Pricing and release date for the Steam Controller and Steam Link revealed

The Steam Controller is set to be US$49.99 and will hit stores (alongside the Steam Link) on November 10.

In case you've forgotten, the idea behind a Steam Machine is to bring PC gaming to the living room, where it can be played with a console. To that effect, Valve created a totally new open source, Linux based OS called Steam OS to be used with Steam Machines. Valve also created two additional pieces of hardware to complement the Steam Machines, the Steam Controller and the Steam Link.

We talked about the initial Steam Controller previously, but it has since evolved into the final version you see in the header image above. The Steam Controller will be sold for $49.99 and go on sale on November 10.

Here's a look at the controller in action.

You can read up more about the Steam Controller on the Steam Controller Steam page.

The Steam Link will also be on store shelves the same the day the Steam Controller hits.

The Steam Link is a gadget that allows you to stream your games to any display. Steam Links hooks up to your home network, and then automatically finds a computer that's running Steam and then streams the image to whatever display it's hooked up to. If you already have a gaming rig, aren't interested in a Steam Machine but want to game via streaming, the Steam Link might be just the thing you're looking for.

Like the Steam Controller, the Steam Link will go on sale on November 10, at US$49.99. Here's the product page on Steam if you're interested.

There's no news on when (or if) the Steam Controller or Steam Link will go on sale locally.
