Valve has been confidently talking about the Steam Deck’s capabilities since announcing it a few weeks back. The device is apparently capable of running pretty much any PC game Valve has thrown at it during years of testing, consistently meets its minimum targets in terms of performance and resolution, and is supposed to be future proof as well- but we haven’t actually seen it in action so far. Well, until now, that is.
Several outlets recently went hands-on with Valve’s upcoming handheld gaming PC, and hands-on preview videos have been uploaded by quite a few that show us the device in action. The likes of The Verge, Giant Bomb, Linus Tech Tips, and Adam Savage’s Tested have posted such videos recently, which show gameplay for several games, including the likes of Control, DOOM Eternal, The Witcher 3, Hades, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, and more. It’s looking quite good, with not many significant sacrifices to speak of- check it out below.
The Steam Deck will launch in select regions of the world (with limited stocks, as you can imagine) in December. Stay tuned for more updates.
