux games, piece by piece, even if Windows and Mac games still make up the bulk of the offer.


    Valve employees and mechanical engineer Krasnov said last Saturday, the 29th December 2012, on the SSIM conference on his personal projects: In his spare time he builds body scanners among others - Golem.de reported on his X-ray experiments with tool smuggling chicken. Before 2011 he helped, along with Jeri Ellsworth to build the hardware department of Valve, he built as an entrepreneur, among other input devices for use in computed tomography.The devices used for their experiments scientists in brain research.

    His experience with input devices, imaging, image analysis and electronic Krasnow should also benefit, because according to him Valve is working on augmented reality and virtual reality projects. It is unclear whether this also with the developers about the VR glasses Oculus is cooperating. Whether the AR and VR projects as early as 2013 to advantage, wrote Krasnow not us.

"build cool stuff, so Krasnow. Already in the summer of 2012 criticized the Valve-guide has a frustrating lack of innovationin the field of computer hardware - in a job advertisement. In which they said also: "... we want to change."

    It is therefore interesting to see if it already 25th at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2013, by the to 29 March 2013 in San Francisco takes place, give the first concrete hardware ideas from Valve, or whether the company will wait until the big U.S. game trade show E3 2013, the 11th of to 13 June 2013 held in Las Vegas.

    Sony Computer Entertainment, Nintendo and Microsoft could use the Steam box so soon get a serious competitor in the PC market - while Ouya attacks from the mobile-side with its eponymous Android games console Ouya

    ...This development-stage computer was shown at the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas. Piston is designed specifically to support Steam and its Big Picture mode for TVs. ButValve's role was described by Xi3 as only an investor in Xi3, nothing more. Were this the fabled Steam Box, wouldn't Valve be shouting about it?...

    • 4GB-8GB of DDR3 RAM
    • 64GB-1TB of internal solid-state SSD storage (with up to 12Gbps throughput speeds)
    • Three display ports providing maximum resolution of 4096x2160 (including one DisplayPort v1.2 and * 2 Mini-DisplayPorts v1.2)
    • Four eSATAp 3.0 ports
    • Four USB 3.0 ports
    • Four USB 2.0 ports
