Quote:Earlier this month, Valve announced its "Get It Early" promotion, where customers could not only pre-order the Steam Controller and Steam Link, or the Alienware or Syber Steam Machines, but also have it by October 16, weeks before the actual release date of November 10. Unfortunately for those who have yet to pre-order the hardware, the number of devices available in October has sold out.
Valve didn't provide an actual number of pre-orders with the promotion, but considering that it took less than a month to sell out, the numbers should be impressive. If anything, this is a good sign for the company that the long-awaited hardware is still a sought-after product. (Unless of course Valve is playing a low-volume game here to create the illusion of demand.)[emphasis mine]
