Excellent price - https://www.amazon.com/Steam-Link-Pc/dp/B016XBGWAQ

 

Steam are also having the sale, but since it's not available in NZ I think the cheapest way to get is through Amazon.

 

In their sale you can get the Steam Link and controller for $35, but I can't see that price available on Amazon.

Temptation to pickup one as a why not for the price..

 

 

 

Pretty sure they aren't suited for my gaming style, but ah well.. its cheap enough right?

Considering i normally play at 1ms 144hz and any perceivable lag beyond that drives me insane in a matter of seconds.... Picky i know ;)

Thanks - picked one up to try - and told my friends.

 

Works out at about NZ$45 delivered for the link alone - I believe the xbox controller will work with it :)

Everything works wired, IIRC, but for wireless, you gotta use the USB dongle for 360 pads, bluetooth for Xbox One pads, or VirtualHere and the Xbox One dongle, and Dualshock 3 and 4s work over bluetooth.

 

Super tempted to grab one myself, but I just can't quite justify it for the lounge.




Anything I say is the ramblings of an ill informed, opinionated so-and-so, and not representative of any of my past, present or future employers, and is also probably best disregarded.
