Information on Valve’s new project coming soon

leave a comment »

Rumors have been circulating for a  long time about a gaming console to come from gaming’s giant Valve, and now the rumors have been confirmed.

The ‘Steam Box,’ the unofficial title, will be announced at the Consumers Electronic Show in Las Vegas, which runs from January 8 to January 11. The company Xi3 has reported that they have received an investment from Valve and is developing the hardware which will ultimately run the Valve software, most likely a more specialized version of Valve’s already released ‘Big Picture’ mode for Steam.

The console will be housed in a chassis similar to that pictured above, which is about the size of a grapefruit and will be able to fit in the palm of your hand. More information will be revealed with the opening of the Consumers Electronic Show.

leave a comment »

Fresh on the heels of Humble Bundle’s controversial THQ bundle, they’ve released a new bundle that includes 6 games, and a movie.

The movie, redeemable through Steam, as are all the other games, is Indie Game: The Movie, the award winning documentary which explains the independent game market while profiling some of it’s biggest stars.

All other games are, in true Humble Bundle fashion, available for Mac and Linux as well, with games such as Shank 2 and Legends of Grimrock making their debut on those operating systems.

The bundle will be available to purchase for two weeks, and has, in it’s first day, already raised over half a million dollars. Check it out here.

 

New Humble Bundle announced

One of the games included in the bundle.

Today the Humble Bundle for Android 4 was announced, containing 6 games that could be played on your Android phone, Mac, PC, or Linux machine.

Contained in the bundle are a few previous Humble Bundle games, including Crayon Physics Deluxe and Superbrothers: Sword and Sorcery EP.

All together, the items included in the bundle would cost $119 if you were to buy them all separately. However, the Humble Bundle lets you set your own price. If you want the game Machinarium however, you’ll have to pay more than the average, which is at time of post $5.93.

So far, the bundle has sold more than 50,000 units and raised over $300,000.
