AliveGameZone - Valve has begun delivering the first batch of its Steam Machine to the 300 lucky beta selectors and some have already started posting unboxing videos and pictures online.
Looks a lot like my first edition Elite XBox360.. only more square-shaped and with much better plugs/connections at the back. It's a PC basically passing out as a console. A ponsole? Saw the video with the crates and all.. very professional.
I love the crate it came in, the only thing that has put me off slightly about the steam box despite good feeback is the controller, it just looks horrible... obviously it's down to a matter of taste but I just don't like it. Certainly want to try the OS if it can be put into a dual boot config though.
It's a pwnsole! Aiyaiyaiii! That was bad... Sorry!
Alienware have been building mini pcs exactly the same as this for years now. It looks exactly like an alienware PC... Check out the X51 to see what I mean. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ali...
You can install SteamOS on that and have a dedicated gaming machine in your living room :) just get a controller
Alienware *has* been building mini PCs... GRAMMAR TARD!!!
Game over! gabe knows best
I've seen a couple of articles on this, but what exactly is a steam machine? Is it a PC? Thanks for the help.
yes its a PC with a OS based on Linux that can also stream windows games from another Windows PC. but then again. any PC with this OS is a "Steam Machine" only difference between this and another computer is the OS and the neat Package
I can't wait for this to be available, I was thinking I'd have to choose between Ps4 or Xbox One but Steam Machine solved that issue. :)
You think the average customer wanna pay 800-100 bucks for a steam machine instead of a ps4 or xbone? I think not, this never gonna be a big hit. Only the hardcore gamers will buy one. If they don't prefer a PC with windows, like me
