Half-Life 2: Return to Ravenholm Screenshots

A post from Friday on has screenshots from "Return to Ravenholm," allegedly a new Half-Life 2 episode being developed as HL2 Episode Four by Arkane Studios before the project was cancelled. They say this was in the works between 2006 and 2007. Valve has yet to comment on this, hopefully because they are so hard at work on Episode Three. Thanks VG247.

A Steam Box isn't a console though... it's basically an HTPC. It runs PC games on Linux or Windows. It will probably have low-mid end standardized parts in it, but the warped mainstream definition of "next-gen" doesn't apply at all.

True. It's not going to be strictly a console but they are trying to compete in the same area (and they've talked about them being highly modular, so as to allow for upgrading, but that's totally off topic.) They aren't going to do anything to push their competitors devices. Even disregarding their hardware ambitions there would still really be no reason to think they'll be tying any news to Microsoft's and Sony's future announcements.

Developers have already shown off 'next gen' stuff. Waiting for them to officially announce new consoles isn't really something devs do, (unless there is some exclusivity tied to it.) so why would Valve? Especially when they really haven't been involved heavily in the console scene, and they will be releasing their own competing hardware soon.
