Valve teases Steam Box related reveal on Monday

Valve is taking over the living room. The company issued another teaser for what is likely its long-in-development Steam Box on a new page on Steam's website, with a countdown set to hit zero on Monday.

"Last year, we shipped a software feature called Big Picture, a user-interface tailored for televisions and gamepads," the page reads. "This year we’ve been working on even more ways to connect the dots for customers who want Steam in the living room. Soon, we’ll be adding you to our design process, so that you can help us shape the future of Steam."

Valve co-founder Gabe Newell said earlier this week the company would soon reveal more information about "some of the work we've done on the hardware side" of Linux-based living room gaming.

It seems the announcement on Monday will be the first of three, given the three odd circle pictographs depicted on the page. There are also three buttons on the little controller model in the picture. We're not saying, we're just saying.

    I really, really hope that Left 4 Dead 3 is involved in this. Even more than Half Life 3, seriously. Half life is really cool, but I get the most mileage out of the L4D series because I can replay the campaign so many times with friends in both cooperative and versus play. And I honestly think it's more fun. But I'll be perfectly content with Half Life 3, too. Launching the steam box with either L4D3 or Half Life 3 could make a guaranteed hit.

    Half-Life 3, finally, confirmed?

    I think it'll most likely be Left For Dead 3. A man can dream, though.

    Well, I thought the same... But when you actually think about it, Valve is REALLY teasing everything with a 3. They know what that means to the internet. They know that everybody goes insane with this kind of things. Even THE CONTROLLER on the image has 3 buttons. So, A) they're just trolling or B) they will announce Half Life 3. I don't think that they would do all these things just to end up in the middle of those options... Unless you count L4D3 as trolling. Also, what better game to launch the Steam Box with and Source 2 than Half Life 3? Damn, I'm so hyped...
