Valve to launch console/PC codenamed “Steambox”

Rumors have been circulating that Valve, developers of the Half-Life series as i’m sure you are already aware, are currently developing a gaming platform of their own codenamed “Steambox”.

Now as far fetched as this may seem, it might not be such a bad idea, Alienware has already come out with its X51 console sized PC and with Valve’s access to the library of games available on Steam, the platform could very well be a success.

Why not just use a PC with Steam installed you might ask? Well that is not a bad question, well I personally think that the Steambox, if real, is a shot at taking some of the console community and using them to reinvigorate the ailing PC gaming community. A PC in the shape and size of a console, with console controls running high end PC games and having PC upgradeability? Doesn’t sound half bad to me.

With GDC just around the corner, I guess only time will tell on this one.
