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".
