The first batch of Steam Box machines have been sent out to beta testers, and some have already been delivered. Of course some are already posting unboxing videos on YouTube.
Damn! Now that's what you call a high class beta. I can't believe it comes in a crate loooool. Man I really want one (The crate alone will do :p). They really did a great job with the case design considering the components some of these machines have. Edit - @Abriael Another video (Thanks gaf) --> http://www.youtube.com/watc...
The used removed that one. Looks like he's shy lol :D
I would open it with a crow bar.
Or a £1.49 key ;)
Is that an Xbox one...lol Lots of power in that form factor..
An xbox one with a 360 faceplate. Absolutely zero style.
If the Xbox One looks like a VCR, then this looks like a Comcast cable box.
My misses would kill me if i had something like that on our cabinet
That's a shame cos when your missus saw what was in my cabinet she gave me sweet sugar, two times.
What's your point ? Your missus wears the pants ? Or she doesn't like big powerful machines?
Personally I could give two chits about my misses opinions on my entertainment. Step up, be a man in your relationship.
In other words, grow a pair yes?
Because in the real world the state of an electrical cabinet is way more important than a peaceful stable home life. Forgive me for not taking advice from a basement dweller
I don't like the controller, i prefer thumbsticks personally. If you could plug your x box controller or ps4 controller into it and it will work. I would seriously look at buying one. This will work with mouse and keyboard, anyone know? Will it have internet?
Controller looks like a pain, but looks can be deceiving
I am very interested in trying it out. Plan to grab one at retail when available, if only just to see. Hoping I take to it though, obviously.
I don't see why they don't have a controller with analogue sticks alongside this one....the whole concept of the Steam Machines is choice. Sure it would be good to plug your PS4/Xbox One controller in but it would be better if your playing with an official controller. The only games previews keep talking about with the controller are FPS games which it seems to be made for in my opinion and then RTS games.....thats all. How you could play a fighting game with all the combos and that I'll never know.
You can plug your Xbox or PS controller into it and it will work fine. I don't play any PC games without an Xbox controller, they're too sexy.
any controller with linux drivers will work that is if you don't put windows on it , then any controller that works with windows would work as well
1) I'm peaty sure you didn't use the controller at all so you opinion is invalid. 2) You can use a ps3/ps4/360/xbone or any controller just like any pc. 3) You can use a mouse and keyboard. 4) From my understanding the steam controller is faster and more precise then a joystick.. So yeah.
"From my understanding..." See number one from your own comment.
Oh I did not know you have one and used it for an extended period of time to properly judge the controller, thanks for your impressions on something you do not own or probably have not even touched. It is like hearing everyone say GOTY for a game that is not out yet
"Will it have internet" *Facepalm*
Yes, because it is not a nintendo product.
> I don't like the controller, i prefer thumbsticks personally. It depends what kind of games you like to play. Thumbstick controller are useless in games like Crusader Kings 2, Europa Universalis 4 and alike. To me Steam Controller look better for FPS games than thumbstick but I doubt it could beat keyboard+mouse. Unless Valve removed support for XBox or PS controllers they works without problems.
When did you get to try it??
Thought I was watching someone take apart an Xbox One because of how big that crate is.
still at least looking better than xbox VCR one
I prefer it to the PS4's eraser design as well.
If that is the design that is one sexy design that needs to be in-style. Much better than the VCR design from 1980 taht apparently needed to be revived.
Such an obvious counter troll.
PS4 is sexy and sleek.
Wonder what the spec are? Regardless i bet it cost a lot still
So, Was it the video makes who only got these? What a con...
Video Makers* Typos... Urgh!
this console is bound to die soon.
Well, it's not a console, for starters. You entirely missing the whole point of Steam Universe.
You are bound to die soon.
Your virginity is bound to live forever.
Considering the fact that Sony is on worse financial footing than Valve or Microsoft, I wouldn't make such bold statements.
the company doesn't have to fail for a console to fail/die....
andrew actually your statement is wrong valve is only worth about 3 billion and sony is worth about 18 billion. Microsoft is the leader then sony then nintendo then valve.
Microsoft spends more on marketing than Valve is worth. LOL
I don't know if I've ever been more jealous in my life.
Valve wins again, Most powerful console. if my next PC didn't have to be primary for animation software, second for gaming then i would def buy one of these.
What did you spring for a Quadro?
Valve has never made a console. How did they "win again?"
What is up with that controller ?
That's what innovation looks like.
Lol, I heart fully agree to that statement. That was pulled of nicely lol, cuz I saw his comment then I scrolled down more to see your comment. That was hillarious.
Right? It looks like something Tiger Electronics made.
Steam Groupies ...that controller sucks
Console groupies are threatened by it :( Cheer up guy, Sony and Microsoft will have to innovate again sometime. Maybe for the PS5 and Xbox One Two.
That controller really does look like ass!!!
[email protected]%&¿ the lamebox pc gaming is for nerds and plus it has no disc drive I'm totally not for a digital future... So I hope this don't make it!
Are you 12?
I say hes 10
Stop insulting kids!
@buynit No, I gotta say he is 9 TURNING 10 in January. Though we can't really know unless he tells us, but with that kinda grammar he possesses in that comment it still is possible he is underage lol.
I hope you don't make it punk.
... coming from someone trolling the forums on a gaming website. Hilarious.
The last time I used a disk drive was to install Windows.
Steam groupies know this system sucks so they defend it.
I feel bad for you.
looks pretty pretty coo.
Such amazing delivery box :o, i would keep my most precious stuff in that and hang it on the wall. I honestly think the controller looks pretty awesome and I can't wait to get my hands on it.
Everything from now on should come in a wooden crate!! :)
