It’s just been discovered that Valve has quietly discontinued Steam Link hardware. The last supply has just sold out in Europe and its almost gone in the US. It’s likely that this is due to the lack of sales, even when the Steam Link is going for as little as $2.50. All that’s really happening is you won’t be able to pick a new one up, because once this last supply is gone, it’s gone. Support will still be going strong, and the Steam Link mobile app on phones and TVs will remain available.
On the product page for the Steam Link, there is this message: “The supply of physical Steam Link hardware devices is almost sold out. Moving forward, Valve intends to continue supporting the existing Steam Link hardware as well as distribution of the software versions of Steam Link, available for many leading smart phones, tablets and televisions.”
For anyone who would still like to play games from your computer to a TV, in-home streaming will still work just fine — it just won’t be as stable as a good ol’ Steam Link connection. As you’re reading this, there’s a chance that there is some stock left of the Steam Link remaining, so pick it up while you still can if you’re interested. Are you disappointed by this news? What did you think of the Steam Link? Let us know in the comments below.
