Valve might be working on its own in-house VR headset

A slot in the front also seems to contain a USB port, which will probably be used for attaching peripherals. We are still in heavy rumour territory at this point but with Artifact finally coming out this month, we'll hopefully see Valve ramp up its other projects in 2019.

The report suggests the resolution isn't drastically changing, with Valve's attempt instead focusing on increasing the field of view to 135-degrees.

The wild claims don't stop there, however. The headset features the same sort of material for comfort that is now used on Valve's "Knuckles" VR motion controller, which has just had its third version ship out to developers.

UploadVR notes that the padding on the back of the prototype Valve headset is similar to that on Valve's third-gen Knuckles controller developer kits, which were unveiled back in September.

Yet, it is not unheard of Valve to release its own hardware.

Italy seeks to cut 2019 growth forecasts to get European Union budget deal
Italy now runs the risk of being fined up to 0.2 percent of GDP - which would amount to about €35 billion ($39.5 billion). European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker hinted, on the eve of the deadline, that a compromise was unlikely.

Despite the continued losses, HTC said its gross margin, - which reflects the difference between revenue and cost of goods sold - rose to 4.7 percent in the July-September period from 2.7 percent a quarter earlier because of better controls on costs and stable sales of its virtual reality products. It is true that the Taiwanese company has been struggling financially even more than usual lately, so Valve might want a backup plan, in case HTC goes under.

Valve is not a newcomer to the game hardware market but its rumored latest direction is looking to be particularly bold.

Nevertheless, the information is not official yet and the photos might be of an internal prototype that will never see the light of day.

On top of that, UploadVR says Valve is planning to launch a Half-Life game with the headset, which would serve as more of a prequel to the series rather than the highly anticipated Half-Life 3.

If you haven't bought into the VR lifestyle yet, what would it take?
