Valve's Final Announcement

EtherougeEtherouge Candler, NCPosts: 514Member

In about twelve hours Valve will unveil the "O+O" symbol.

Many speculate it will be a new controller or software related (new source engine + games).

What are your final predictions? Almost as exciting as Breaking Bad.

    While I can't share your enthusiasm for that show...

    I'd say this is most likely the controller.

    The scary part is one day the world will be run by adults who were never spanked as kids and got trophies just for participating.

    The show is pretty wonky, huh.

    Anyway, O = software; [O    ] = software in the hardware; O+O = software + software?

    Although it does look like the face of a controller.

    My guess is that it will be a gamepad with a trackball.

    I'm guessing either controller or some sort of easy stream ability for twitch and youtube.

    The second announcement makes mention that the next announcement would be about "Input", so there's a high chance that it will be a controller. Should also be noted that Valve has been known for testing biometrics and how they could use it with controllers, meaning that if we're lucky, we might get a rather interesting announcement.

     

    Valve has also been known to be working on Source Engine 2, so if its not announced today, it will probably be announced around the same time as those AAA titles Valve mentioned, and ...Half-Life 3 SteamOS exclusive...I'm sure of it.

    The "controller" will read your mind.

    I bet it will be a.... SteamBox.

    PC component based console with Steam OS.

    I have a feeling that we should brace for disappointment. Fifteen minutes!

    It's a controller to go with their SteamMachine stuff.

    I would have been happy with Half Life 3. :-)

    The controller is hackable. From the FAQ on the SteamMachine, it's hackable too. Take it apart, run your own software on it, whatever.

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

    That controller is hot. I will sex it.

    Heisenburg and Schrodinger were riding in a car. A cop pulled them over and said to Heisenburg, "Do you know how fast you were going" ?  Heisenburg said, "No, but is can tell you where the car is".  The cop decided to search the car. He opened the trunk and said, " Hey !, do you know you have a dead cat in the trunk ?" Schrodinger said, " I do now".

    Heard that joke a while back and to tell it. :)

    Or maybe Valve's new mascot is Schrodinger from the Hellsing Ultimate OVA series.

    Wait, he's dressed in a Hitlerjugend outfit throughout the series. That would be a bad idea...

    On a serious note, the controller looks neat but I'm skeptical. One thing I like about dual analog sticks is the feedback & resistance they have; I would need to give Valve's incarnation a try before any sort of purchase. The X360 style controller, with the exception of the so-so D-pad, is to me about as good as such a thing can get.
