What would it be like to have instant access to your full Steam™ games library on your widescreen TV? How would you like to play Half-Life 3 in high-resolution from the comfort of your couch? All of this could be possible with the release of Valve's rumored "Steam Box" gaming console. And you can be sure that when that happens, SteamBox.net will be here to keep you up-to-date.


Valve has recently filed a patent for a new controller design.
Just a coincidence? Some think not, but that's up to you to decide.


Ever since talk of the Steam Box began to circulate, Valve has denied that a console is in the works. But Valve is also notoriously tight-lipped about their product releases, and it wouldn't be the first time they've kept a major project secret. Who do you believe?
