VALVE Job Listing Points To Plans For New ‘Gaming Experiences’. Teledildonics, I Bet.

Valve is totally, they swear to Jehovah, not working on a console. They’re not. So just disregard these job listings.


Yes, there are employees at Valve right now who are working on  some form  of gaming hardware. What that gaming hardware is, however, remains to be seen. A job listing discovered by  Engadget  this week offers more clues as to what that hardware could be, specifically pointing to job skills like “hardware design, prototyping, testing, and production across a wide range of platforms.”

Getting more direct, the “electronics engineer” position entails working “with the hardware team to conceive, design, evaluate, and produce new types of input, output, and platform hardware.” Wait,  platform hardware? That sounds an awful lot like the  Steam Box rumorswe heard earlier this year (rumors that were later  semi-shut down).

But don’t get your hopes up just yet — just because Valve is experimenting with different types of hardware doesn’t mean that it’s looking to produce a piece of consumer hardware any time soon. We’ve reached out to Valve for further clarity, but aren’t expecting much beyond silence.

Totally not a console. Nothing to see here. Move along.
