These companies will be selling Valve's upcoming Steam Machines, Steam Controller and Steam Link streaming device. In the US and UK, there will be dedicated "Steam Sections" where gamers can get their hands on PC gaming hardware, like the Steam Controller and Steam Machines, as well as some pre-paid Steam cards.

Valve co-founder, Gabe Newell explains: "Creating a 'store within a store' across North America and the UK is a significant win for getting the first generation of Steam Hardware products into gamers' hands".

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
