If you’re a gamer, then you’ve heard of the steambox. This is Valve’s answer to the xbox, ouya, etc.. offering gaming in your living room.
They’ll be announcing something today at 10am Pacific time on their announcement page here: http://store.steampowered.com/livingroom/.
Text on the page is:
Last year, we shipped a software feature called Big Picture, a user-interface tailored for televisions and gamepads.
This year we’ve been working on even more ways to connect the dots for customers who want Steam in the living-room.
Soon, we’ll be adding you to our design process, so that you can help us shape the future of Steam.
Supposedly, this will be console type system running Linux. I’m hopeful that this will help to propel Linux more into the limelight!
