Some rumors have been circulating the last few hours, thanks to a declaration that Valve gave the site Penny Arcade: "If we have to sell hardware, certainly do." Now, new information from people linked to the company responsible for the Steam offer tips that may be a new platform being developed to compete with Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
According to the website The Verge, even the hardware prototype has the Steam Box was almost set to be presented at GDC 2012. The console was equipped with Intel Core i7, 8GB of DDR3 RAM and processor chips NVIDIA graphics, and all high-end equipment for the most demanding users.
In 2011, Valve has filed a patent for a new game controller. If the box is actually confirmed Steam is very likely that this is the control. There are also reports that the system will bring biometric mechanisms for various functions (which may include tactile feedback systems). Another novelty is expected related to video content. Steam Box should be a media center, competing directly with specialized devices like Apple TV.
