Alienware's Steam Machine amongst 13 confirmed devices

13 of the upcoming Steam Machines have at last been detailed, including one from gaming PC specialist Alienware.

Alienware’s device is apparently a result of a four-year collaboration with Valve and is “designed to combine the ease of a console with the freedom of a PC”.

"We have been working with Alienware since we began defining our vision of the Steam Machine,” Valve founder Gabe Newell stated. “Alienware's historic commitment to gaming, their design and engineering capabilities and their global reach made them an ideal partner for us on our Steam Machine project.

"The result of our collaboration is the Alienware Steam Machine, a console that encapsulates the full potential of what a Steam Machine should be."
