Handheld for playing Steam games. They will be selling a dock (separately!) so you can play on TV as well.

As someone who mostly plays games handheld, I'm kinda interested in this. The placement of the dpad and face buttons seems weird, though.

This is kind of a peculiar product. I mean, most PC gamers want to play games on their powerful gaming PCs. Even if this thing is much more powerful than the Switch, which I'm sure it is, there's no way it won't be a huge step down from a decent gaming PC. I can see it being great for indie-type games, but is it worth $400+ to play just those types of games on the go? Time will tell I suppose, but I'm guessing no.

I'm kinda surprised it took this long for somebody to copy the Switch.

"As for battery life, "It's about 2-8 hours, depending on what you're doing," he said. "You can play Portal 2 for four hours on this thing. If you limit it to 30 FPS, you're going to be playing for 5-6 hours." "

That's a deal breaker, man. Can't be doing that to gamers who'd like to play for prolonged periods.

How long does the Switch battery last? It's about the same right? I don't play ours much but I know on a few occasions I pretty much drained the battery in maybe 3 hours.

I think this is a cool idea although I'm put off a little by the price since I'm not a big portable guy. But to have such a large potential library available handheld is pretty awesome.

I don't get anywhere near 8 hours in handheld mode on Switch. Maybe if I lowered the brightness a lot and kept it in airplane mode I'd get 4-5 hours tops, or perhaps a little more if I was playing a little indie game that doesn't use much of the console's power.

I think it's reasonable to stop after 4+ hours to let your handheld charge...no?

It's a portable PC, there had to be some trade-offs. They couldn't make it any bigger and I think most PC gamers totally understand this and they have absolutely no problem with the battery life in this thing.


I want to get one at some point and I think I might just have to sell my Xbox series X because in my opinion this kind of makes it redundant. If I was still playing world of Warcraft this would have been like a definite pre-order for me is that the play world of Warcraft on the go would have been absolutely amazing. Like many I also have a pretty vast steam Library that I would like to play again and to be able to take advantage of steam sales this thing is absolutely amazing.

Agreed. The way Microsoft is doing their PC/Xbox games, is there any reason at all to own both a PC and an Xbox?

I'm kinda torn. On one hand I would love to play this at work. On the other hand, a lot of games these days require you to be online right when you start the game, and there is no wi-fi at my work. I might just end up getting a GPD Micro PC for all of my gog games. The steamdeck can play those too, but it is kind of big if I'm only going to play mouse heavy games and not controller style games.

This thing really is an Xbox killer. Xbox wanted to be pro consumer by putting all their exclusives on competing platforms and they done went and pro consumer'd themselves right out of the market because this makes Xbox irrelevant. It's a shame because I did like Xbox, but buying a Series X is straight up a waste of $500 now

MS should do what I have said they should have been doing for a few years now... exit the console business and make Gamepass available on everything. They would make MUCH MUCH more, get access to markets they never will otherwise. They are handcuffing themselves by sticking with hardware. They make good hardware, quality hardware but there approach is kind of antiquated. They try to push the most powerful hardware, yet time and time again Sony shows them that only plays a small part. Even Nintendo is proof that you don't need the to be the most powerful. Then you also have to question the splintered approach this gen with the Series S and X.

Microsoft may as well just be a publisher at this point. Phil Spencer turned Xbox around so far that it's running the opposite way of the other competitors. Hopefully when Xbox does inevitably exit the console market and just be a software developer/3rd party publisher, Valve can take their place and maybe actually develop games again

I don't think the size is an issue. People aren't actually putting their Switches in their pockets and walking around all day with it, are they? And if you're paying this much for one I'd expect at least a basic carrying case would be par for the course.

I love the idea of playing a bunch of old AND new PC games at work, on a handheld. But I fear many of the newer games will require online verification at time of game start. So that keeps me from getting excited about this. Plus, I think I'll stick to the 4K w/raytracing the PS5 and XSX will give me.

This DID get me thinking about playing my gog library at work though. And because of it I bought a GPD Micro PC. I might still be willing to give this a try when my 2nd quarter 2022 unit comes in. Should have no problem unloading it if I don't like it.

I think a lot of people are underestimating this thing. It's not gonna do numbers like the big 3 (it's not really setup for that considering you can't buy it in store) but it will sell really well and it's gonna be a huge success for Valve.

It'll sell like gangbusters. The question is, will they end up being bought by people who want it or will they all be sitting in a warehouse or some dirtbags closet waiting to be scalped

saying I can't see the benefit for me personally isn't underselling it. It's going to get more people into PC gaming, it will be a success no doubt. But it's just not for me. DRM online verification meaning very little offline play, no 4k next gen graphics, and no haptic feeback. (this is something I've appreciated a bit more lately).

Steam has this thing called "Offline Mode". Looks like it'll work on the Deck as well. And if you buy a DRM/Denuovo single player game that's on you. Obviously online only games won't work offline.

The system is a quality built piece of hardware, it seems anyway. I like that it's not just some POS Arm handheld with a crapty skin over a clunky version of Android. That's not a dig at Nintendo btw.

This system has so much going for it. I am going to touch on games first.

- This is one handheld made from a reputable game company that actually does not need exclusives to sell well. Like I mean at all. Not like a console. It's unbelievable to think how much pressure that takes off a company.

- Exclusives, yeah I know what I just said. The cool thing about this is while it does not need them it has them by the bucket load. There are tonnes of games that never made it over to console that can only be played on PC. Look at StarCraft 2, Supreme Commander 2.. oknthose are games I like but there are so many RTS games as an example that now bam you yah access to to play at home or in the road.

- the best way place to play many games. Now I know Blizzard is a pile a dig crap now but look at games like Diablo 2 RM and Diablo 4. The thought of playing those two on handheld without sacrificing who I play with is so appealing. For example, most of the people I play with Play on PC. If I wanted the freedom to play on the road and am stuck with playing on switch and I can't play with my PC buds. With a Steam deck I can have my cake and eat it to!!

- You will also basically have access to the best digital store out there. Steam sales, does not get much better then that!! Also GoG or Epic Game Store. Options, Options, Options.


The Steam Deck has the potential to be a beast! It's only limitation is Mr. Gabe.

There are still companies whose games do a check each time they start, EA for example. Basically I don't want to have to research every game I'm interested in like "Ok can I play this game at work? How about this game"? I like the steam deck, but I would probably use it for gen 9 and older.

I shouldn't have even implied you meant that. I think the Steam Deck looks cool. But the more I thought about where I'd be playing, and what games I'd be playing, I will probably just end up playing new games on my new consoles.

I still have mine pre-ordered and will try it out no doubt. If I run into enough games that I just can not play at work, then I'll sell it I guess. I won't get mine until Q2 so it's not going to be a hot item by then I don't think. So will probably end up selling a $529 item for -$400

I love the idea but unless Valve radically reworks Steam, out of the box functionality is going to be horrible on this thing.

The always online checks are bad enough (for example Persona 4 has an online check... why?) but here's the bigger problem- Steam doesn't allow you to play a game if it isn't fully updated. If Steam sees a game needs an update, that game becomes unplayable offline until you update. New games get updated all the time, so Deck even briefly connecting to the internet can break your games. Not ideal in a portable system.

Someone is going to hack the crap out of this thing though. I give it 3 months before it's the new piracy box

This is a publisher thing, not Steam. Just like EA games, and a lot of Bandai Namco single player games have Denuovo.

yup. Maybe it's because of the types of games GOG has, but I've never had that problem with them. But they don't have games like RE8 and Dirt Rally 2.0. And steam doesn't have many of the 90s point n click games gog has. But that's like the only issue with me, is offline access to games. Other than that the steam deck looks great to me. I could imagine myself playing Mortal Kombat 11 on my steam deck on my couch instead of sitting on my bed playing my XB1X.

Well because this got me so hyped for PC games away from home. I got a GPD Micro PC yesterday. And I'll give the steam deck a shot next year. I like this one a lot because instead of analog sticks and buttons it has a touchpad right on the front so I can play all those point n clicks in handheld mode easily! (I'm comparing it to previous GPDs I know steam deck has touchpads) .I'll save the FPS and more console style games for the Steam Deck. I hope I love both!

Wondering if anyone watched the Linus Tech Tips videos (WAN Show and the actual hands on with it) about the Steam Deck. It got me more hype, about it since they showcased versatility which was nice to see. Also per the WAN show seems the touchpads are likely not going to be what you use this for, which I take as meaning they don't feel great to use.

I watched that Linus 25 min video about 2 hours ago. Yeah it seems pretty solid. I'm still not sure I'd be up for dropping $400-600 on a portable system since I have the ability to play on my home devices more and WFH 100% so it's not a really viable option for me. But if I had to take public transit for 30+ mins per day, that would be a different story.

I've seen enough of the steam deck to pre-order it. I'll enjoy the Micro PC for the next year. It's gonna be a long wait til Q2 2022. This thing is pretty nice though and I can start to play most of my point n clicks on it now. Steam Deck will be fun for those games that are better on a controller. Newer stuff, but also old games like duke nukem, blood, kingpin life of crime, carmageddon 2, so much more. Yeah and point n clicks to since it has trackpads and a touchscreen. Hell, Might and magic might even be better just because the movement and various quick keys can be mapped to the buttons!

I'm definitely starting to think about and get excited about all the PC games I can play on the go. I never played a might and magic game, I own them on gog. Can't wait to play some of these classics!

I'm starting to see the divergence of games on steam and gog. Gog has a lot of the point n clicks that steam doesn't. But Gold Rush, a Sierra title from the King's Quest days is on Steam but not GOG for some reason. It's really weird. But I'm having fun digging!

I bought several more games on sale on gog yesterday since I'm playing my mini PC at work a lot now. I hope it's not too hard to merge steam and gog and play them on the steam deck when it comes out.

Yep within a day or so of release (or maybe before?) the tech bros on Youtube should have tutorials that should be pretty simple to follow. It won't be "Out of Box" GOG, but pretty easy. I'm planing on playing xbox gamepass on it too.

I'm no expert on the subject, but from what I've read on other forums is that Steam Deck's specs are not near enough to the minimum specs recommended for Yuzu (Switch emulator)
