This is how the Steam Machine looks like [T-break Tech (Middle East)]

(T-break Tech (Middle East) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) As promised, Valve has shipped beta variants of its upcoming PC-console Steam Machine to selected participants over the past weekend. And as expected, there is an unboxing video of it.

Much like any console, the Steam Machine ships with the necessary cables, paper work, a single controller and the system itself. The package shipped in a wooden crate, which harkens back to one of Valve’s prolific shooter, so this obviously means Half Life 3 is confirmed.

You can see the unboxing video below (and pictures here).

The Steam Machines were sent to 300 beta participants, although Valve had to restrict their selection to US-only due regulatory concerns. However, those looking for their Steam Machine fix can download the SteamOS, which was made available last Friday. The SteamOS is the Linux-based operating system that will power the Steam Machines. But before you jump on it, know that there are strict system requirements to meet, such as having 4GB or more memory, a 64-bit processor, a 500GB HDD, and an NVIDIA graphics card (AMD and Intel chip support is coming soon). Also know that the SteamOS does not support dual-boot, so make sure you use a spare PC to try the operating system.

We will have more on the SteamOS later today.
