While this info doesn’t bring to much novelty as Valve has been promoting its Steam Machines for a long time now – the discharge particularly announced that the last model of the Steam Controller, and a new VR project named “Steam VR” would be introduced to the public at GDC.
The Steam Controller’s various postponements and upgrades are basically the cause behind Valve’s Steam Machines not being discharged yet. Some Steam Machine business partners like Alienware, discharged Windows-based models, but so far the “genuine” Steam Machine has been kept away from the public’s eye. Since Valve seems now prepared to present its “last” form of the controller implies that mass Steam Machine rollout is around the corner.
While Valve provided no other insight on its other important report, the Steam VR venture, it positively sounds like it is going to be Valve’s own design answer to the Oculus Rift. But thinking about how most of Valve’s different items have worked with its Steam platform- where the greater part of PC games are played – one can presumably say that the Steam VR will show a good compatibility feature, and may even top its rivals.
Valve noted in its press release:
“GDC 2015 will mark the 13th anniversary of Valve’s first public announcement of Steam, which has since become the leading platform for PC, Mac, and Linux games and software.”
The organization included that it was “effectively looking for” virtual reality content designers.
With Valve going into the developing industry of virtual reality, the Game Developers Conference ought to be a main place for the organization to spot interested developers to design games for the new framework.
A Boston VR Jam organized a year ago gave a chosen few individuals the chance to test how the headset was functioning and the reaction had been reaffirming.
Virtual reality will probably dominate the GDC 2015. SteamVR will be in immediate rivalry to Facebook’s Oculus Rift, and Sony’s Project Morpheus.
It wouldn’t be unlikely that Valve gets most of the attention at the convention. Sony and Oculus are as yet working on their VR devices, with both companies being far from having an item prepared for the mass consumers. It’s hazy exactly how close Valve is either, but it is certain that Virtual Reality rivalry is warming up.
