Steam Hardware Available For Pre-order & Early Delivery

By - | Views: 15,298
Valve has made some of the Steam Universe hardware available for pre-order and you can even get them early. This includes the Steam Controller and Steam Link.

They also have a swanky new video advertising the controller:

The Steam Link and Steam Controller will be sent out in October if you pre-order, and the quantity will be limited. I was planning to grab one right away, but due to moving home on Monday I will have to wait and pray there's still a few controllers left to grab early.

Personally, I still think the Steam Controller looks fantastic, and I can't wait to grab one to show off to friends (and write it up here). Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Neither appear to be available for pre-order for me. All I see is the option to add it to my wishlist.

Also:
* more details and information available about Allienware Alpha (revision 2), with launching page and FAQ

Interesting bits are no dual boot officially supported, SteamOS only, new gaming content with launch. Seems to have 7.5k rpm disk now too
* HTC dev kits for developers have begun shipping https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=piu7b6eEGSU

As far as I heard, some countries (Poland and France for some strange reason) are excluded for now. I have possibility to order it when logged in.

It doesn't show the price and "Add to Cart" for me either (Brazil).
I can confirm they show up if I try with cc=us

It's seems Bulgaria is also excluded. It's probably available only for USA Canada and England as always.

Add to cart is available in Finland. So it's not that limited.

I'd love it if the controller can comfortably replace the keyboard/mouse combo on the living room sofa even for some of the use cases. That's what Valve tells us but I won't buy anything until I see actual tests from unbiased reviewers. I have no interest in Steam Link or the pre-built Steam Machines though.

Not quite. Seems to be available in most Western European and Nordic countries at least.

I have no desire nor need for a Steam Machine seeing as I've basically built my own (okay, it's running Xubuntu not SteamOS; close enough). The controller, on the other hand; I want to touch it, caress it, whisper sweat nothings into its ear, and feed it strawberries covered in whipped cream. Hopefully they'll have Steam Controllers at a best buy or GameStop or whatever near me so that I can hold one and try it out.

It seems that you can make a pre-order to Sweden as well.

Like Keyrock, I'm most interested in the controller for purchase but will build my own Steam Machine.

But unfortunately no purchase will happen from me right now. I will wait to at least next year.
