The founder of Valve, Gabe Newell, spoke about Steam Box during LinuxCon 2013, where he said that there will more information about the hardware on the living room gaming system powered by Linux by next week. Yes, its THAT close!
He also added that there have been certain implementations done in the controller as well.
Newell did point out that are certain issues that they had to deal with, such as thermal, sound and even input issues, but working with hardware partners, they were able to make a blueprint for Steam Box that others can use to manufacture a living room friendly gaming system.
All eyes are on next week, and hopefully this will be freaking brilliant!!!
