Valve really is serious about competing with the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 after all. The Seattle Times went to Valve’s offices in Bellevue, Wash. and got to take a look at some early prototypes of Valve’s Steam Machine consoles that will run on its free-to-use SteamOS gaming platform. From the picture that The Seattle Times published, the prototype Steam Machine looks a lot like an Xbox One: A large black box that will hook into your television and act as your main gaming interface. Valve representatives tell the Times that they’re “trying to advance the stagnant PC hardware platform and provide an open platform on which other companies can innovate.” Pictures of prototype Steam Machine consoles follow below.
