The Steam Hardware Weekend sale is now live and it seems Valve now sell accessories for the Steam Controller.

All items are now 30% off, but this does not include Steam Machines. Although for me in the UK it seems the Alienware Steam Machine is currently on a deal too.

I'm not entirely sure how long they have been doing this, as I haven't seen it announced anywhere. You can now buy a Wireless Receiver, a Carrying Case, an Aperture skin for the controller and a special Battery Door that has space to store the Dongle.

They can be purchased as a bundle, or separately. I was wondering how long it would be before Valve sold the Wireless Receiver by itself considering I've seen a number of people break theirs.

You can grab the accessories, a Steam Controller or a Steam Link for much cheaper than usual. Now's your chance to bag some cool kit!

Too bad the Alienware Steam Machine is not on sale in France. But the rest of the Steam Hardware is, as well as some games.

I've been using the original box to travel with my STEAM controller as I go. That case looks tempting but I would like to feel it before getting it and being disappointing.

liam, some times since you bought a steam controller, are you still happy with it ?

How the heck have people managed to break the wireless dongle?

Yep, still enjoying it.

I think this is more a question of losing it, isn't it?

I mean, I have two controllers, and one of my dongles is collecting dust somewhere at the moment...

... while we in Norway still only get the "coming soon" message on the controller page. :(

That's sad, was considering picking up one even though I'm not a controller guy. Let's hope they do well elsewhere, so chances of Valve expanding increases.

I broke mine while trying to unplug it. The case split and since then it won't connect unless I tightly squeeze a specific point just above where the USB plug is soldered on, and it disconnects as soon as I let go. Luckily, they replaced it free of charge.

In Denmark you can buy it at your local GameStop. It is often not on display though, so you have to ask. I bought it a while ago, and it was about the same price as the Steam price plus delivery, without having to deal with the actual international delivery.

Edit: Swedish GameStop also seems to have it available.
