Steam machines are still missing in action, but Valve is pressing ahead with its hardware efforts. Late yesterday, the company announced Steam VR, a "previously-unannounced . . . hardware system." A full reveal is scheduled for the Game Developers Conference early next month.
Steam is bringing the best games and user-generated content to exciting new destinations. At GDC 2015, we’ll be giving demos of the refined Steam Controller, new living room devices, and a previously-unannounced SteamVR hardware system.
With the introduction of SteamVR hardware, Valve is actively seeking VR content creators. Are you a developer or publisher interested in experiencing the new SteamVR hardware? We’ll be giving scheduled VR demos during the week of GDC, March 4th-6th, 2015, at Moscone Center in San Francisco.
Interested parties can apply here to get a demo of the SteamVR devkit at GDC. "Space is limited," Valve says; "schedule your demo today!"
We've been hearing about Valve's VR development efforts for a while now, so I'm curious to see what the company has hatched. Will this be an Oculus-killer, or is Valve is taking the VR concept in a different direction altogether?
