Update: Apologies, but the gift count here is just for Team Fortress 2, not Steam. We apologize for the confusion.
No press allowed at the newly-announced Valve-hosted Steam Dev Days conference happening in Jan 15-16 in Seattle. For $95, game creators get to talk shop, check out Steam OS, prototype Steam Machines and more. But if they announce Half-Life 3 there (they won't), how will anyone know? (Twitter, probably).
