Valve opens pre-orders for Steam Machines, Steam Link a GAME exclusive in the UK

Valve's long awaited answer to the living room PC, the Steam Machines, are now open for pre-orders.

The Alienware Steam Machine will be available in the US at GameStop and through Steam itself, as well as the Steam Link streaming box and the Steam Controller.

Those who opt to pre-purchase the hardware will receive it onOctober 16th, several weeks before the official launch date of November 10th.

The launch of the Alienware box follows fellow partner CyberPower offering its own Steam Machine directly through its website.

More of the Steam Machine partners are slated to make their respective products available for purchase soon, with European and UK launch information yet to be detailed for many of the vendors. US prices start at $449 (292).

GAME has been named as the exclusive UK retail partner for the Steam Link, which allows PC owners to stream games from an existing PC to a connected TV or monitor. Prices start at 59.99, with a number of Steam top-up card bundles also on offer.

All SKUs of the Link include Valve's touchpad-equipped Steam Controller, which will also be available separately, priced at €54 (39).
