Looks like Valve isn't making any more of it's Steam Linux streaming mini boxes you can use to play your PC games on your TV. It's currently marked down to $2.50 on Steam right now and it looks like when they sell out you won't be able to buy them any more. Valve continues to be committed to it's Steam Link Android App but hasn't been able to release it on the Apple app store after they initially submitted it due to a violation of the App store policy. Hopefully Valve can work out something with Apple because I've recently replaced my Steam Linux under my TV with my Wii U. I always thought the Steam Link was a cool device but now that Steam streaming comes installed on some TVs and Smartphones it makes sense that Valve won't be making more.

I'm happy to have mine, but this kinda makes sense. With Android TV devices getting kinda cheap, the barrier to entry is lower if they decide not to release a new revision down the line. It's great tech but it never seemed to take off.

Agreed. It was the better choice than a Steam Machine and it seemed to get it audience right away in the Steam users that wanted one.
