What do you think of Steam Machines?

Do you like what they have showed us on the Steam store or not and why? I personally think that this is not a bad idea but the execution is horrible. I’ve expected something like top 5 Steam machines to be released, ranging from mid to high-end PCs inside, instead we get  over 15 machines – really, really overpriced looking at their hardware specs, closed in nice boxes.

I understand this is for casual consumers but casual consumers have no idea which one to chose, it would be easier for them to pick a lets say “Medium Steam Machine”, “Ultra Steam Machine” etc. than this. Even a pretty decent notebook running Windows is easier to explain to an average consumer.

Right now they are ranging from $500 to $5000 which is a really fucked up price, most of those costing over $1000 on the Steam store can be bought for less than $700, even if you’re counting in the custom made, nice looking, small case. Now Steam Controller on the other hand, along with Steam Link and SteamVR might be really cool.

    Thanks to weak € and if your county asks for more than 8,5% VAT 1€ = $1 conversion would make it cheaper in €.

    These machines are too expensive. Maybe I’ll just buy a Steam Link instead. Looks cheap enough and my current PC is pretty good already. If that thing is gigabit ethernet then the streaming will be a cinch.
