Custom PC UK  |  February 2016  

Steam Machines - The battleground between PCs and consoles is well established. PC enthusiasts cite cheaper games, better graphics and more versatility, while console fans reply with ease of use, living room comfort and cheaper devices. Valve promises to bridge that gap with Steam Machines, SteamOS and its new Steam Controller. The idea is that all this kit will bring PC gaming into the living room, but that strategy opens up Valve to competition from all angles. The PS4 and Xbox One are the current kings of the couch, and PC Windows has a much wider games catalogue than Linux too. In this issue, we spend some quality time living
with SteamOS, playing games on the new Steam Controller and trying out
two Steam Machines, to see if Valve can really carve a corner for itself in
the lounge.
