Steam Link on sale for $2.50?!
« on: July 02, 2018, 11:24:56 AM »
I'm gonna assume this is a result of lackluster sales, but during the currently running Summer Sale, the Steam Link is on sale for $2.50. That's 95% off! The Steam controller is also up for sale at 33% off, with a $33.49 pricetag. The skins for both devices are also steeply discounted, at $100 each. The one I wanted, the white Aperture skin for the controller, has been sold out already, though. :/
Never say never or always. In most cases, there is an exception to anything you can think of that you might use either word in. "Most likely" and "highly improbable" in a lot of those cases would ring true, but not never/always.

I wonder if they're going to release something new to replace them. It's not uncommon for products to go on sale before the new one gets dropped. That's what I'm hoping is happening, but I can see the latter happening too. The Steam controller is an odd one and even after getting used to it I still find myself using my other controllers more often these days.

The tediousness of paperwork makes my eyes burn and head hurt. Yet it is a necessary evil we all share. I like swords. Swords are simple. They aren't confusing or evil. Just straight forward implements of death. Have a nice day. ~GW

I bought both the Link and Controller a while back, and I don't really see much use out of either, myself. The controller can be dialed down to be better suited to gaming, but it's clunky trying to get used to trackpads where there used to be a D pad and a thumbstick. The Link, on the other hand, I have absolutely no use for, personally. All it is is basically a VNC client for claming. You can only use it on the same network your gaming rig is, and I personally don't use the living room tv much at all to warrant even plugging the thing in. That's not to say it isn't a useful piece of kit; a normal human would probably get a ton more usage out of it than I would, especially if they held Steam gaming groups in their home or (heavens forbid) they married another gamer.
