Valve officially pins down a Steam Machine launch date

Hayden Dingman | June 5, 2015
November 10, 2015: May it forever be known as "Steam Day"--the day Valve will officially unleash its suite of Steam Machines, Steam Link, SteamOS, and the Steam Controller. Sure, it's almost exactly a year later than anticipated, but...well, if you want one, this is when you can get one. Officially.

So yeah, November 10. That's the day we can finally stop speculating about how Steam Machines will be received and see for ourselves. Valve's certainly squandered most of its momentum heading into this launch. What was once a novel concept (living room PCs) is now business as usual for most OEMs, and Windows 10 seems to rectify most of the angst Valve was banking on against Windows 8. Crazy how much difference a year makes.

But live or die, Steam Machines are coming this fall. You can literally head to GameStop's website and preorder today. Congratulations, Valve — Steam Machines are now one modicum more real than the Phantom.
