Last July Valve Inc. revealed they were working on a powerful handheld called the Steam Deck — a PC clone that they claim can run virtually anything on the Steam platform. If you were one of the first to preorder the device, you might still be under the impression it will ship to you in one month. It won’t.
Who got up this morning thinking Steam was going to reveal its own Switch? I can’t say I saw it coming either, but here it is — the Steam Deck. It has a 7-inch screen that responds to touch (for titles where a mouse is unavoidable) and runs games at 720p. It will also be possible to play the games on television, with a higher resolution, through the official dock (which is sold separately, boooo).
