Following their big, fat interview with Gabe Newell, The Verge have followed up with some other tidbits that didn't make the initial direct cut, including speculation from Newell himself on the targeted price points of the Steam Box range.In the interview Newell spoke of there hopefully being three tiers of Steam Box devices - "Good, Better, and Best" - with Valve's own in-house hardware sitting alongside those from other manufacturers, as we've already seen from Xi3.
The Verge reported that "[Newell] says the goal for a "Good" platform is a free device, but that one would probably start around $99 and eventually come down. Newell says a midrange device should cost around $300, and that the top-tier is only limited by how much someone is willing to spend."
A mid-range Steam Box for $300? A basic Steam Box experience for under $100? That sounds pretty damn affordable for a brand, spanking, new console wouldn't you say?
