The document also states that Xbox chief Phil Spencer meets with Valve's Gabe Newell occasionally.

As if Phil didn't know anything about it before. This is good for Microsoft/Gamepass. Microsoft is going to want to Deck owners to jump on the Gamepass bandwagon. I am getting a Deck and I sure as hell would like Gamepass on it.

Reserved the 512 but the expected delivery date is Q3 2022 😂. If you're on the fence you may want to reserve one and cancel later if you change your mind.

Embrace the PS memes.

I am most likely not going to get this. Handheld is not my thing anymore since I stopped commuting in the subway to university. All my gaming time at home reserved for PC or the console these days.
lol. Handheld isn't my thing either, but it's Valve. I trust the Gaben.

LoU memes are hilarious.

This is something I’d be interested in. I’ve no time for PC gaming but there are quite a few awesome indie PC titles I’d love to play. This would suit me fine for that.

Looks uncomfortable.


I see this ending up in a similar situation to the Vita
The key difference being that the Vita was reliant on a specific game format. Even if they dropped specific support, you should still be able to update the OS and download games from Steam, assuming the hardware can handle the requirements.

Already got my pre-order on. Really looking forward to this. I don't even expect to run the highest end games, being more powerful than a switch as a handheld is more than enough in my book and I like my Nintendo Switch Lite as is. However, the lack of features/apps available on it is disappointing. Being able to play music/video files on the same handheld is gonna be fun on the bun.
