Valve Announces New Steam Machine Partners – Alienware, Origin PC, and More [Update: Specs]

Share this:

Valve’s army is growing. This year, the company plans to bring the PC gaming experience into the living room with their innovative new products; the Steam Machine, Steam Controller, and SteamOS.

Helping to carry out this vision is an expanding list of third-party manufacturers developing their own version of the platform based on Valve’s original Steam Machine currently in beta testing.

Last November, iBuyPower unveiled two versions of the Steam Machine codenamed “Gordon” and “Freeman”, both which will go on sale later this year for $499 USD. Now, in addition to iBuyPower and Digital Storm, Engadget reports that 11 more hardware manufacturers have signed on to produce their own third-party Steam Machines.

Check out the full line-up of third-party Steam Machine manufacturers as it currently stands:
