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.
