develop 100 STEAM MACHINES 15


THEY MAY NOT be out yet for general sale, but it’s hard to ignore the potential of the upcoming Steam Machines, particularly when the company behind it is Valve.


The Steam Machines will house their own operating system, the Linux-based SteamOS, while different configurations of the hardware will be built by third-party firms such as Alienware. The Valve-developed


controller is also a unique take on the gamepad, currently featuring touchpads instead of


the standard analogue sticks found on other console pads. Valve’s attack on the living room may have some sceptics,


but it’s high ranking on this list tells you the Steam Machines are highly anticipated by those in the games industry.
