A dozen PC builders and manufacturers, including Alienware and Falcon Northwest, have signed up to design third-party Steam Machines, according to a new report.

Engadget reports from CES 2014 that Alienware, Falcon Northwest, iBuyPower, CyberPowerPC, Origin PC, Gigabyte, Materiel.net, Webhallen, Alternate, Next, Zotac, and Scan Computers have all signed up to the Steam Machine project.

Custom PC builder iBuyPower revealed its version of the Steam Machine back in November. Two versions of the machine will be available, codenamed “Gorden” and “Freeman,” and both are due to go on sale later this year for $499 each.

Valve’s Steam controller and Steam Machine are due to release later this year. The company made its Linux-based OS available to download last month, alongside the launch of the Steam Machine beta, which saw 300 lucky people receive a Steam Machine prototype to test.
