    Everyone seems to be expecting a console-like hardware or a streaming device. I think that even though it may end that way, the steps will be - and so far were - cautious and self-contained. For example big picture mode is self-contained, linux support is a self-contained, as is the family sharing. The next step will probably be just a continuation in the same direction. Ultimately they will end up with some HW, the highlights being your own library of games and modability. I can imagine a HDMI dongle that I insert into the TV and have my steam pc stream the games to it. Personally I'd love to have that.

    The text about connecting the dots seems to indicate the kind attitude I describe...

    Best countdown page I've ever seen. Excellent work, Valve. Can't wait to hear more.

    Btw., Valve is in the process of switching to SDL 2.0 on Windows, too, for Input Handling etc. (Team Fortress 2 is the first game), so no more DirectX for that.

    Nah, he was right about Steam for Linux then, now he's right about the steam box too, I mean it makes perfect sense for Valve to do just that.

    Also, please everyone, don't expect too much or prepare to be disappointed.

    - there will be three announcements next week, the first one on monday
    - it most likely will not include a Game announcement
    - it is likely that they're showing the Steam Controller and maybe, maybe a prototype of the SteamBox, but don't expect anything finalized

    Valve is an awesome company and they will get there, but things need time.

    I'm just wondering how they want to involve the community in making the Steambox experience. Which is an awesome idea I think.
    "Soon, we’ll be adding you to our design process, so that you can help us shape the future of Steam."
