Valve: Steam console not coming anytime soon
Valve marketing director Doug Lombardi confirmed that the company is experimenting with Steam boxes for a Big Picture Mode user interface, but he added that Valve is a long way from shipping any sort of hardware.
"We're prepping the Steam Big Picture Mode UI and getting ready to ship that, so we're building boxes to test that on," Valve marketing director Doug Lombardi said, referring to a new Steam interface that will make the online gaming service easily useable for people who want to play Steam games on a PC that's connected to their TV. "We're also doing a bunch of different experiments with biometric feedback and stuff like that, which we've talked about a fair amount.
"All of that is stuff that we're working on, but it's a long way from Valve shipping any sort of hardware."
