If you tell it to exit big-picture mode you can minimise steam and use it as a thin-client to the desktop. It's not bad at that too. I have been playing with running non-steam games this way; it can be hit and miss because of video-modes and overlays. Origin can be problematic; but I think you need to disable origin's overlays.

Even companies who need special packaging and fast couriers like musclefood etc don't charge that kind of money and this is a small lightweight package. Ridiculous, I'm not ordering it now. I know the savings outweigh the postage but it's a d**k move from the company.





A little - but it seems they're shipping it from netherlands to the UK, lord knows why but that's how it is. £10 by courier from europe is pretty much the going rate.

Like most of these things, you just have to consider whether the overall price is one you want to pay or not. I mulled it over all night and decided that £37 for the package is still a price I'm (only just) willing to pay so I've ordered.
it is 7.40£ for just a link no controller but yeah product cost 4£ and shipping twice as much ...

yeah - I thought it was £7.40, I'm getting quoted a tenner too!

Having been a mouse and keyboard player since Quake 2 came out I tried playing FPS games on Xbox and couldn't get used to it at all. I got one of these a few weeks ago and played through borderlands twice and now onto borderlands 2. Sure I'd be better if I was sitting at my pc but I'm not able to do that so this still allows me to play.

I did hum and haw about it after reading reviews but ultimately you'll only know one way whether it works for you.

It certainly does take a little time, but if you're only a casual gamer, then I do agree, it's not worth it. (Those big circles on it are like little trackpads, by the way, so you get a lot of sensitive, precise analogue control, and the haptics provide feedback. There are also two "paddles" on the handles which work absolutely brilliantly - I miss them when I use my other pads!)

Err... did you quote the wrong person there? You're welcome to buy or not buy whatever you want. (Although if you buy through Amazon, then you can use it and then return it if you don't like it.)

That's got nothing to do with my corrections to your comments. Indeed, you still haven't shared with us why you "recommend" against it. You have four comments on this deal: one lie and three off-topics that effectively say nothing. Do you have something pertinent to share with us? Please try to make it true this time.

Cheaper than the current Game deal. Also controller and link available separately for £27.99 and £11.99.
how much would you pay for the steam link on its own?
Cold, rubbish deal. Steams rip off delivery charge kills it dead. Stupid having a high mandatory delivery charge like that (Steam is a online only operation so no collection option). The money Valve rake in every day, they could comfortably sell these at half the price of this and still offer free delivery!
Is there any stock available at GAME though?

It takes a while to get used to and unless you enjoy tweaking and customising things it will always be a pain to setup compared to an xbox controller which just works. I've seen people call it a marmite controller and that seems the most fitting description. If you get the hang of the gyro though it makes flick headshots so much more satisfying than a controller, at least I presume it is, I can't hit flick headshots with an analog stick unless the controller aim bot is doing it for me .



I guess it would have been nice of Valve to highlight this a bit better, I'd have stuck it out then. I heard the good control profiles are not official, that's a shame too, I'm happy to customise a bit but the out of the box experience should still be adequate

Also you can't grow to like marmite, otherwise I'd agree with the comparison!

I saw this post the same day that I was thinking about buying a Steam Controller and hold off due to the negative rating in the deal, ie, I thought it meant it was a bad deal and it was usually offered at a better price.

But after waiting for a month, it seems this was a pretty good deal for that item, never seen it near that price anymore. Oh well, one learns to not trust these ratings too much...

On a different note, does this controller has some kind of vibration feedback? eg, for racing games when there are crashes, bumps in the road, etc?

It's actually surprisingly decent in my opinion, I got one recently hence posting this deal... I think for the right game it's good, I use an Xbox One controller for other games like Forza Horizon 3 and Assassin's Creed Syndicate etc, I don't expect I'd have the same sort of feel using the Steam Controller for them but I got the Steam Controller with SWAT 4 on my laptop in mind and to be honest it's absolutely spot on!

Steam link's been posted (I can't imagine you missed that given it was 45 minutes before this post and is over 600° already) and since this isn't a bundle deal it'd make a lot more sense to just post the Steam Controller for £27.99.

Here you are bud.List of compatible controllers with Steam Link


Link ain't working. Here's one which does.
steam link Can I use just 2 Poweline Adaptors 1 into my pc ,1 into my steam link and still use WiFi Card on the PC?

Or do I need 3 powerline adaptors , 1 into pc , 1 into router , then 1 into steamlink.

Ideally my PC has a wifi card , so simply use that for internet and downloading etc...

But have a dedicated link from network card on my PC into a powerline adaptor then the 2nd adaptor upstairs plugged into my steam link....

Would this work ?

Will my PC happily work with a WIFI card plugged and a powerline connector plugged into the ethernet port via suitable cable or will I lose internet connection as the powerline connector based on using just 2 , will have no internet access ?

It's a nice controller for the price but the USB connection sucks, it keeps dropping. It works flawless when paired with an Android phone on bluetooth though.

I got one of these at Christmas when a similar deal was on. As a bit of a current gen PC noob, I found it a bit of a faff to get rid of the lag, pair various controllers and get the emulators running as I wanted. However, with a bit of patience and an hour or so of properly concentrating and reading guides online, I got it working.

Well worth persevering, but apart from the initial setup, it's not going to hold your hand, so just be aware of that.
This deal looks to have ended - £15.99 on site, £39.99 in basket
Make sure you have a robust network if you buy this, 802.11ac minimum I would recommend and ideally hard wire one side or even both to reduce latency. I bought one but ended up building a PC for the living room TV to game on.. a bit overkill but I wasn't fussed with upgrading my network.

I wouldn't buy this for Steam Link, IMHO. I found the buttons don't map the same as an Xbox controller... I'm sure there is a way to remap, but I couldn't be bothered to find out.

That said, the build quality is excellent, as is the size/shape/weight. I use mine with my Android tablet and phone, plus Windows 10, which is easier to remap the buttons.

i used flubit elite (30 day free trial) got this for £23.91 Delivered, my first quote was £25 then fired it through again and it was £24 odd and tried again and got the max 15% discount at £23.91 ok wont be here till over a week but that's the festive holidays, tried it with the link but it auto declines seems can't get the link for less than £16 ... i bought an xbox 360 wired controller too for £19.12 delivered

I know the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided post is already on here but I spotted they have a bundle with the Steam controller making it cheaper than buying the controller on its own.

They should pay you to use a steam controller not the other way round.


I agree, that would be excellent. Getting paid to use the best controller in existence would be sweet.

Cheers, I hadn't gotten that far so hadn't noticed, I have updated.


No problem. It's still a decent price if you're in the market for both. If you count Deus Ex at £13.19 then the controller is £31.39, which isn't too bad at all. They're selling on ebay for the best part of £60 oO

Comes to £44.58 including Steam's ridiculous postage charge.

Seems pretty good price to me given next cheapest seems to be near £40
"Steam Pre-Purchase Customers: For a limited time, the Steam Controller will be 40% off for customers that pre-purchased Civilization VI or Civilization VI Digital Deluxe through Steam"

So you have to buy the game at full price first, then you will get 40% off and can get Steam Controller for £23.99...
So any decent deal around for just the game?

As such the graphics will depend on how good your PC is (although it only goes up to 1080p, 60fps).Doesn't seem worth it to me, same with the steam controller but this is about as cheap this lot seems to get so no doubt someone will find it useful.

Some games need a big comfy sofa and huge TV to appreciate. Yes it is "only 1080p at 60fps" but since when was that a negative. I can even stream my emulators and Kodi through this. Stonking stuff if your pc is up to snuff. Have some heat.

Not as good as it appears, it throttles AAA games. Read review comment here:


PERFORMANCE & VISUAL QUALITY 

Now, we've hit a snag. Your games might be absolutely fine with Steam Link - but I've found that it does come down to the type of game you're playing. Why I've included performance and visual quality in the same category comes down to how certain games demand more from Steam Link and how it utterly fails to deliver when pushed to stream games that are AAA titles. There is obviously always a relationship between more taxing graphics and the performance you'll get from hardware. But how does this come into play when simply streaming your game to your TV? Why should that matter? 

What you'll find (and it seems to be a common problem) is that Steam Link will try to automatically downgrade the visual quality of these types of games to keep the performance fairly consistent. Your high end PC will be running the game at a steady 60FPS on your PC monitor but on your TV you'll see major dips in performance. That's unless you're willing to sacrifice both the resolution and the amount of data being transmitted through the ethernet cable into the Steam Link. 

So when I first played Rise of the Tomb Raider, I experienced a horrendous amount of artefacts (imagine you're playing the game via a 720p YouTube video). Following the advice and guidance of numerous forum posts and the advice of a Valve rep on Steam Link's forum on Steam, I was able to massively improve the visual quality but at a cost of the game's performance. A game my PC is able to run at 60FPS was suddenly barely able to reach 30FPS with dips down to 27FPS every few seconds, creating a stuttering effect when in motion/ playing. 

I had tried every combination of Steam/ Steam Link settings and advanced settings to try and improve the experience but in the end, to get the game to perform at a steady 45 FPS I had to disable a number of graphics settings and display the game at 720p. Which I could have done by purchasing the game for my PS4, saving myself all this hassle and frustration of trying to get this device to live up to what my PC is actually able to achieve. 

I've read similar anecdotes from users trying to play other hardware-taxing titles such as The Witcher 3 and so on, who must either suffer a terrible visual presentation or achieve what their PC is able to display but sacrifice performance massively until the game is almost unplayable.

IS THERE A FIX/ PLANS TO IMPROVE THIS? 

Not that I can find. You can follow the steps I have taken, take hours to try different combinations of auto-adjusting resolutions or not, allow hardware encoding or disallow, limit bandwidth and so on. Or you can buy a HDMI cable and save yourself the hassle. 

IS STEAM LINK FOR ME? 

If you enjoy titles that either don't demand much from your hardware or don't intend on offering state of the art visuals - you'll probably do just fine with this device and there's certainly a lot to appreciate about the little box. But this will absolutely not rival the experiences offered by consoles. Yes they may not achieve resolutions/ speeds that your PC can do with its hands tied behind its back, but they also do not have strange visual artefacts or consistent FPS drops. You won't have to spend hours trying to fine tune the settings to suit each game you're intending to play. 


I will conclude with this: I plan on selling Steam Link.
