AMD were not the only ones to have an announcement yesterday. Valve also had an announcement, to build on the announcement of Steam OS, the company has announced they are bringing Steam Machines to your living room.
The announcement laid plans for a wide range of the devices to be launched through 2014, but in order to get things right Valve needs your help. They are still in the prototype stage of development and need beta testers for the unit.
To be considered for the beta you have to complete a quest, the Eligibility Quest. The steps for it are outlined below :
THE HARDWARE BETA ELIGIBILITY QUEST:
Before October 25, log in to Steam and then visit your quest page to track your current status towards beta test eligibility
1. Join the Steam Universe community group
2. Agree to the Steam Hardware Beta Terms and Conditions
3. Make 10 Steam friends (if you haven't already)
4. Create a public Steam Community profile (if you haven't already)
5. Play a game using a gamepad in Big Picture mode
Once the steps are done, you will get a special badge (Yay!) which will put you into the hat which they will use to choose beta participants and hardware recipients. The next announcement is scheduled in 30 hours, so stay tuned for more
