RIP Steam Link: Valve’s streaming gadget has been discontinued

Both devices were designed with the goal of tackling PC gaming in the living room.

First released all the way back at the end of 2015, the Steam Link is a small internet-enabled streaming box created to bring basement-dwelling PC gaming all the way into the living room. This initiative included the SteamOS Linux distribution, Steam Machines running SteamOS, and then the Steam Link.

The company first introduced the small, black box in 2015 and offered PC players to stream their Steam games to a television wirelessly.

Of the three prongs of the Steam Universe initiative, the Steam Link was in turn easily the most successful.

Spain rocks the boat with demand for Brexit veto over Gibraltar
The minister said that Madrid wanted the deal to clarify that talks on future ties between London and the bloc would not apply to Gibraltar.

Valve has announced the discontinuation of the physical Steam Link device.

Valve also regularly slashed the Steam Link's cost far below its standard $50 (£39) price tag, practically giving it away during various sales and promotions.

If you'd still like to get the box, know that supply has nearly dried up.

However, it has pledged to continue supporting the Steam Link for those who already own one and want to continue using it in the future. Because of that, Valve seems to be ditching the hardware and moving over to mobile development exclusively.
