Valve is set to reveal a living room expansion to the Steam universe on Monday thanks to a site teasing the announcement. The page mentions very little other than the expansion occurring in 2014, a blue sphere, a timer underneath one of three circles, an outline of a cat with a controller near it, and a blurb about the future of Steam.
The site reads,
“Last year, we shipped a software feature called Big Picture, a user-interface tailored for televisions and gamepads. This year we’ve been working on even more ways to connect the dots for customers who want Steam in the living-room. Soon, we’ll be adding you to our design process, so that you can help us shape the future of Steam.”
As of the time of this post, the timer has a little over 69 hours remaining. This will be one of three announcements with the first being on Monday, but no mention of when the other two will come.
At LinuxCon, Gabe Newell hinted that more news would be made available next week involving hardware that can bring Linux into the living room. This caused many rumors about the highly desired “Steambox” which has picked up more…steam…since last year when hardware development and beta testing began and when Newell was readying a prototype back in March.
