A hardware accessories page popped up on Steam today, giving us a look at some of the types of things that will be available for purchase soon. These include accessories like a wireless receiver, carrying case, and multiple skins for the Steam Controller and Steam Link.
Four different skins are available for Steam Controllers. One of them is based on the Portal series, while the other three bear the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive logo on top of various designs. Additionally, there are three matching Counter-Strike skins for Steam Link, the PC-to-TV streaming device. Each skin currently costs $7 ($10 regularly). You can check them all out in the gallery below.
In addition to the skins, Steam also has pages up for a wireless receiver for $9 ($13), carrying case for $14 ($20), and battery door for $7 ($10). Steam Controllers are normally $50, but you can purchase one right now from Amazonfor $35.
The Steam store’s battery door has a spot where you can put a wireless receiver, but if you’d rather make one of your own, Valve has made that much easier. The company released the Steam Controller’s mechanical CAD geometry back in March, allowing people to more easily create and customize the controller with a 3D printer.
To make the Steam Controller, Valve created a robot assembly line with Aperture logos and all. It released a video of the assembly, and the process is surprisingly interesting.
