This week on the Short-Takes, still more rumors of the sequels (you know which ones they are), the Destiny beta gets detailed, the new Killzone is a fifty (50!) gigabyte download, and Valve' s first Steam Machine prototype is not a slouch.
This week on the Short-Takes, Valve storms out with the triple threat of Left 4 Dead 3, Half Life 3, and Portal 3. Just kidding, could you imagine? No, they've announced a new OS, a new business model for game consoles, and a new controller to go along with it. Also this week, Indie games won't hit the X1 until early next year, and Joseph Staten leaves Bungie.
