Valve, the company behind every gamer's favorite digital distribution platform, Steam, is set to introduce a slew of new hardware products at GDC 2015 in San Francisco next week. Along with new "living room devices" and Steam Machines, the company is set to debut an as-of-yet unannounced SteamVR hardware offering.
The only information we have so far comes from a press release and a sign-up page for testing the SteamVR developer kit. However, the fact that Valve, which is a huge player in the PC gaming industry, is pushing further into the VR space is definitely interesting. Though details are light for now, we'll bring you more when the SteamVR hardware is officially shown off to the world next week.
Leading Entertainment Platform Surpasses 125 Million
Valve will show a family of new Steam devices at next week's Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco, CA. Products being demonstrated at GDC include Steam Machines with the final Steam Controller, new living room devices, and a previously-unannounced SteamVR hardware system. Developers and publishers interested in experiencing the new SteamVR hardware may request to schedule a GDC demo at http://www.steampowered.com/universe. GDC 2015 will mark the 13th anniversary of Valve's first public announcement of Steam, which has since become the leading platform for PC, Mac, and Linux games and software. In the last year, Steam added new services and features - including In-Home Streaming, Broadcasting, Music, and user created stores - as it grew to over 125 million active accounts worldwide. Steam now offers 4500 games, with 400 million pieces of user-generated content contributed by members of the Steam Community.
