[Engadget] The Alienware Steam Machine: finally, a gaming PC for the living room

I laughed when the rumors started back in 2012: "Valve is building a PC-based game console for living rooms." Sure it is, I thought. Imagine my shock when "Steam Machines" turned out to be real. The project promised a bizarre, revolutionary controller, a Linux-based operating system designed specifically to play PC games and in-home game streaming for titles that required Windows to run properly. The proposal was unbelievable, but it's finally here; it's real; and it will ship to customers in early November. As of today, I have an Alienware Steam Machine nestled in my entertainment center that delivers on almost everything those original rumors promised. Let's talk about that

It'd be interesting to try one out and see how that controller feels. seems a tad expensive. however, it is good to have options!

Price and developer support going to be barriers here. Steam supports a lot of games in linux, but there are lots more than aren't supported. Fallout being one of them, and all of the COD and Battlefields too.

I want them to succeed, but they have one hell of an up hill climb to reach console parity.
