Steam's PC Stream to TV

#1jaymart_2kPosted 10/6/2013 1:12:37 PM
Can't wait for this thing. Hopefully will hear more info soon.

I know there also making a PC/Console but I'm more interested in there PC Stream to TV console.

Hopefully that will sell for no more then $100 cause that will be day 1 pre-order for me.

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

No, there's 2 different consoles Valve is producing.

1 box is a pc/console

1 box streams from PC to console only

SteamOS is not a machine. It will also be free.

No, we're just being smarter than you.

SteamOS is an Operating System. It is not a PC or a box of any kind.

Both are the same thing, the difference is one costs much less due to being meant for streaming games off your PC instead of playing them ON the Steam Machine, which is what the more expensive models are for.

Newell did say in an interview that they were aiming to have three tiers and that one of them would be a low-cost streaming box. That was a while ago, back in January I think.
