Couple weeks back I wrote this, which said I really hoped Valve would sort out the whole PC hardware problem. Then what do I see today, but this and this, which are rumours (rumours, mind!) that they are all set to do just that. We could be hearing more this week at the Game Developers’ Conference (GDC) in San Francisco, or later this year at the Electronic Entertainment Expo. I believe that this would represent a significant disruption to the video games market and potentially the market for home entertainment devices and home computers in general. It’s really high time another company started doing something serious in this space: the more competition for Apple, Microsoft and Google the better.
