More on Steam Hardware

Engadget has follow-ups to comments recently attributed to Ben Krasnow about plans for Steam hardware. Ben says he was misquoted (or mistranslated) and that he did not confirm Linux support and he does not think they will be showing off anything of the sort this year as reported (thanks HARDOCP). Meanwhile, there's an interview with Valve's Gabe Newell on The Verge where the Valve honcho talks of how they are working with many hardware partners on "Good, Better," or "Best" boxes for playing Steam games, and also goes ahead and says they will be releasing Linux-based "Steam boxes," among other things, also discussing their interest in low-latency controllers, biometric controllers, and other cutting edge-ness. This includes much discussion of open versus closed systems.

Although theoretically a fat beam of infrared should be faster than the speed of electricity amirite?

Seeing as how electricity travels at the speed of light in a vacuum, and somewhere around 95-97% of said speed in most other materials, the difference is probably not really noticeable.

And infrared just sucks for data transfers of any kind, unless it's precisely aimed and stays that way...
