Valve Discontinues Steam Link Streaming Hardware

What just happened? It's the end of the road for Steam Link, another failed hardware initiative from Valve. Both devices were designed with the goal of tackling PC gaming in the living room. Instead, focus will be shifting to the Steam Link app, which is now available on Android and some Smart TVs. The Steam Link is completely sold out in Europe and is quickly approaching that status in the US.

Valve will no longer manufacture its game streaming hardware Steam Link. Even with the Steam Link box, the strength of Valve's play was in the software and integration, so like so many other discrete devices over the past decade, the streaming STB's functionality has been subsumed by other smart devices.

The Steam Link hardware is a small, unimposing box with an Ethernet port, an HDMI output, and a few USB ports.

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.

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. So while hardware production has wrapped up, Valve seems prepared to offer what little support is necessary for their most successful hardware product to date.
