  3. The third steam announcement. Hopes and predictions?

Well, with SteamOS and Steam Machine announced. There is still one more big news.
What could it be? Game sharing? Steam Phone? HALF LIFE 3 CONFIRMEDZ?!


Myself? I really think this is a great, GREAT opportunity to announce Half Life 3. If not, Source engine 2.

Game sharing was already announced. Steam already has a mobile and app version, and a fully-fledged Steam phone sounds kind of dumb. Game announcements wouldn't really make sense because this whole thing is about bringing Steam to the living room. Also, many people would be pissed just at the thought of grouping Valve games/game engines and "Steam in the living room" together. I think Valve knows that, so that's another reason why I don't think it will be about a game or game engine.

I'm stumped for what it could be, though. Someone mentioned a controller earlier, but that would make for a pretty weak final announcement. The controller theory was drawn from the Steam Machines announcement, so making one announcement about something that already played a minor part in a previous announcement would be a bad idea.

It could be like a community overhaul or something. Both the Xbone and PS4 highlighted socializing and streaming as part of their new features.

Probably an incentive thing for trying out the SteamOS like a TF2 hat.

My face when they announce Source Engine 2, HL3, TF3, Portal 3, and L4D3 all in one go.

Controller. Why would they make their own OS, to run on their own system, and then use a 360 controller? And it'll be something with build in mouse emulation/programmable buttons for any keyboard mapping so that it universally works (to a degree based on the game obviously)

It's either gonna be a controller (I predict something using that haptic feedback stuff and/or a variant on the usual keyboard+mouse) or something software related.

Source 2 engine or new controller

Either some really quirky controller of a bunch of Source 2 stuff.

Source 2 with half life 3 exclusively on steam os
And if you hear as the warm night falls. The silver sound from a time so strange. Sing to me, sing to me.
