Steam Machine: 13 models priced & detailed, 250 games running on SteamOS

Tuesday, 7 January 2014 01:13 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Valve brought 13 Steam machine models to show to press at CES 2014 – one more than we were expecting after a list of partners published yesterday.

In addition to the dozen manufacturers listed yesterday, Valve had Digital Storm’s machine on show. Photos from the event published by The Verge show a wide variety of boxes, ranging from set-top box sized micro-consoles to consoles the size of a PS4 or Xbox One.

Polygon gathered specs and initial pricing details for the boxes on show from a Valve brochure; see the full list below. Maingear’s Steam Machine was not detailed.

Valve offered no release date information, preferring to leave individual announcements to manufacturers. Instead of making these announcements, it intends to use its CES presence to gather feedback, to assist its partners in crafting the final devices.

Around 250 Steam games support Steam Machines so far.

Valve confirmed that manufacturers will be producing their own versions of the Steam Controller, although Valve will still produce its own model. On that note, Engadget reports Valve hasn’t completely ruled out making its own Steam machine.

The rest of the press event will be devoted to hands-on and interviews; we have staff on the ground and hope to have a full report for you shortly.
