Steam Link hardware officially walks the plank, there's an app for that

By - | Views: 12,253

Valve has quietly mentioned that the Steam Link is selling out across the world with stock either sold out or about to be sold out. It's already sold out in Europe with stock in the US almost gone too, so if you want one you better act fast.

It's a shame, as I don't think they device really lived up to the potential it offered. Valve didn't exactly do a lot with it after release, although is did basically serve its purpose. We knew this day was coming, since it has repeatedly been on sale for next to nothing.

Valve will continue support it, but at this point they're probably hoping more people start using the Steam Link App which you won't need yet another device for picking up dust.

I was quite impressed with the Steam Link Android app at release. which Valve has slowly made some good improvements on like being able to stream to multiple devices, giving you some streamed local co-op.

Did you buy one? Are you sad to see it go? Do let us know in the comments.

Ha, it's funny that CEC is supposed to be this awesome thing that will control all the devices, but then does it in a really messed up way.

Usually if I want to watch Netflix/Amazon Prime, my new TV has a dedicated button on the remote for each, but last night I just hit the power button, which turned on the PS4 Pro, and then I controlled it with the remote...
