What Steambox(s) could mean for PC and consoles

   0
The Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas has been big news for technology this week, the largest electronic show in the world is an ideal place for manufacturers and independent tinkerers to show off their newest gadgets. Unfortunately gaming tends to take a back seat at this one with most major news in the form of the newest must have phone of tablet, but for most PC fans attention was focused on one man, Gabe Newell (Spoilers: Still no Half-Life 3 announcement).

Rumours have been circling around about a Steambox for some time but CES is where we actually saw not one, but many prototypes of what the hardware could eventually be. Through this a clear business model also emerged with Valve providing funding to external hardware companies to develop many versions of a small form factor PC.



With a wider PC adoption and amazing software distribution Valve could be a danger to the already well established console companies with future plans but how will this change the existing PC market, only time will tell as new news surfaces.
