RUMOR: Valve may be working on a console

This one looks really juicy
Quote:
Rumor: Valve May Be Working On A Home Console

rumor

Last month, Gabe Newell, the boss-man over at Valve, was quoted as saying, "if we have to sell hardware we will." That sentiment may be closer to fruition than we all realized.
TheVerge.com has uncovered a number of difficult to verify, but believable rumors that all point to Valve entering the hardware race very soon. Apparently, Valve is working on spec hardware and software that other manufacturers would be able to license that will play PC games and support the Steam distribution system. Valve would be designing the hardware and software, but other companies would be producing it, sort of along the lines of DVD player technology. This would make Valve's hardware an open system much like what Google has been doing with Android phones. There are rumors that Alienware has already begun designing early prototypes.
The system will be open to many assorted controller inputs, but Valve filed a patent last year for a customizable controller with swappable control sticks, so it's likely that something like that would be the controller that would be included with the system.
The system is also rumored to incorporate biometric scanning at feedback, meaning Valve's system could be monitoring things like where the player is looking and what their pulse rate is, and incorporate that data into game design.
If this is all to be believed, which seems like an exciting prospect to me, we could hear something more concrete as early as next week at GDC, or a little bit later at E3.
None of these details have been confirmed by Valve, so file all of this under rumor, but it certainly makes sense. A fourth player in the console war, especially from a company like Valve who likes to open things up as much as possible to any and all interested applicants, could be a great thing. It also makes makes me wonder about Half-Life 3. When Half-Life 2 released, part of the deal of getting to play it was that you had to download Steam. Valve used Half-Life 2 as a way to get people to start using Steam. You know what a great way to get me to invest in a new home console would be? Putting Half-Life 3 on it.

If Valve were to be working on a new console do yo think it would be a success? What are your thoughts?

Just skimmed it, but sold if so! If I have something that can run steam stuff well, and from a company that can still make games today I like, then I'd go for it. As it stands, I have no plans to buy anything from the 8th gen other than the 3ds I already have (would that even be "8th gen"?) because I don't play games today really. Steam offers a lot from today, and from decades ago, and I love it... If I could run half of it that is. I may buy this if it happens, but somehow I doubt it. A new pc may be better, but if there is a console that offers this for console price (150-300 bucks) then it sounds good.

Hmm..not really into the whole "PC Gaming" thing. I've seen some friends play them, and the graphics are pretty impressive, but how would this be affected if the console uses DVD Player Technology? Mine's slow ._.

I enjoy PC gaming quite a bit, not the newer stuff still. I suppose that's why I lean more towards pc gaming, now than before. There's always a simple way to get/buy pc games downloadable from just about any day and age onto your computer today. Where as console gaming, good luck finding anything for N64, Snes, Genesis, you name it without ebay or endlessly exploring pawn shops.
