The first wave of pre-orders for the upcoming Steam Hardware has all been sold out, Valve has announced.

Pre-orders were opened up earlier this month for the Alienware Steam Machines, Steam Link, and Steam Controllers, with the added incentive of receiving your purchase a whole month early. Those who decided to wait before becoming an early buyer will now have to wait further.

According to Valve, those who managed to successfully take advantage of the first wave of pre-orders will receive their hardware on October 16. From here on, anything you purchase following a replenishing of stock, will be sent to you on November 10.

Steam Machines are focused on a smaller factor design for living rooms, but with the potential power of a gaming PC. The systems are going to be running SteamOS and will come with a Steam Controller.

Alienware is not alone, and many third-party manufacturers have their own versions of Steam Machines. You can also see what ASUS and iBuyPower are offering. The concept was to provide a price close to that of a console’s but with the processing power of a PC. Some manufacturers, though, missed reading this memo.

Steam Link is Valve’s new toy that allows users to stream their games from a PC to TV in a different room. It requires you to have your own gaming rig and costs only $50. On that note, the Steam Controller costs $50 as well.

You can check this official page for more details on either of the products.
