Not too long ago, we were hearing rumours of a new console coming onto the market, made by Steam. Dubbed the Steam ‘Box’, it got gamers everywhere pretty excited due to the fact that a new console attempting to break into the Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft dominated market. This would encourage new competition and inovation in the market, with the winners being… us!

Although this has been recently denied by Valve themselves, admitting to building the boxes, but for an entirely different purpose. In am interview with Kotaku, they have said:

“We’re prepping the Steam Big Picture Mode UI and getting ready to ship that, so we’re building boxes to test that on,”

This is rather┬ádisappointing to many, but given the widespread success of the concept, I wouldn’t be surprised if we do hear something about the new console rather soon. Stay tuned to The Gaming Aperture for more news, reviews and opinion, and be sure to subscribe, follow and comment.
