    Here are Valve's 12 Steam Machines partners (so far) « Engadget

    Thus far, the only third parties we know of that're making Steam Machines are iBuyPower (pictured above) and Digital Storm -- today, that all changes. Alienware, Falcon Northwest, iBuyPower, CyberPowerPC, Origin PC, Gigabyte, Materiel.net, Webhallen, Alternate, Next, Zotac and Scan Computers are among the first companies signed on to support Valve's initiative, Engadget learned this afternoon.

    The entire lineup will be on display this week at CES 2014, and we'll have many more details in the coming days. Beyond the dozen companies above, it's totally possible that there are other third parties signed on for Steam Machines -- we'll have to wait and see when Valve unveils everything at its press conference tomorrow afternoon.

    Valve SteamOS keynote at CES tonight! Hopefully we'll get more news in the morning on AAA publisher support for the project...

    That Next SPA machine looks like some horrible early XBox prototype!

    I like the look of the Digital Storm machine but I think side/top mounted USBs are an awful idea for a PC intended as primarily being used as a games console - trip over your pad and you could quite easily break the USB off in the socket... would not be happy having just spent the best part of £2k!

    Yeah. They should have stuck with the standard Antec ISK600 case (without the X), or better still, chosen a nicer looking case.

    I'd say the iBuyPower SBX, Scan and Alienware devices are the best looking. The others are either ridiculous (CyberPower - looks like the crazed drawings of a 9 year old), or just plain not trying.

    Huh? Where's that price? Can't see it anywhere...

    EDIT: Derp. Top end price for one of them I see. Probably workstation spec with top end TITAN card.

    Steam Controller impressions: A case of love-and-hate-at-first-sight « Ars Technica

    A full evaluation of the Steam Controller will obviously take much more than the few minutes I had with it tonight. Tonight's first impression, though, left me extremely conflicted, with each potential step forward in design matched by a seemingly equal step back.

    I thought the reason most PC gamers shot down console users was (apart from graphics) the fact they could react much faster in first person shooters like Battlefield as they had a mouse and a keyboard.

    Have steam not shot themselves in the foot with this controller or can you still use a mouse and keyboard?
