Alienware, one of the premier PC manufacturers today, has announced when their Steam Machine will be available to buy, along with a vague price point for the mysterious new console.

While over a dozen companies are making Steam Machines for launch sometime in the near future, the Alienware device is the first to get a more solid release date. According to IGN, Alienware announced at the Valve's Dev Days summit that their Steam Machine will be available sometime in September. The release date was confirmed by Dell representatives.

In addition to announcing what month the Alienware Steam Machine will be available, the company also provided a vague price point for the console. While each Steam Machine will be priced differently, with some companies making their machines with a similar price point to the recently released PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, others will be over $1,000. Fortunately, it doesn't look like the Alienware console will cost thousands. Alienware stated that their Steam Machine will be priced competitively with next-gen consoles. This seems to indicate that the Alienware Steam Machine will be around $499, the same price as the Xbox One. This is also the price of other Steam Machines made by iBuyPower SBX and the CyberPowerPC Steam Machine.

No specs were released concerning the Alienware Steam Machine. It is a given that the console will run on Steam OS, the operating system made just for the Steam Machines. Considering Alienware's stellar reputation when it comes to designing high-powered PCs, the company's Steam Machine may be one of the best available when the consoles begin to launch. Valve is working closely with Alienware in designing the console, further indicating that the machine may be the one to watch out for in 2014.

Steam Machines were announced at the end of 2013, and while Valve is allowing different companies to make their own version of the console, Valve will not be making their own Steam Machine. Not many details are known about the announced Steam Machines, but gamers nonetheless are excited at the possibility of using Steam as part of a console experience rather than just as a PC platform.
