This is going to be crazy, so far it has been reported that Valve has already signed up 12 manufacturers to create Steam Machines, holy cow!
Here's me thinking we will have 4 or 5 top and engadget has come out with a list of 12 that have apparently signed up to make them:
QuoteThus far, the only third party we know of that's making a Steam Machine is iBuyPower -- today, that all changes. Alienware, Falcon Northwest, iBuyPower, CyberPowerPC, Origin PC, Gigabyte, Materiel.net, Webhallen, Alternate, Next, Zotac and Scan Computers are among the first companies signed on to support Valve's initiativeSource
All should be revealed shortly as CES
is only a day away where companies usually announce their new kit. Although Valve actually has a press conference at around 5PM PT (1AM GMT for us brits!) so who knows what could be announced today!
If more boxes come out looking like the iBuyPower one I will be happy, we covered that here
for those that missed it.
What are you hoping Valve will announce directly, or do you think it will be a general get excited for Steam Machines kind of thing press talk?
