iBuyPower’s Steam Machine, which was showcased in a series of prototype images yesterday, has received some new details for pricing and specifications. According to The Verge, the third party living room PC will feature a multi-core AMD CPU, an AMD Radeon R9 270 GPU, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a 500 GB HDD. There will also be no power brick, with the console measuring larger than the PS4 and smaller than the Xbox One.

And how much will it run you in terms of cost? It will retail for $499 when it goes on sale in 2014 and will include Valve’s Steam Controller. As mentioned yesterday, the device will be available in two variants dubbed “Gordon” and “Freeman”. You can choose a console with an illuminated lightbar running along the edge or go for one that has a black lightbar and doesn’t light up.

    meh… Steam machines are just a Linux based PC with all the DRM baked into the system, and you can’t run any Windows applicaitons.

    This will fail, PC gamers will stick PCs and Console gamers will stick to consoles.

      meh steamOS is not an actual os that you can perfom tasks like a pc. You dont like low prices and digital distrubition, cool but dont call it drm.

      AAA developers are workign on games for steambox
