Steam Hardware Early Preorders Sold Out

Valve announces that the hardware preorders they began accepting early this month are now all sold out, so if you were on the fence about being a guinea pig for this, you missed your window. This first round of hardware is expected to be released on October 16th, while the official launch date for Steam Machines, Steam Link, and Steam Controllers is November 10th. They are still accepting preorders for the November release on the Steam Hardware page.

I only grabbed a controller. Hoping it'll replace the xbox controller on my PC.

I picked up the controller and the Steam Link but only because I want to review the hardware for my site I don't really have particularly high expectations from the controller and I can already stream games to my TV through other methods from Steam.

I picked up a Steam Link to replace an old HTPC in the basement and a controller to fart around with.

Somehow I knew when I was staring at the pre-order link for the controller yesterday that i should have clicked it. Damn.

I don't know how anyone HTPC gaming could be less than super-excited for this thing... if I never touch another fucking xbox controller for the rest of my life I'll die happy.

I was tempted to order a controller, but that's it. Saving me munny for VR. I'll wait on the controller until the kinks are worked out.

The Link and controller are definitely interesting but a machine that runs a Linux OS won't have many games available.

I pre-ordered the link. I can't wait to try it out. It's also a good excuse to upgrade my router to 802.11ac.

Nothing like a "Sold Out" sign to make people not only want one, but admit to buying...

I don't think they are talking steam machines, steam isn't making the steam machines are they? Not surprised about the other, esp the controller, lots of people interested and willing to try.

mark my words, when this controller ships, we're going to see an 8000% increase in the incidents of "nintendo thumb"

I used to have one of these for my SNES growing up, it was advertised at being able to cure thumb fatigue... it didn't. It made it decidedly worse. Now there will be people used to pressing on buttons and joysticks for 20 years getting their hands on this. good luck retraining your thumbs to not need to add force. pressing on something that doesn't give will destroy your thumbs! mark my words! slick the doomsayer! the sky is falling!

Early adopters never win. Unless, of course, there is no superior v2 of the controller.
