Valve quietly hides Steam Machine section from its game store after years of neglect
Valve has gone ahead and quietly hidden a link to its Steam Machines webpage from the Steam store itself, a move indicative of the ill-fated project to push a console-like transition for gaming PCs in the living room. The move, noticed by PC Gamer today, doesn’t mean Steam Machines can no longer be purchased. You can still find the live link here, and you can even purchase the recommended Alienware Alpha Steam Machine from Dell if so choose, as well as the Valve-designed SteamOS controller over on Amazon. But the “hardware” tab on Steam now only shows the Steam Controller, the HTC Vive headset, and Valve’s game streaming service Steam Link.

It’s clear Steam Machines are no longer a priority for Valve, which couldn’t overcome the product category’s nebulous target consumer. Those interested in PC gaming were always more keen on a desktop setup with a mouse and keyboard, not a console-like hybrid that plugged into a living room TV. And those not eager to use a desktop were more likely to spend time gaming in the living room using a PlayStation or Xbox console. That left Valve catering a niche audience that never really grew substantially enough to warrant putting more time and resources toward hardware and software design, despite some of the benefits provided by the Linux-based SteamOS.

The writing on the wall was pretty obvious when they were packing the hardware into game bundles like they were cereal box prizes.

Really enjoyed Elex. Post apocalyptic Risen/Gothic like. Very euro janky but still fun open world RPG.

Don't know if folks are aware of this, but Crusader Kings II is available for free today only on Steam. And it is yours to keep :D

I bought this at full price thinking I would certainly get a chance to play and finish it before any sale as good as this came along.
Oh, how naive I am.

When the DLC is 75% off or more, I will consider purchasing some of it.

At some point I want to pick this up. Because I'm hoping that some day they will finish porting it into the Skyrim engine. I never did get very far in Morrowind. And now I'm not sure I'd like some of the mechanics.

Yep, it's easy to start taking something or someone for granted, and it has been awhile since I've pointed out to Isgrim how much I appreciate his work bringing steam deals to my attention, so this is my +1.

To clarify he needs your account number, routing number, PIN and mother's maiden name.

I, on the other hand, do not thank Isg for his service. All it does is cost me money.
