When Valve announced its Steam Machine living room hardware movement last year, the idea was that third-party manufacturers would be able to build their own Steam Machines, complete with the Linux-based SteamOS.

While we've only seen a couple of examples of companies who are working on Steam Machines up to now, Engadget now reports that it has access to a list of around a dozen companies who are working on Steam Machines.

Alienware, Falcon Northwest, iBuyPower, CyberPowerPC, Origin PC, Gigabyte, Materiel.net, Webhallen, Alternate, Next, Zotac and Scan Computers are the first companies building Steam Machines, says the report, and these partners are set to be announced in full later this week.

Of course, there may well be more companies working on Steam Machines outside of this list, or at least considering the idea. 2014 may prove to be the year our living rooms become a Steam Machine battleground.
