Valve to beta test prototype Steam Machine
Valve has announced the second step in their plan to conquer the living room – Steam Machines.
Put simply, Steam Machines are the Steam Boxes we've been hearing rumours about for nearly a year now. There will be several different machines from different manufacturers all powered by the new SteamOS and set to launch in 2014.
As a precursor Valve will be holding a beta test of their own prototype Steam Machine very soon. 300 lucky Steam community members will be chose from a pool of those eligible to receive the new prototype Steam Machine to test.
In order to be eligible for this special beta you must be a member of Steam and have completed a list of tasks to earn a special badge before the 25th of October. Full details are available over on the Steam website. Valve have one more announcement which seems to be due on Friday by the countdown timer.
