Valve has revealed the final Steam Deck packaging ahead of the handheld’s launch in February 2022.
I had to refund my pre order. Couldn't justify spending the money with the current budget I'm on. My family felt it was a waste of resources when I already have a gaming PC. They weren't wrong. I can read a book on my Kindle instead of handheld gaming when on trips.
I am in the same boat. I would never have time to use it as intended. Just going to wait a few years and put it toward a new pc; mine isn't going to be below minimum spec until the require a nvme ssd.
I already have a nvme but it's 3.0 pcie instead of 4 so we will see how long it stays relavent
Don't feel bad, I also cancel my pre-order, I'm buying a house right now and I can't waste money having a nice gaming rig with a RTX 3070Ti (MSRP price).
Congrats on your new pad.
Bro that's insane, I searched the universe and couldn't find who asked
@13sentinel Did he trigger you with something he said? @QSPR congrats on the new home. It's good to keep our life priorities in check, although we'll always leave room for games.
Are we really downvoting this dude getting a place of his own? The Steam deck is also my last big gaming purchase, I'm tried of renting an apartment and now I want a house of my own. So I'm cutting back on buying games at least new releases and comics. In the long run it'll be worth it.
Very nice on the house. The Steam Deck will always be there when you decide on the right time to buy it
Yup just bought a house that needs a bit of work. All my money is going to that .
Did your wife stand over your shoulder as you typed this?
lol. nah, I'm the man in the house!! (shhh she's not here)
Truth. It's a big want but definitely not a need :/
Greatest handheld of all time
My body is ready.
Only games it cannot play is Nintendo...
Emulators have solved this issue.
How about ways not potentially getting me in legal trouble
It likely can play them better than the Switch itself...
You can play all ps5 games with it ?
Of course you can. Absolutely!
All 3 of them?
Whatevers on Playstation Now. Right now it is pretty limited
You're not going to get into legal trouble for using an emulator. Use a VPN to get the pirate copy and you're good. If you feel morally guilty then buy the game after you download it.
Bummer they had to delay it. Gives me time to ready the funds for it at least. The holidays have killed my wallet
Looks like a box of hot chips.
