Steam MachinesThe moment that many of you have been waiting for – the highly anticipated Valve Steam Machines have started to be made available to buy!

Valve has just announced that they have a range of hardware now available – their new Steam Controller, the Valve Steam Link and of course the Valve Steam Machines.

Just in case you have been missing from the planet for the last year-or-two, those Valve Steam Machines are PC style games consoles built to run Valve’s SteamOS and look at home in the living room.

The Steam Machines come bundled with a Steam Controller so you get gaming straight away.

The Steam Link hardware has also officially launched today and this has been designed to allow existing Steam gamers to access the range of their current games across their home network. All you have to do is connect the new adapter to your Steam PC or Steam Machine and this squirts your games to where you need them whilst supporting 1080p streaming.
