Briefly: Valve sets launch timer, Microsoft Xbox One vertical warning
Valve Software is hinting at a new launch for helping gamers play in the living room. A countdown <a href="" rel='nofollow'>timer</a> that will end on Monday could potentially be the launch of the rumored <a href=" team.future/" rel='nofollow'>Steam Box</a>, a Linux-based game console that founder and game developer <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Gabe Newell</a> strongly hinted at during a presentation at the New Orleans LinuxCon earlier this week. <br />

<strong>Microsoft warns Xbox One customers to keep console horizontal</strong><br />
<br />
Microsoft has warned gamers not to place the incoming <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Xbox One</a> vertically, as it could damage the console. Senior director of product management and planning for Xbox Albert Panello <a href="" rel='nofollow'>told</a> <em>GameSpot</em> that it "wouldn't be a cooling problem, we just didn't design the drive for vertical. Because it's a slot loading drive, we just didn't design it for both." Panello also revealed that approximately 80 percent of <a href=" .release.for.the.360/" rel='nofollow'>Xbox 360</a> owners lay their console horizontally rather than standing it on one end.
