Valve and its partners have just announced that the Steam Hardware will be made available shortly for anyone who wishes to pre-order them. Though the hardware will roll out this fall in North America and Europe, fans may reserve their gear starting today. Aside from Steam, customers can head over to GameStop, EB Games, Micromania, and GAME UK to check out if the manufacturers have made their offerings available for pre-order and if not, they will be doing that shortly.
US customers will be able to pre-order the Steam Machine, Steam Link, and Steam Controller from either Steam or GameStop starting today and will get them after the 16th of October, which is a few weeks ahead of the official release on the 10th of November. GameStop, EB Games, Micromania, and GAME UK will also join the pre-order deal in Europe and Canada, but offering only the Steam Link and Steam Controller at first.
Word is that GameStop, EB Games, and Micromania have already started accepting pre-orders for Steam Hardware in more than 5,700 worldwide retail stores and even CyberPower started taking pre-orders for their Steam Machine directly from their website. The prices for a Steam Machine range from $499 and can even go up to $4,999.99, while the Steam Link and Steam Controller is said to be priced at $49. If you wish to get familiar with what hardware is available, head on over to Steam’s hardware section or the appropriate manufacturers’ website.
