I was asking about the box(es). Seemed like they might have been competition for consoles in the early days of being announced but haven't heard much more about them since. The link thing isn't for me but the controller might be of interest if I hear good things about it.

My gaming pc will always be hooked up to a large TV or projector anyway so I won't need the link. I don't even have a monitor for it.

I might only use the link if I don't want us my pc access for it. and for those(buddies of mine) that don't want use my pc if they want to have couch experience which is what these are supposed to represent any ways

Well like a said they're overpriced for the performance they offer. Consumers are better off building their own rig for less money with similar performance.

Thanks. I think I'm going to focus on gradually upgrading my gaming pc too.

Would like to hear opinions from anyone that does get the box though.

There are some reviews on YouTube. LinusTechTips and other tech reviewers have reviewed some, primarily the Alienware Alpha.

Alienware Steam Machine Falls to $375 Until Next Week. July 29, 2016 . 7:00pm


Console alternative? Alienware Steam Machine falls to $375 for the mid-range Core i5 unit. PC Gaming Summer Sales marches on with cheap Valkyria Chronicles and Resident Evil titles.

When you think of an Alienware PC, images of an overpriced beast of a PC desktop probably fills your head. It’s the complete opposite with the Alienware Steam Machine (and its predecessor the Alienware Alpha).



Compact and light, it’s smaller than PS4 and now priced about what a PS4/Xbox used to cost on release: only $375 after coupon. This is a huge drop for the Core i5 mid-model Alienware Steam Machine at Dell. Originally, this gaming rig was listed at $650 earlier this year.

The deal on Alienware’s Steam Machine is valid as of writing through August 4th. Make sure during checkout you sign up for Dell’s Advantage Rewards program for extra perks. For the price of giving them your email address, you’ll get free two business day shipping (otherwise a $15 purchase) plus 5% back in reward points value.

If you need games to go along with your Alienware Steam Machine, there’s deals aplenty this week. The GMG 2016 PC Gaming Summer Sale has entered phase 6 of its sale. Starting earlier today at GMG we’re seeing a ton of deals on Resident Evil titles, including a new low on the Resident Evil Deluxe Origins Bundle. Another sale going on this week is the WinGameStore SEGA Summer Sale with $4.74 Valkyria Chronicles.

Note that the Steam Machine comes with SteamOS (in lieu of Windows), so your gaming pick will depend on titles that are compatible with the SteamOS/Linux platform (you can of course pick up an OEM copy of Windows 8 and just plop it into the system). Shipping is free and it of course comes with Valve’s Steam Controller.


Game deals brought to you by the crew at Dealzon. Disclaimer: sales from certain retailer help support Siliconera.
