Valve takes a step toward hardware, 'frustrated by the lack of innovation'

Valve takes a step toward hardware, 'frustrated by the lack of innovation'

September 4, 2012 | By Mike Rose




Newsbrief: Valve has further fueled speculation that it is working on its own gaming hardware, thanks to a job listing on its official website that is looking for an "Industrial Designer."

"We're frustrated by the lack of innovation in the computer hardware space though, so we're jumping in", reads the listing. "Even basic input, the keyboard and mouse, havent really changed in any meaningful way over the years. There's a real void in the marketplace, and opportunities to create compelling user experiences are being overlooked."

Valve's Gabe Newell said earlier this year, "If we have to sell hardware we will. We have no reason to believe we're any good at it, it's more we think that we need to continue to have innovation and if the only way to get these kind of projects started is by us going and developing and selling the hardware directly then that's what we'll do."
