It was announced back at GDC in March iirc and since then we haven't heard jack squat. I was wondering because as someone who definitely could not build a pc, even if i could afford one, I feel like this could be a good option for me to finally be able to play games via steam.

Valve is pretty bad at keeping the public informed about ongoing projects.

Released next spring bundled with HL3.

I don't recall the SteamBox ever being anything more than a rumor.

I'd rather have a company keep their focus on making quality games vs a company who hypes it forever and makes a pile of crap.

Out of all the Valve games I've ever played I can't think of one I dislike.

I'll take that over knowing every step they make any day.

Bungie and Rockstar both have similar approaches.

Same here. I didn't think they actually made an official announcement about it at all.

I wasn't complaining, just stating a fact.

It's because they have no shareholders to report to, that we get very little information.

Theres no logical reason why they would release it before Source2 engine comes into play / the newest Valve game to show it off and be a system seller.

The day you see the official Steam Box is the day HL3 is confirmed.

People talked about it more than 3 times so they killed it.
