This time Valve are set to reveal more details about their gaming hardware next week, according to Gabe Newell, who made the announcement during this year’s LinuxCon 2013 conference.

Feel free to call me Sarah or Zippy, I don’t mind! I’m the person who spends a little too much time on games, whether running around like a maniac with a chainsaw in Gears of War or trying to catch em all in Pokemon. I’ve played games forever and I’m currently studying how to make them while writing about them. When not writing (or working) I watch movies and enjoy the occasional bout of sunlight.
