Last week was considered a pretty exciting week for the gaming community, even more so if you are huge fan of Steam gaming. Valve, the driving force behind Steam games, have unveiled a slew of Steam Machines from various vendors, plus a nifty gadget called Steam Link which will allow you to stream all your Steam content, in 1080p, from any PC or Steam Machines on the same home network to your HDTV in any room. The device is slated to be available this November for $49.99. Steam Controller will cost an additional $49.99, which you’re definitely going to need. Among the 15 rigs announced (yes! 15!) were some that we have seen previously on this blog, including the likes of the liquid-cooled Maingear Drift (from $849.99), Alpha-based Alienware Steam Machine (from $479.99) and AMD Athlon-powered iBuyPower SBX (from $459.99).
The rest of the Steam Machines are Alternate Steam Machine (from $1,099.99), Asus ROG GR8S (from $699.99), Digital Storm Eclipse ($699.99), Gigabyte BRIX Pro ($599.99), Material.net Steam Machine ($899.99), NextBox (from $799.99; featured image above), ORIGIN OMEGA (from $899.99), Scan 3XS ST (from $999.99), Syber Steam Machine (from $499.99), Webhallen S15-01 ($949.99), ZOTAC SN970 ($999.99) and finally, the priciest from the bunch, the Falcon Northwest Tiki which starts at $1,999.99. These Steam Machines, along with other Steam hardware such as the Link and the HTC Vive VR headset, will be simultaneously available starting from November 2015.
