Valve has today announced its plans for next week's Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, noting that it will be showing off a family of new Steam devices alongside the final Steam Controller, plus an assortment of new living room devices and a previously-unannounced SteamVR hardware system.
Valve's own virtual reality has been shrouded in mystery for awhile now, but in June of last year we got a glimpse at the headset thanks to a showing in Boston. According to a Reddit recount
of the event, the headset consisted of "dual vertical S4 (OLED) screens, running a total of 2160x1280," though we aren't sure if that has been revised but time will tell.
Of course, Valve isn't the only one at GDC that will be showing virtual reality gear, with Oculus, Sony and most likely Samsung all heading to the event to show off their respective hardware. One thing is for sure, virtual reality is definitely becoming a true reality.
GDC will also mark the 13th anniversary of Valve's first public announcement of Steam, which has now grown to over 4500 games, 400 million user-generated content and 125 million active accounts. That is definitely one milestone to celebrate, and hopefully we may get a hint at the elusive Half Life 3.
