Also Valve's presenting glNext + final steam controllers and steam machines at GDC.  There's also word of (GAF freaking out) Chet Faliszek doing a talk thing at EGX Rezzed about a *mystery topic*.

Never heard about glNext! It's it a fork of the openGL?

 

Yes, if i'm not wrong It's the successor to the OpenGL. Valve is into it because they can't stand being dependant of DirectX and Microsoft tools, i guess it's also due to their SteamMachines (which runs on their SteamOS that is basicaly a Linux OS with SteamBigPicture runing on it).

 

The thing is that the conference name is "The Future of High Performance Graphics", so there might be some really interesting demos there :)

Cool, will do some digging but that's good news. After all everything is OpenGL outside the Microsoft realm.

Surely they have to announce a game of some sorts soon? It's been a while.
