Steam Deck: First Hands-On With Valve’s Handheld Gaming PC

We went to Valve's office to go hands-on with its new handheld gaming PC, the Steam Deck. IGN's own Bo Moore goes in-depth on how its controller feels, its desktop mode, its price and models, and a whole lot more.

The Steam Deck, is a handheld gaming PC with a form-factor similar to that of a Nintendo Switch. No hard release date has been given, but the Steam Deck has a launch planned for Holiday 2021, with a pre-order reservation system launching in the near future. The price starts at $399, with models that have more storage at $529 and $649 as well

    It's already an overhyped, overpriced backlog player. The next gen consoles just dropped and this handheld isn't going to handle upcoming games. Plus Valve's exclusives are basically just half-life.

      Raytracing is going to be slow on a 15w chip. Supporting and running well is two different things. I'm sure valve didn't highlight it for the same reason they didn't highlight VR support. The system isn't fast enough for an enjoyable experience.
