Games Confirming the industry's worst-kept secret, Valve CEO Gabe Newell has confirmed Valve is working on its 'Steam Box', a Steam-powered HTPC geared towards console-like gaming. It'll most likely run Linux. "Well certainly our hardware will be a very controlled environment," he told Kotaku. "If you want more flexibility, you can always buy a more general purpose PC. For people who want a more turnkey solution, that's what some people are really gonna want for their living room." Steam has 50 million subscribers, so there's a market here. As a comparison: Xbox Live has 40 million subscribers.

You don't need $25mil. What you need is not being pretentious. There is a lot of that coming from a lot of indie games these days. Genuine and original - Trine1+2 and Machinarium. And know your limits.

A movie and a book aren't interactive and only provide an outsider's view into the story.
