Default Valve....3 big announcements.....

The Steam Universe is Expanding in 2014

So Valve just released a new website with a countdown to 3 things. I wonder what they will be.

My guess seeing as there is a cat there will be steam now for cats.

Well I wouldn't be surprised if one of them is their steambox, the second item being 'native' or 'full' support for steam (at least their own games) on Linux, no idea on the third item.

Third item might be game sharing although they already started the beta with that so a lot of people know about it but companies like their "Official Announcements"

Not gonna happen, but wouldn't it be cool if they incorporated a dedicated "wine" crew into their big picture team who would do all of the hard footwork to get windows games to work under their Linux based OS?

Let's hope not, I liked HL2 a lot. Surprisingly, it was even playable on my slowe machine :D And it has very nice textures and stuff... cool!
Dunno, if they can topple that... somewhat...
