Steam is ris­ing

Alien­ware Alpha

Australian T3 - - RADAR -

With Valve’s own “Steam Ma­chines” pushed back to 2015, this is the eas­i­est way to get PC games on your TV in a con­sole-like stylee. Alien­ware’s 64-bit, Core i3 Haswell box boasts an Xbox 360 con­troller – no of­fi­cial Valve one yet, ei­ther – and a mod­ded Win­dows 8.1 in place of Steam OS. A half mea­sure, then, but one you can own in time for Christ­mas. US $549, alien­ware.com, out de­cem­ber
