This time they are serious
Valve has confrimed the general availability of its first batch of Steam Machines and hardware accessories.
But lasers, controllers to get wireless in final
HTC has showcased its Re Vive VR glasses that they are bringing to market with Valve, the creator of Half Life and the steam game distribution. We knew that Valve has been working on a VR headset for a while, but we didn’t see them partnering with HTC.
Coming in November
Although the first batch of Steam Machines is expected in November, some manufacturers have already announced their own versions and Valve has now added a full list of Steam Machines, including specifications and prices, over at its Steam site.
Coming in November for $50
Valve has officially revealed the final design of the Steam Controller, which will go on sale in November with a price tag of $49.99.
It will be open sourced
Valve has developed its own Intel Vulkan GPU graphics driver for Linux that they intend to open-source.
It can run AMD too
We still hope that there is a chance that we can see the HTC Vive demo in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress, but we have a slim chance, right next to hell freezing over.
Together with Steam Link
We already knew that Valve would share a few more details regarding its Steam Machines and Steam Controller at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2015, and it appears that these will be available in November, alongside the new Valve streaming device, the Steam Link.
It's called HTC Vive
HTC has just announced the One M9 smartphone, the HTC Grip smartband and a Valve cooperation on a device called Vive - a Virtual Reality headset.
Looking for VR content creators
Steam has announced a new and refined Steam Controller, but it is also bringing a completely new toy in the form of SteamVR.
More prototypes machines at GDC 2015
While have heard a lot about Valve's Steam Machines project we still have not seen an official release, it appears that the company will once again show the latest prototypes during Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2015.
