Valve may stop with deliveries of Steam Link




Valve lets Steam know that in Europe no stock of Steam Link devices is available anymore from suppliers. Reportedly, the stock in the US is almost through. This may mean that the company is phasing out the physical Steam Link in favor of the mobile app.

Valve reports that it wants to continue supporting the existing Steam Link hardware, as well as the software versions of Steam Link for smartphones and televisions. The company refers in a message to the Steam Link app, which allows users to stream games from their PC to smartphones, tablets and TVs without using the Steam Link box.

The Steam Link app has been available for Android since May and makes it possible to stream games from a PC with Steam to mobile devices or, for example, an Nvidia Shield TV or certain televisions. The devices must be connected to the same network and the Wi-Fi network must be a 5GHz network. The Steam Controller is supported.

Valve also wanted to release the Steam Link app for iOS, but Apple blocked that . It seems that the app eventually gets green light from the company from Cupertino. Earlier, it turned out that Apple and Valve are working on a version that would comply with the rules of the App Store.

Valve’s box makes it possible, depending on the router used, to stream games from a PC to TVs without a noticeable delay, in 1080p resolution and with sixty frames per second. The Steam Link was regularly available for a few euros during offers on Steam, but is currently no longer available via the platform.
