Liveblog: Valve's CES 2014 Steam Machine Press Conference

Valve doesn’t make it a habit to visit the annual Consumer Electronics Show. This year is markedly different as the developer-turned-digital distribution leader-turned-hardware maker prepares to send us deeper into their world of Steam Machines and SteamOS. They’ve already tipped their 12 handpicked partners , so I’m expecting crucial details like release dates, pricing, and in-depth looks at the hardware and, of course, the operating system.

I’ll be there at 5pm PST/8pm EST covering the press event live from the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas, so stick around or journey back for all the news.

5:05pm: The briefing is surprisingly short as Gabe pulls back the curtain on the 12 partner machines which will don the Steam Machine branding. Newell explains that he wants us to speak to the hardware makers, ask questions directly, and experience the hardware up close. That’s exactly what I’ll be doing. Keep it locked on this page for frequent updates throughout the night.

5:03pm: A press member asks a question about Microsoft’s Xbox One milestone of 3 million sold, wondering if Valve can reach that goal of Steam Machines sold by the end of 2014. Newell’s response “actually it’s gonna take them a long time to catch up: we already have about 65 million users.”

5:02pm: “Today we’re taking the next step. All of these partner developers are here and are interested in talking to you about your PC moving into the living room.”

5:01pm: Newell: “The PC platform is successful because we all benefit from each other’s accomplishments.” He’s starting to discuss form factor issues, explaining that Valve wanted to follow the lead of certain partners (like Falcon Northwest for example), and shrink that form factor down.

5:00pm: Gabe Newell takes the stage. He opens with an awesome statistic: “DotA 2 is bigger then Monday Night Football.”

4:56pm: The atmosphere her is very relaxed. Couches and demo stations with the Steam Controller and, presumably, partner Steam Machines which are currently hidden.

4:51pm: We are live on the 55th floor of the Palm Resort in Las Vegas at the Ghostbar, the site of Valve’s CES 2014 press event.
