Stephen Kick, CEO of Nightdive Studios: When I was growing up I had a small budget for PC games so I often hit the bargain bin at Babbage's, Computer City, or Electronics Boutique. I would have a certain criteria that would need to be met before I was parted with my lawn mowing money, specifically how radical the box art was and how much the box weighed.

Better yet are abilities which require your role-play involvement, because as we tend to say, the more you put in, the more you get out.

It also heard that some of these devices - maybe the controller itself - could be (or include) biometric sensors. These could measure heart beat (via a bracelet), skin galvanic response (sweaty hands) and feed that information back into the game. Sources intimated to The Verge that the technology was so good, "You won't ever look back." … [Read more...] about Valve job ad adds weight to Steam Box rumour
