Topic of the Week: Describe your perfect Valve press conference

Topic of the Week: Valve press conference

The obsession of the week is that rumour that Valve is hosting a press conference at GDC today, 3pm on the 3rd, and that a big announcement is imminent. The official line is that this is not the case at all, but speculation and rumours have a life of their own.  

We’ve probably already seen Valve’s biggest announcement, the Vive, revealed just before GDC, but we shouldn’t let that stop us from dreaming. So for our Topic of the Week, we want to know what the perfect Valve press conference would be. Half-Life 3 announced? Left 4 Dead 3 announced? Gabe reveals that he’s leaving this world for a virtual one? Let us know in the comments. 

As always, I’ll get the ball rolling.

I have to confess, I don’t really care about Half-Life 3. It’s been so long, and the rumours never seem to abate, and I’m just exhausted. Sure, I would like to play a sequel to one of the best PC games ever developed, but I’m also prepared for this never happening.

What I’d really like to see is more Vive stuff, and we’re probably going to be hearing a lot about that anyway. Previously, Valve said that it wasn’t going to be doing its own VR thing, and would instead support Oculus, which is what SteamVR started off doing.

So what made them change their mind, and what’s so special about the Vive.

Anyway, enough from me. Let us know what your perfect Valve press conference would be like.
