Steam Machines are now in the wild among Valve’s beta pool, and one recipient has detailed SteamOS and the Steam controller in a series of unboxing videos.

The clips come from YouTuber Corey Nelson. You may remember him, because we posted his Steam Machine unboxing and rig teardown clips yesterday.

In the first new clip above, Nelson gives a quick glance of SteamOS, including settings, a ‘return to desktop’ option, and proof that he has successfully imported his existing Steam library. You can also get a glimpse of him running Left4Dead 2 in Big Picture Mode.

Next, Nelson gives an overview of the Steam Controller. You can see its triggers, home button, escape button and touch pads. He adds that there’s no way to start up your Steam Machine using the controller, but that the bundled USB cable is very long.

What do you think of the Steam Machine strategy so far? Let us know below.
