      I’ll buy one if I see a later gen model for cheap second hand for emulation and trolling Ganker on the bog

      The deck isn’t actually what is important. What is important are the changes it will bring about for SteamOS. Once that’s ripe, bye, bye Windows. Forever. After while we’ll finally have flying cars and Dragon’s Dogma World on the moon. The great GabeN in the sky deems it so.

      How it will be works with more graphical demands titles like Cybershit?
      How it will be works with games which base mainly on keyboard and mouse?
      How about exclusives? It will have something which I cannot access on PC?
      How much I will need to fight with configuration of WINE on that (it will probably have a linux – Steam OS)
      How much it will be costs? I saw that this will be 450$, and don’t forget about worldwide lack of semiconductors, which can increase the price.

      Literally I don’t see a reason why I would need to buy that instead of good gaming laptop… and if I want to play mobile, I would play on my switch/buy tablet.

        >How it will be works with more graphical demands titles like Cybershit?
        according to promotional materials, yes. 30FPS on high settings. but its marketing material so they might be embelishing facts.
        >How it will be works with games which base mainly on keyboard and mouse?
        IIRC it has a touchscreen, and you could easily bind the keys to keyboard strokes. maybe make a buttom me a shift/ctrl/right click modifier.
        >How about exclusives? It will have something which I cannot access on PC?
        no. its a miniature PC running Linux. anything it can run will run on Linux
        >How much I will need to fight with configuration of WINE on that (it will probably have a linux – Steam OS)
        depends on game. check protondb website for details, but keep in mind there is a massive proton update scheduled to go with it so thing that dont work now or need tinkering might work better in the new version
        >How much it will be costs? I saw that this will be 450$, and don’t forget about worldwide lack of semiconductors, which can increase the price.
        $399 for the basic 64GB version
        $529 for the standard 256GB version
        $649 for the elite anti-glare screen 512GB version

        https://www.tomshardware.com/news/steam-deck-benchmarks-60-fps-gaming-experience-reasonable-eye-candy
        Deck can run Cyberpunk at high settings and hit 20-30fps. Obviously turning down a couple settings would boost frames.
        >How it will be works with games which base mainly on keyboard and mouse?
        Steam already has a solution to this with their extensive controller config options. You can rebind controls to anything you want. With the Steam Controller’s touch pads you have several different options for mouse emulation and it works very well.
        >How about exclusives? It will have something which I cannot access on PC?
        It literally is a PC.
        >How much I will need to fight with configuration of WINE on that
        Proton, not Wine.
        >How much it will be costs? I saw that this will be 450$, and don’t forget about worldwide lack of semiconductors, which can increase the price.
        You’re obviously just baiting now. Base model is $400. Top model is $650. The price isn’t changing.

        If you can’t grasp the concept that a UMPC is more ergonomic than a laptop then you’re too smooth brained to talk to.

        but its stronger than the switch and tablets. and the game library is massive since it runs PC games + any emulators which are avaliable on PC.

        Valve never tried to make gaming consoles. They tried to start an OEM branding label for prebuilt machines that came with Linux installed instead of Windows.
        It was a shitshow because no one took it seriously and their minimum hardware standards were incredibly low.

      Obscure games on Steam will not run on that. F.e. VN – i don’t know why japan is so retarded, but they still use a Media Player in a lot of VN to play a cutscenes – and wine/proton cannot run that (Marco and Galaxy Dragon). Also some games cannot handle a lot things on linux (f.e. Yuppie Psycho has a problems with horror VHS cutscenes). Touchpad is good but not for the all of games, I cannot imagine me playing an Ultrakill with touchpad. A lot will be depended of their launch – how games will be working on this handled.If it will get a bad start, I can imagine that this console will quickly be forgotten.

      And without exclusives, Idk, Nintendo also runs a lot of PC games and have his own and console is cheaper, so…

        SD card speeds supported by Deck are around 100MB/s of read and 30MB/s write compared to m.2 SSDs which typically get hundreds or thousands of MB/s transfer speeds

            I pinged the devs on twitter about it, but I’m pretty sure we won’t get it. Their game world is absolutely fantastic and if you idle the camera zooms in super close; and the texture work even then holds up quite well. It’s tragic that we won’t get a fps patch for it.

      The steam deck feels like it’s carrying the soul of the PSP by being the only handheld system with modern components in a nintendo dominated market. The PSP and Vita’s main attraction was being able to play console quality games on a handheld but they were mostly saddled with lesser spin-offs of their console counterparts of God of War and Uncharted. The Steam Deck actually lives up to that ambition by literally being a decently powerful PC crammed into a handheld form factor. The scalability of PC gaming will be this system’s biggest strength going into the future.

      I’m considering it but I don’t know much about it. The only console I own from the last 15 years is the ps vita and I don’t use my PC to play steam games either, I only emulate old games. There are a few jap PC games I’m interested in like code vein, nioh, atelier, and more importantly emulating various older games. I might also read some eroge if it’s comfortable to hold the console in one hand and my cock in the other.
      I can’t into linux so I don’t know how complicated it would be to set this up and get games running. Last I heard, linux had compatibility issues for games. Will a steam deck run whatever I want it to?

      I’m looking through https://www.protondb.com/
      and it’s concerning. Even the games listed as working often have some extra complicated adjustments that need to be made for every game, have frequent crashes, cutscenes don’t play, etc. so it sounds like the experience of playing it this way is going to be a lot worse.

        Proton is gonna be the biggest question mark here, and I don’t know whether I should be worried or happy about how confident Valve is about it now. As of the current moment, I don’t think that the experience will be as good as many are expecting, but Valve seems to just wipe it off with ”don’t worry, we have made massive improvements to it, it will just werk once you get it”.

        Super nice if they get it done, that would be the biggest single step forward for Linux gaming yet, but somehow I have hard time believing it yet.

          Chink leaks have shown that to be true

          EAC and Battleye confirmed they bent the knee
          That, plus the fact that they’ve been pretty reasonable when talking about it, without trying to overhype it or hide whatever shortcomings it has, makes me confident enough in Valve that if they say they got some souped up version of proton on a private repo somewhere that "just werks", well then, I believe they probably do.
          Also yeah what

          Pretty much every modern emulator has native Linux builds, so I’d bet anything below Seventh Generation (PS3, 360) emulation would be easy. PS3 and Switch might be possible if the Deck is powerful enough, and Wii U will probably only happen if the Cemu devs decide to do a Linux build

          Honestly, everything that has an emulator available right now should be fair game (except for PS3 most likely). I’ve seen some anons be skeptical about its ability to play Switch games, but after doing some extensive testing of Switch emulation on my quite frankly underpowered PC, and considering the speed and frequency at which Switch emulators keep getting better, I have a hard time believing it’ll have any trouble at all running them.
          I suppose I shouldn’t make any promises, but I think it’s fair to say Nintendo exclusives, which are all very well optimised, will run without any trouble at all, while more demanding 3rd party games already have native PC versions in 90% of cases. All in all a pretty good deal I’d say, in perspective.
