Half-Life 3 Trademark Registered By Valve

Valve have had a rather buys week, first announced a Steam operating system, then revealing Steam Machines and finally unveiling their very own Steam controller. Of course all three announcements are linked together by the Steam Machines, Valve’s hopeful champion aiming to take over the living room by presenting players with upgradable hardware running an operating system dedicated to gaming while using a cool controller.

But right now everyone is wondering why they should actually buy a Steam Machine when a computer does everything already. The answer is Half-Life 3.

Valve have just registered the trademark for Half-Life 3, sparking rumours as to whether they intend on announcing the now infamous game as a launch title for the Steam Machines. Should this turn out to be true then doubtless there would be plenty of people willing to pick up Valve’s intended console killer, although I’ve got no doubt that it would be made available on PC as well.

However, before you get your hopes up too much do keep in mind that it’s very common practice for companies to register trademarks like this, whether or not they actually plan on ever using them. Having said that, with all of Valve’s recent announcements the timing would certainly be good.

  1. Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? With thanks

    • Setting up a blog is incredibly easy. I’m using WordPress.com for this site, and it makes writing posts a breeze. If you choose to go self-hosted then it becomes a bit more technical, but still very manageable.
