The STEAMBOY Project: E3 2014 Trailer

     As someone who just recently jumped from consoles to PC gaming, I am greatly looking forward to the recently announced SteamBoy Machine.  With the trailer we get only the looks and none of the concrete details.  Valve's 3rd party project has me hooked- I would love to be able to take my Steam library of games on the go, and it looks like I soon will be able to do such.


     From the video we can see it looks like a Steam controller with 8 extra buttons (D-pad and 4 keys) as well as 4 triggers.  With what little we are given, I remain optimistic, despite knowing none of the current hardware specs or cost.

     UPDATE:
     According to [ Escapist Magazine ] the design should include:
  • A quad-core CPU
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 32 GB Built-in Memory
  • 5" (16:9) touchscreen.
     I have a great fondness for my handhelds, the DSs, PS Vita, and even my old GBA is still great for portable gaming, and if SteamBoy pulls this machine off and it works even moderately well, they'll have me on board.
