Valve confirmed his own presence within the PC Gaming Show, the conference entirely dedicated to gaming on PC organized within E3 2021 on June 13 (June 14 in Italy), which represents a potentially very interesting novelty, with possible implications with the rumors concerning the alleged console “SteamPal”.
This is probably the first time that Valve officially takes part in this event or that it presents itself in an official form, on the front line, during an E3 conference for at least several years now. This suggests an announcement of some importance to be made for the occasion, even if it is only guesswork.
Presence is explained simply with “A message from Valve regarding Steam“, which can mean everything and nothing, but it is impossible not to think of the rumors that have accumulated recently on the possibility that the company is thinking of some sort of game console based on Steam.
A few weeks ago, the rumor emerged that Valve could be working on a console, a sort of new Steam Machine but better studied than the first attempts released in past years. Then clues emerged that there was a project called SteamPal, which appears to be some sort of console hybrid laptop, in the style of Nintendo Switch, entirely based on Steam.
Previously, there was also a cryptic statement by Gabe Newell, head of Valve, who had reported possible big news by 2021, answering the question about the possibility of seeing Steam games on consoles: “You will have a better idea of this. by the end of the year. And I don’t think the answer is what you expect. “
All this makes us look with great interest at the presence of Valve in the PC Gaming Show 2021, which we remember is set for the June 14 at 00:30 Italian.
