    Steam Machines and their accessories have been released.
    Anyone buying any, or already own one?

    Honestly, I'd rather build a rig and install SteamOS on it. Well, actually no. I'd still run Windows, but my point is, if I'm spending a chunk of cash on a gaming rig, I want it to be good hardware-wise for at least 2 years. Maybe 3 years, if I'm lucky. I can justify 700+ on a computer if it will last for at least 2 years.

    On the other hand, the accessories I may try out. I've read many great things about them.

    I dunno about those things. I was emailed about the Steam controller. SteamOS is basically just Linux... Does it even support many games?

    Supposed to. At least the very popular ones.

    Some are Windows only, so what did Steam do? Integrate Wine into Steam OS? That'll come down well...

    I hope they played this one right. Personally, Steam is a great online platform with the nearest match being EA's own and exclusive Origin, or maybe another I don't know of. A Steam PC is going a bit far... lol.

    I'd say it's for the people with 80,000+ games who already invested $100,000 plus into steam already and are now like, "well fuck it, I got this far."
