Valve-endorsed PC: Piston

#1 Post by plasma2002 » Tue Jan 08, 2013 12:39 pm

Google News Search: Valve Piston


Thermite is at CES right now... maybe he can come back with some cool news on this. I dont know about you guys, but if Valve gets behind hardware, to me that seems like nothing but good things to come.

(Spoiler: the console bridge)

Does anybody else think that power button looks pretty stupid, and may possibly even break? haha

The power button, to me, seems like it is a rarely used item. We can already turn on/off consoles using a controller, so I assume the same will be true of the SteamBox.

I look forward to this. I hope a release date is soon.

It better be dirt cheap.

The main thing that this will be different in is that Valve will have an actual computer for their catalog.

In other words, you go to a game page, and you will see "SUPPORTED ON PISTON: Yes".... it gives them another selling point.

It gives them the ability to start marketing a product that can actually compete with consoles.

This can bring the PC gaming market to the non PC gamer.

Know what booth this is at before I just look it up?

Got any questions you want me to ask?

We get started at 9am today. I can break away around 130 to find them and ask some questions.
