Steam In-Home Streaming Beta Registration Opens

November 11, 2013 - GamePolitics Staff

Valve has opened up registration for the Steam In-home Streaming closed beta, which will begin within the next two months (before the end of 2013). Those interested in getting in on the closed beta can do so simply by joining the official Steam group. The beta will let users play PC games on other machines within their house.

"High-powered SteamOS living room machines are nice, and fun to play with, and will make many Steam customers happy, but there are a lot of other Steam customers who already have perfectly great gaming hardware at home in the form of a powerful PC," Valve's Greg Coomer explained during the announcement of the company's Steam Machines prototype.

"The prototype we're talking about here is not meant to replace that. Many of those users would like to have a way to bridge the gap into the living room without giving up their existing hardware and without spending lots of money. We think that's a great goal, and we're working on ways to use our in-home streaming technology to accomplish it - we'll talk more about that in the future."

So are they giving you a lower-powered steam box with this beta, or do you need to have your own second pc to test with, or what?

Re: Steam In-Home Streaming Beta Registration Opens

Yes, to do the streaming you do.  But I think even the steam box istelf can play a lot of games without having to stream them from a more powerful PC.
