Should I get the Steam deck instead
I want the white model
It's brilliant !
How much is the steam deck and where can you get it from?
Steam Deck is a portable PC, not a console there will be compatibility issues and such. Devs are under no obligation to test their game on Steam Deck before releasing on Steam. Also, I think if you preorder one now you will probably have to wait several months to get it.
How much is the white one
With fee free card ?
I implore you to go check the current resale prices for the small number of Steam Decks available in the UK. You're looking at £1,000 over the Valve price for the 512GB model so in excess of £1,500.
If you join the Valve queue to buy directly from them now you will be in 'after Q3' and will probably have to wait until 2023 at the earliest.
Yeah, it also plays all the latest pc games and emulates every console ever made including the switch
Right, but it isn't plug and play by any means, you gotta start tinkering, especially if you wanna emulate anything recent. Switch emulation is far from great perfect even on a regular PC, let alone the Steam Deck. Over time it might get really good, but it ain't there yet. In the end, it depends on what you want out of it, personally I prefer collecting physical games so the Steam Deck I only use to play my Steam library which I otherwise wouldn't.
Yes I don't disagree with you on switch emulation, it will take time, but yuzu developers have a set specs to target emulation for at least which will help. I just think the deck is what a handheld should be, it's not locked down like the switch. I love that I will be able to play music on it, watch youtube, play films and browse the internet on it.
I also really don't get the bashing it takes on game tinkering either, it is pretty much a handheld console, no one complained about the switch having only a handful of games at launch because it had just came out and that was to be expected, the deck on the other hand has 1000 great on deck games on release and it gets bashed for a few glitches on some, I really don't understand that. Going forwards i'm sure developers will consider the deck when making games to try make it run as good as possible on it so it is a win, win for me to have the backwards compatability also.
I used to like Nintendo, but they've just been so lazy/greedy over the last 4-5 years in my opinion. Friend codes, no integrated voice chat, paying a fee to play multiplayer it's just so lazy. Deck has all that for free and mod support/game forums integrated into the OS.
Nintendo and Valve are not after the same audience. Valve is 100% centered on enthusiasts and current Steam users with the Deck. I think if you are not already invested on Steam, or looking for a great DIY (software wise) handheld, the Deck is not gonna do much for you, hence why it won't sell anywhere near as much as the Switch. Moreover Nintendo is a big software publisher. Valve rarely even creates any game these days. Thus they don't really care about their IP nearly as much. Nintendo relies a lot on Mario, Zelda, and other first party IP to succeed as a business, while Valve relies on Steam as a store, they could care less about TF and Dota, they are not even a drop in the bucket for their revenue.
I agree with you they are for different audiences, although I could see anyone new to handhelds and looking to buy one opting for a steam deck instead considering the extra functionality and the ability to play modern PC games and current gen console games which the switch simply cannot manage.
I think the deck will sell well, no where near switch sales, maybe a couple of million in total. I just think Nintendo has sold so many switches, at a profit too considering the hardware in it and yet there has been so few new Nintendo games made, most of the releases on the switch are from other developers or indie titles. The ones that are Nintendo IP's half are just old games or wii U ports being 'remaked' for the switch (you know cause they don't allow backwards compatibility with previous gen nintendo games).
I didn't mean to turn this into a Nintendo bashing discussion on a nintendo switch console deal,I just hope valve as a new player in the handheld market will hopefully make Nintendo step up a lot more, cause their effort recently has been poor.
Yeah, that's the thing, for Valve, a couple million sales is big, as this is just a complementary device for their Steam platform. For Nintendo such a number would be a disaster, as their entire platform user base is on the console. At the end of the day, there's a huge difference between a closed platform and an open one. Both have pros and cons. I don't see Steam Deck making a dent on Switch. Best case scenario would be to force Nintendo to deliver something with great specs for Switch 2.
It's trying to communicate, unsuccessfully.
circus the other way dude
Not totally true, it'll be fine, plus people are already running switch games and it's performing better
Still requires too much setup that most people are not willing to go through, entirely different stokes for different folks.
