If you haven’t yet invested in a Valve Steam Link wireless HDMI connection from your PC to your large screen TV, now might be the time to pick up one of the current generation Steam Link devices as Valve is quietly discontinuing the device. Although the application and support will continue to remain the Steam Link is already selling out around the world, and when it’s gone, it’s gone.
Valve design the Steam Link to provide PC users a way of playing games on their large screen TVs and uses HDMI connection together with either a wireless or ethernet connection to your computer running Steam to be the host and processing power for your desired games. Check out the original introductory video below to remind yourself. Valve explains on the Steam community forums :
“The supply of physical Steam Link hardware devices is sold out in Europe and almost sold out in the US. 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.
