The lights are on
Valve boss Gabe Newell recently posited that the company would "make hardware if we have to." What's your dream scenario for hardware from the Steam/Half-Life/Portal studio?Would you want Valve to buy a service like Gaikai and make a cheap set-top box that streams the whole Steam catalog over a cloud player service? Maybe a console itself that competes directly with offerings from the big three would be your best-case scenario, or a tablet that plays proper PC games (stupid-looking controller not included).I'll start: If it comes preloaded with Half-Life 3, it could look like a purple lunchbox and I'll be there day one. Day one.Whatever your own personal hopes are, this reader discussion thread is here for you.

I think this a pretty big admission that they are waiting for next generation to finish half-life 3
Hardware? Well, it would be nice to have connectivity between it and my phone. But other than that, just having a PC is fine for me.
"I'll start: If it comes preloaded with Half-Life 3, it could look like a purple lunchbox and I'll be there day one. Day one."
Amen, brother Adam. Amen.
And this is how Glados becomes Glados in the future !
haha but nahh for real i want a console shaped like wheatley
Make a controller that delivers the same precision that a mouse and keyboard delivers, so we can play arena shooters and Strategygames from the couch.
Also, have a voice recognition that works for ingame Dialogue so we can finally talk to NPCs instead of listening to cutscenes or clicking through textboxes.
This are the 2 things I'd like to see solved next gen.
If it comes preloaded with Half-Life 3 and looks like a purple lunchbox, then you've got yourself the world's most valuable Gamecube.
I would buy it regardless, simply for its 1st-party products. What I I would like to see an interface that could support up to 6 controllers/players on the same console.
Why are they worried about hardware when we still want Half-Life 3?
Demand. We still demand HL3.
i agree Adam, a PC that can play Half-Life 3, Cmon Valve pull it out and get it done.
I want Valve to have Sega's software games like new Sonic games on a new Valve system. Maybe Sega might re-release Sonic Adventure 2 on Valves new console, and make Adventure 2 Battle as an add-on.
