    Consumers asked to fill in survey on playing habits and favoured genres and platforms
    Valve is inviting fans to visit its offices and test out unreleased games and hardware prototypes.
    Announcing the move on the Steam Forum, Valve’s Burton Johnsey (BurtonJ) said that those interested should fill in a playtester survey about their playing habits, what genres they play and on which platforms.
    The Half-Life and Portal developer is looking for people located in the Seattle/Bellevue area, although it said it would look to add international playtesting in future.
    “We're looking for folks to come to Valve and playtest both released and unreleased versions of our games as well as play around with some of our hardware prototypes,” said Johnsey.
    “If you have interest in stopping by (most sessions last around an hour), please fill out the survey below. We're looking for people local to the Seattle/Bellevue area, but you're welcome to fill out the survey no matter where you live as we may have plans for remote playtests in the future.”

    You can fill in the survey here= http://www.valvesoftware.com/gamersu...?action=survey
    Valve previously teased that it would begin public beta tests for it’s hardware prototypes next year, whilst it is already running internal betas on its products.
    The studio however has yet to go into detail publicly on exactly what it is working on, with speculation suggesting it could be working on virtual reality headsets and even a new console.
    Bringing in playtesters from the public however could mean that Valve is readying up a reveal in the coming months on what it has been working on.
    fill it here: http://www.valvesoftware.com/gamersu...?action=survey

    OK I lost count when I was counting my games, and since I play so many god damn genres and vary it throughout each week it looks like I spend 24/7 playing nearly everything.

    How often do you experience motion sickness (nausea/dizziness) when playing first-person shooter games?
    could this be a hint at them making one of those goggles with screens in them?

    5 miles and you're not doing it? I would KILL (not really) to live 10 miles near Valve, just to be able to visit them.

    I'm going to guess you don't actually care about visiting Valve, because personally I would ride a bike (or walk even) 5 miles to visit Valve. I mean come on now, it's Valve.

    Seems like a pretty bold move... I'm sure they have to sign non-disclosure agreements and such but still, inviting the public is just inviting a leak. A leak which I will enjoy.
