Valve just announced Steam Deck their own addition to the handheld market. However, even though it’s a handheld console, you will be able to connect the Steam Deck to a larger screen. I wonder, where they could have gotten that idea from…
What is the Steam Deck?
But what is it really? Well, basically the Steam deck will act as a portable PC but with face buttons, analog sticks, back triggers, and bumpers just like a regular controller. The Steam Deck comes in three different prize classes, starting at $399, even though the specs are identical between the variants. The only difference is the internal memory. The $399 has 64 GB, the $529 has 256 GB and the $649 has 512 GB of memory. The Steam Deck launches in December this year.
