What could they be?

Dedicated (Linux-based) steam box?
Mini Chromecast box to sling video from PC to TV?
Oculus Rift partnership?
Biofeedback controller?
New Source engine + Half-Life 3?

First announcement is SteamOS. Makes sense that they would want their own Linux distro and that anyone would be able to download it.

Streaming games from other Windows/Mac/Linux boxes so I guess that means no Wine emulation.

Update: 1.5 / 5 (mentioned streaming and controllers, hence the 0.5)
D- must try harder

Second announcement is Steam Machines, their own hardware prototype with more boxes from other companies next year.

All sounds a bit vague. Then again, the prototypes are shipping this year and the beta testers won't be under NDA so it shouldn't be long until we see more info.

So... the final announcement is a new controller:



Two trackpads with haptic feedback and a touchscreen in the middle (which gets mirrored to your main display when you use it.)
It can also register as a keyboard+mouse so you can use it with existing games. They also mention sharing per-game controller configs via Steam Workshop, which sounds like a really good idea.

As with all controllers, it's impossible to know if it is any good until you've actually held it in your hands. I'm definitely interested to see how it compares to a 360 controller.

They also announced a special Hazik-friendly version. Wink

Nice pictures of prototype Steam boxes and controllers. Some of their controller ideas are pretty crazy:

This is all very interesting, I just hope it is not just another step to end PC gaming! Shocked

SteamOS Beta is out.  From the FAQ:

Quote :
Q: What is SteamOS?

SteamOS is a fork (derivative) of Debian GNU/Linux. The first version (SteamOS 1.0) is called 'alchemist' and it is based on the Debian 'wheezy' (stable 7.1) distribution.
The major changes made in SteamOS are:

   Backported eglibc 2.17 from Debian testing
   Added various third-party drivers and updated graphics stack (Intel and AMD graphics support still being worked on)
   Updated kernel tracking the 3.10 longterm branch (currently 3.10.11)
   Custom graphics compositor designed to provide a seamless transition between Steam, its games and the SteamOS system overlay
   Configured to auto-update from the Valve SteamOS repositories

Q: What are the SteamOS Hardware Requirements?

   Intel or AMD 64-bit capable processor
   4GB or more memory
   500GB or larger disk
   NVIDIA graphics card (AMD and Intel graphics support coming soon)
   UEFI boot support
   USB port for installation

Installation instructions are on the FAQ and there's a nice guide at Ars Technica. Unfortunately, the installer doesn't have any partitioning options at the moment, so you have to give it a full disk.  As soon as they enable home streaming I'll probably install it on an old Intel Core 2 Duo machine that's currently running XBMC.

Best of all there is a full Debian distro with Gnome desktop underneath. It boots directly to Steam Big Picture mode by default but if you tick an option labeled "Enable access to the Linux desktop", SteamOS gains an "Exit" button that takes you to the desktop where you can install any other software you want.

Normally this would be very exiting news and I would be willing to try it right away but giving my recent experience with Steam support staff I think I rather have a virus on my PC.  Shocked 

Any ways and little rant a side, I'd still like to know how it fairs on your hardware Malki  Smile
