Last night concluded
second countdown Valve and Steam presenting Machines , “a powerful and new category of hardware for the living room “, of course , from SteamOS.
We want you to choose the hardware that best suits you, so we are working with partners to bring to market in 2014 a variety of machines Steam to play, all working with SteamOS.
In short, Valve intends to deploy its own operating system aimed at content consumption wherever he can : through their own devices, those created by manufacturers, which have different characteristics, or even through your old computer, if not you prefer performance additions and save some money.
As discussed many developing prototypes that will be tested by about 300 users betatesters mode and there until 25 October so that anyone interested can point . How? So:
have more information in the official announcement, tomorrow is another, as is to finish the third and final countdown.
Fabric seafood which is riding Valve. As you get it right, more than one will take to shake … And we see it
It’s no secret that Steam , and therefore Valve , gets along well with Linux . The progress that has been experiencing the popular online store in the direction of Open Source has been clear, and adds no less than 198 titles available.Gabe Newell , co-founder of Valve, has given further proof of the good health that crosses Valve-Linux relationship with his inaugural speech during LinuxCon , saying the following:
‘s funny to come here and say to you that Linux and Open Source is the future of videogames. It’s like going to Rome and teach Catholicism the Pope.
said so much we weigh, hard to believe, because Linux only represents 1% of the video game market, but reveals a very interesting background, the Steam Box .
No doubt Newell’s words lead us to believe that the hardware for Linux-based play they promised would be close to see the light. Unfortunately good old Gabe was not further, but made clear that they will gradually “lifting the veil”:
Next week we will publish more information on how to get there and what opportunities we envision for hardware bring Linux to the living room.
summer arrives and you have to make good use of free time relaxing, hanging out, and why not playing around. The bald pint occasion: Dota 2 is officially available for Linux, and the catalog of Valve receives rebates succulent Steam bid on lasting until July 22 .
The truth is that this story could have ended already, because there is much more to add, but we will comment on a streak of opinion that to me the roll that Dota 2 ‘levelear’ I relentlessly attracts the least. However, I could not resist to me with the first Portal and Half-Life 2, two games that I think really deserve it (later fall Portal 2, of course).
In fact, if you acquire the Valve Complete Pack will have the entire catalog of the company with a 66% discount , which translates to 24.48 euros . Almost all titles are Linux version, and not be late or early.
But also you can buy only the games you please separately with 50% off (there are a couple that offer different). Besides the ones I mentioned (3.49 euro each) have the Counter-Strike (except the last) or Left 4 Dead 2 (6.99 €), among others.Notice that if rebuscáis
slightly Steam for Linux will find other games are also on sale from the regular price as part of this summer deals come to an end on Monday , so that only have the weekend to pensároslo. While Steam offers are constant.
And if you have “or a carnation” to spendest, Team Fortress 2 is an important service and maybe your opinion of Dota 2 is completely opposite of mine , leaving these two free titles as an option to consider.
Development of Steam for Linux has grown considerably in recent months. Last week Valve enabled user registration and yesterday evening released the first beta limited customer . The U.S. company did not specify how many people had access to the software, but said that there were over 60,000 registered.The development version was released with Team Fortress 2, but also appeared a list of two dozen playable titles from Linux. Valve also included support for Big Picture , how to play using a controller and a television. This is what he said Gabe Newell, president of the developer, about the release:
This is a great achievement in the development of PC games. Steam users asked us Playable support for Linux, and today we are happy to bring rich entertainment formats and our user community to this open platform and customer-friendly.
later, was released Steam for Linux supports Ubuntu 12.04 or higher . Valve promised to expand into other distributions, prioritizing the most feedback from the users. Anyway the company’s effort, at least for now, was focused on software from Canonical.If Steam were to try but have not yet received your invitation, do not worry. Access to beta be expanded in the short term and will reach more than 60,000 registered users. Finally we have to tell an important development for community gamers Linux: NVIDIA GeForce launched new R310 drivers, performance improvements and shorter load. To develop drivers U.S. firm was assisted by Valve and other leading companies in the field playable. Track | Valve.
Yesterday began the Ubuntu Developer Summit taking place in Denmark. This meeting is taking many developers try to get news covering throughout the week, but one of the talks most anticipated was that of Drew Bliss , Valve, he would talk about the expected Steam client for Linux.
engineer gave a brief presentation of the client, without visible demo during the talk, noting that currently the client works really well in Ubuntu and that “many developers are interested in distributing their Steam games for Linux. “
distribution has been one of the major contributors to this release, as the strength of the company, the popularity of Ubuntu and the support of the community are remarkable. In addition, Bliss explained in Linux already supported technologies such as OpenGL, PulseAudio, OpenAL and support input methods (mouse, keyboard).
is hoped that with the Source engine games available for Linux, but so far no date estimated concrete the release of the final version of Steam for Linux.
chat surprise was the announcement that everyone attending the UDS that Launchpad account would have guaranteed access to the beta client for Linux, which will definitely available “soon” . As you know, Valve launched a page so that interested parties may request access to the Beta, and theoretically the limit for that was 1000 closed beta users, but we assume that it does not include those attending UDS that already have guaranteed such access .
The truth is that
chat , the streaming could see thanks to the excellent coverage that Canonical is taking place in various formats- was somewhat disappointing : no specific dates, or customer demos running, or a list of games available at launch.
Fortunately in this sense we can confirm that Croteam has announced on its Facebook page that “Serious Sam 3: BFE”, “Team Fortress 2″ and “Portal” series will be available in the first version .
Still, Valve’s presence at this event and Drew Bliss statements do nothing but confirm the bet -rather modest for now, it seems, of Linux as a gaming platform. To expect the best from a pitch that could dramatically boost the use of Linux as a platform of entertainment.

Delivering as promised, Valve User Registration opened for the private beta of Steam for Linux . The gaming platform continues to develop thinking major distributions, thus appealing to the public feedback to test the work done so far.Steam for Linux is still in diapers. This means that, for now, development is focused on a single distro: Ubuntu. To access the private beta software be reckoned with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS or higher. With this release, Valve is aimed primarily at users with good experience in that operating system. Those interested in entering the program must respond pretty basic survey and log into their credentials Steam. While the developers did not specify a number, the jobs available for beta test would be about a thousand. Take this opportunity to expand and improve support Playable in Linux distributions. There are no details about the final availability date Steam for Linux. Gamers have to be patient until next year, at least . As more developments arising keep you informed. If you want to apply to test the new client from Valve can make it through this link. If you do not have Steam account have the option to create it from here. Track | OMG! Ubuntu!
Valve is known internationally for developing video games and creating Steam, the digital distribution platform more popular in the world. But the company has even more ambitious plans. In the list of available jobs the company confirmed its interest to start producing Hardware .The company is looking for an industrial designer to join their team of “world class “to create new entertainment experiences both in software and hardware. According to Valve, its introduction in hardware development is related to the lack of innovation that exists in the market. The company has not yet revealed any specific plans for the creation device, but do not be surprised if we have news in coming months. It has long been said that Americans would create a video game to Steam. However, this possibility was denied as a short-term plan. This is the most interesting piece of the statement released by Valve:
Valve is a software company . Open platforms like PC and Mac are important because they allow us, together with our partners, we have a strong and direct relationship with consumers. However, we are frustrated by the lack of innovation in the area of computer hardware, so I’ll skip it. Even basic input methods, mouse and keyboard, have not changed significantly over the years. There is a real gap in the market, and the opportunities to create compelling user experiences are being overlooked.
What do you think of the new initiative from Valve?
