Wow, that’s looking pretty sleek. I like the paddles. It would be great if this supported Xcloud.
I really didn’t expect this. Can’t wait for people to get this and do some performance testing.
How are those specs? It’s been like 15 years since I last paid attention to that stuff.
It doesn’t look really comfortable to be honest. Also can you do the same stuff you can do on a PC, or is it just limited to running Steam ?
It seems to run STEAMOS. So take your library is relative. I wouldn’t expect MS games beyond streaming Xcloud through a browser if one’s available.
Shame. It says that it runs on some kind of Linux, I think. Would be very interested if I could access my Xbox library too, but I guess I don’t NEED another 500~ gaming device.
So this is a full handheld PC, not a streaming device? But games that run on Windows wouldn’t necessarily all run on this?
Via Proton, it may be possible.
Basically. But I found out there’s this thing called Steam Proton that converts Windows games to Linux? I’m not 100% sure. I’m not sure what MS will allow as well. Sea of Thieves works on it, Forza doesn’t easily.
The B button couldn’t be any closer to the edge lol…
Was not expecting this - I’ll be keeping an eye out! I don’t have a gaming PC at the moment (haven’t in years) but I do have a Steam library and have always wanted to get back into it. This may be an option for me, seeing as it can also be docked to a bigger display, to get into some casual PC gaming.
I’ll definitely be keeping my eye on it. Man it looks like the Game Gear…
Already sounds too complicated for me to bother with tbh. I’ll stick with my consoles.
And 64 GB of storage? So you can hold one AAA game at a time? I’m a little confused by this device if it wasn’t already obvious lol.
Could this also run Game Pass? Stream through browser?
wait so xcloud will work on steamdeck
Between this and xCloud… Yeah, I’m retiring the Switch lol.
There are 3 sizes. I just shared all of that above.
This is something I always wanted from Microsoft. But this looks very uncomfortable (looking at you B button) and I will wait for the second generation.
