I was thinking of buying one but since its already over a year old maybe I should wait.

I dont think they are. They're still fooling around a lot with the device as is. I also think the nature of the device is just to do simple HD streaming, so the only update I can see would be to do 4k.

I wish Steam could Stream to the Chromecast.

Doubt it. It's a very simple device.

There's not much to upgrade without changing the core concept. As another user suggested, 4K is a possibility, but I would think 4K content isn't mainstream enough to warrant it right now.

It's only $35, anyway.
