I'll give this a try, been waiting to build a steambox, and the streaming option sounds good, if it saves building a complete new powerhouse of a system.
When are the next 2 announcements?

I'm excited by SteamOS actually. In my old apartment my PC was right next to my home theater and I ran a HDMI cable between the two, but the house I live in now my PC is on a completely different floor. If their streaming tech is sound I'll be into this. The kind of games I play on the big screen are all in Steam anyway.

Note: Im not saying this has any legitimacy what so ever - I just found it to be an interesting read regardless. Felt that it could be noted here

I sure as hell hope that's not a legit Staff member of Steam using that kind of language/tone. As far as the rest of it goes... nothing in there that would really surprise me other than the suggestion that there's a PS4 emulator in the works which might be released at some point.

I figured they'd do streaming since Origin already doing it via Twitch, it's built in already. Sounds good, I want one, soon.

Hopefully they'll release the reference specs and open source the OS. Maybe this is why Nvidia is playing nice with the open source driver suddenly?

Edit: And they are teasing controllers, too. This is big. They are taking a run at the console market.

I'm surprised they didn't even touch on the specs. I looked around a bit on Steam and still didn't see anything. Makes you wonder is there will be some Nvidia product in the box. I would be happy to see some Big Green in the Box!
