Valve’s Steam Machines Will Officially Launch In November

The idea of the Steam Machine has always been a bit unclear, but essentially, Valve is teaming up with hardware manufacturers to release a variety of different living-room gaming PCs that will be available at various price points with a variety of specs and if you take Valve at their word, it’ll be more powerful than the PS4 and Xbox One.

HTC’s chairwoman has said she “hopes” a Half-life video game will be one of the titles released for her company’s virtual-reality headset.

Half-life is perhaps Valve’s most famous and best-loved franchise.

The HTC Vive will be paired with wireless controllers and tracking technology to let wearers explore computer-generated environments by walking round their rooms.

The machines let wearers view computer-generated 3D environments to give them a sense of being there.

A test version of the kit will go on sale to developers shortly, followed by a public edition later this year.

It will compete with Facebook’s Oculus Rift and Sony’s Morpheus VR headsets.

The Vive headset was developed in conjunction with Valve, creators of such ground-breaking games as Portal and Half-Life. HTC manufactures some of the finest consumer electronics on the planet and Valve is an unrivaled architect of virtual worlds, so you know the collaboration is something special. Vive is powered by Valve’s SteamVR so plenty of games that take advantage of its capabilities will soon be available on the Steam service.
