Rumours of Valve's 'Steam Box' games console are picking up momentum following recent rumors of the game developer's willingness to enter the hardware market.

The latest whisperings online have revealed a modular console design patent filed by Valve which would let users swap out components to change their gaming experience – such as swapping out thumbsticks for trackballs.

The mystery box's specs line up with the final console's rumoured spec list – an Intel i7 processor, 8GB RAM and Nvidia graphics – but we're still taking this with a dose of salt for the time being.
