Rumor: Steam machines launching in March after GDC

It looks like the time of Steam machines may be officially upon us. Numerous outlets are reporting that sources tell them that Valve’s Steam machines will officially launch around GDC in March, just two months from now.

Multiple Steam machine makers have their units ready to go and are just waiting on Valve to get their units out into stores. The final design for the OS’s controller will be revealed soon and units should be expected in March or April.

Whether Valve has much success with Steam machines or not remains to be seen. At the very least, it introduces more competition into the PC and console gaming markets and should get some gamers more into PC games than they would if Valve wasn’t offering a streamlined way to play PC games.
