What games will be available during the beta?
The nearly 3,000 games on Steam. Hundreds already running natively on the SteamOS, with more to come. The rest will work seamlessly via in-home streaming.


sooooooo SteamOS has directx?

"Hundreds already running natively" still refers to their "300+ games running on Linux" from Monday.

At the bottom of the Steam Machines article they mention that they'll be talking about input device soon.

I would be really interested to see if there's a device that can replicate a keyboard/mouse experience on the couch. We'll see.

Well I was able to do everything but play a game in Big Picture mode.  Will have to wait till I get home.  Great stuff!

The new word on Friday's reveal is the Source2 game engine.  It won't have a single line of DirectX code in it, but it will support Windows, Mac, Linux.  And since we're getting a new engine, we need a game to show it off.

Half Life 3 confirmed.

Could just be Left for Dead 3 or something similar.

Most of that post seems believable, especially the intel part :/

... makes me happy. Not because I want a steam box (I don't even have a TV to put it under) but because the flow on effects for linux gaming should be sweet.

It looks like they have first person games in mind with this controller. It's an interesting idea, but makes me wonder how this thing's going to fare with non-FPS games.

Reinventing the mouse and keyboard isn't any better (and yes, it's obvious they're trying to make a controller for FPS games, WE DIDN'T ASK FOR THIS)

They're reinventing the console controller, not keyboard and mouse.

And plus, old, stubborn, bitchy PC gamers aren't who they're appealing to anyway.

Eh, I'm willing to give them a chance.  They want the controller to be able to play every game on steam.  Which implies they are attempting to create a controller that is suited to playing all manner of games, not just FPS games.  We'll see how that turns out I guess.

It's also designed entirely around a 6' male with average+ hand sizes.  Female gamers, young people and folks with small hands are thrilled.

Really, look at the picture of the guy holding it. The grips are monster-sized in HIS hands, it's going to be awkward for anyone smaller than that.

Lets hope they make 10 or so different sized controllers to fit everyone's hand size.

Trackpads? Ugh.

As for the size, you can't tell how big the person holding it is from a picture of just a pair of hands and a controller, I don't see a big reason to worry about that.

Yeah that kinda looks dumb. The main reaction seems to be "THIS ISN'T HALF LIFE 3" however because gamers are retarded.

Games changed, but I gotta tell you something: something similar to this worked for the Intellivision 30 years ago, so I am on board.
