What a difference a year can make: at CES 2013, so-called “Steam Boxes” were gossiped about but not really seen. Now, at CES 2014, with Steam Machines fully announced, Valve has 14 third-party hardware partners on display, including Alienware and Falcon Northwest, according to The Verge. It seems like the only one missing is the prototype machine distributed late last year, a proof-of-concept that won’t make it to store shelves. The price tags on the consoles range from $499 to $6,000, and show off Valve’s vision of a diverse hardware system to support Steam.
