What would be a good gaming opportunity?

Is the Steam Deck a buy?
Hacked Vita?
or should i just take a console?

      OLED Deck is also available in other regions, except limited editions (unless it becomes really popular, so Valve will make them more, also in various versions.)

    I was in the same boat as you anon
    the deck is real nice for gaming, the original one is going to drop like a rock in price since the OLED is out soon and I recommend it personally

        Buying anything except the lowest end 64GB model+1TB SSD is a waste of money

        I wouldn't pay more than $300 truthfully for any LCD Steam Deck after the OLED releases.

        If you have a LCD deck bags you should dump them right now, while you still have a couple days left.

    The Steam Deck isn't portable, it's "portable". You take it out in places like bed after you're settled into a room. Try it on a plane or train and you'll bump elbows

    Retroid flip. Emulate the GBA and PSP. Done.

    Get a modded PSP 3000 and get the best games from vimms lair.
    The deck is nice but it sucks when you have friends or family when traveling, unless you plan to use it like a portable pc for important things a pc can only do like photography or drone recording backups

    I tend to swap back and forth with what I carry based on size and games.
    Traditional handhelds are by far the easiest to travel with but may be limiting because of their hackability/library or uncomfortable because of their size, deck is king in versatility but is fricking huge. Switch is kind of the perfect middle ground where you can play it handheld or table top with a traditional or just more comfortable controller.
    Personally my go to is the Switch followed by my psp (tons of great fan translations as of late) and neither have steered me wrong

    Don't get a Vita unless all you want is a modernized PSP. Most Vita games are trash and emulators are the same or worse than on the original PSP. the one good thing is its PSP mode once hacked.

    The deck is fricking huge and not really portable, but pretty good spec wise apart from the battery. Setting up emulators properly is a pain though because the only easy way to launch roms is by adding them as custom shortcuts, there is no easy file browser in non-desktop mode.

    Just pick the 64GB deck model.

    SteamOS +256GB MicroSD for modern games

    128GB MicroSD with Batocera/Retropie on It and a tons of retro games.
    Batocera has Switch emulation too, it's very good.

    You'll be fine

    Deck OLED releases on the 16th if you can wait and get your order in, and its 512GB will be decent out of the box.
    Hacked vita with freestore is nice too.
    The switch lite is right about the max I can fit in my pocket and has some exclusives.
    It depends all on what price, size, games you want.

    Go steam deck oled.
    It's not even close. The "alternatives" suffer from vastly unpolished hardware and missing software ecosystem.

    Kind of depends on what games you primarily play and your budget. I'd just get a good laptop if you can afford it. It's the most versatile option.

    If you really want a handheld, steam deck is the only decent option. My big complaints are the battery life (2-3 hours), the trackpads aren't great, the software needs polish, and it's also pretty big for a handheld. I can't imagine carrying it around unless you carry around a backpack anyway.

    Another option could be a nice tablet. You can get a Samsung S8 Ultra Tablet for like $600 and a keyboard cover for another $75. It works as kind of a hybrid laptop for basic tasks, good for watching movies, and solid battery life. There are various video game streaming services you can use to play games outside of emulation/android. Get a Bluetooth gaming controller if you want physical controls.

      The Odin 2 plays up to PS2 and Gamecube games, is smaller and has a huge battery life. It just doesn't play Windows games.

    Hacked vita, vita is the comfiest handheld, get a slim otherwise you have to deal with the meme proprietary connector, oled is nice but the proprietary charger kills it for me slim is better

    As long as there's no aggressive anti cheat DRM bull frickery baked into the game then the SD can run literally any game. Even recent Triple A ones that have been ripped and uploaded to piracy websites. Want to play a shitty mobile porn game like pic rel? SD can run that buttery smooth too.

    Steam Deck OLED just became the best handheld until like 2025 unless someone else makes a brand new console like nintendo, but even then the deck will still be the only console where you can play stalker and switch games on the go for free...

    ROG Ally lacks in software and hardware, no trackpads and gimped itself with 1080p on a 7 inch.

    Lenovo Legion GO is the closest thing to the steam deck competitor, but apparently the trackpad isn't that good neither is the gyro.
    You have the fps joystick mode but that's a gimmick compared to the comfyness of the steam deck trackpads.

    You could get a laptop like the Legion 5 1660ti/4600H with 144hz 100% SRGB. It's a fine used gaymin' laptop for 1080p if you can snag one for less than $600 on ebay, but you lose the portability factor and you can't play as easily in bed with handheld.

    Just buy the Steam Deck OLED, tbh famalam...
