Steam console news

It goes without saying that, in the last years, Steam has been without a doubt the first choice in terms of digital stores for PC gamers.

So, after all these years of domination, the question that arises is: What’s next for Steam?

We can’t know for sure what the future holds, but one of the top people of this company had something to say recently, that shook fans to their cores.

Steam console or Steam games on consoles?

According to a post on Reddit, while attending a panel in New Zealand, the Valve boss, Gabe Newell, managed to capture the attention and imagination of fans with just a few words.

You will have a better idea of that by the end of the year!

Although not clear what this means for us exactly, if we were to make an educated guess, it could be that Steam is preparing to launch a new console, or that Steam games could be coming to consoles.

However, the deadline that Newell provided is in the near future so we won’t be having to keep wondering about the meaning for too long.

For us, any of the choices would represent a winner-winner situation. A new console would be a nice touch brought by Steam but how could it compete with similar devices brought by Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo?

Whatever decision they reach at Steam headquarters, we are sure that fans will go crazy over the idea. All that’s left now is to play the waiting game and hope the results are astonishing.
