Steam Link Announced

Valve announces Steam Link, a new product to allow gamers to stream content from a Steam computer to any room in the house, presumably the new living room device they mentioned last week. They promise more details at the GDC, and here's what they say for now: "Steam Machines, Windows PCs, Macs, and Linux PCs will be able to take advantage of a new product announced at GDC called Steam Link. Designed to extend your Steam experience to any room in the house, Steam Link allows you to stream all your Steam content from any PC or Steam Machine on the same home network. Supporting 1080p at 60Hz with low latency, Steam Link will be available this November for $49.99, and available with a Steam Controller for an additional $49.99 in the US (worldwide pricing to be released closer to launch)."

This leads me to believe the SteamBox initiative is dead. This is actually more along the lines of what most people were looking for. An inexpensive way to play games where ever. There was no way I was goign to buy a Steambox when I have a multi-thousand dollar gaming rig in my office (nor would my wife let me given she's already putting up with me havint two consoles in the living room) but this inexpensive option allows for all the flexibility of a PC in the living room with a low overhead.

They've tested the technology, I've been doing it between my wife's laptop and my PC for months. It's solid so this makes sense, now if they start letting applications like Plex enter the equation then they'd have a killer device.
