    Really wanna pull the trigger on buying one but I already have a PS5, switch, PC with a 3060 Ti, and Miyoo Mini for light emulation. Someone please convince me that it’s worth

      You bought a PS5, you clearly don't value your money.

        Honestly ur not missing out on anything from not having a PS5, most current gen games are still cross gen and Demon's Soul is just a remaster of a PS3 game, and who’s really getting a PS5 to play Ratchet & fucking Clank?

      Reasons to own a Steam Deck:

      >play PC games, including but not limited to current existing Steam library
      >install any software, including but not limited to other game stores like Epic GOG and BattleDOTnet
      >install Windows OS
      >install Game Pass PC on Windows OS OR play via the cloud on native SteamOS
      >install PlayStation Plus on Windows OS
      >watch Netflix Crunchyroll or any service u want
      >optional mouse and keyboard
      >able to use any controller u want, including but not limited to PS4 DualShock, PS5 DualSense, Xbox controller, Switch Pro controller
      >through emulation, play Switch games (just don’t get caught)
      >through emulation, play games of PS1, PS2, PSP, PS3, PS Vita, NES, SNES, N64,GameCube, Wii, GB, GBC, GBA, NDS, 3DS, Xbox, X360, Sega Genesis, Dreamcast and pretty much nearly games from every single hardware that has ever existed

      The conclusion: the Steam Deck is the Infinity Gauntlet of gaming hardware and with it reality can be whatever u want

        It runs dying light, a game from 2015, at like 20 fps in docked mode at 1080p

          Thru wine and proton based compatibility tools, u can fix most games
          I currently got Red Dead 2 and Oddworld Soulstorm running perfectly when they previously weren’t, bet it’d be no different with Dying Light

          If it can play it just fine on high settings in handheld mode I doubt it's 20fps for docked 1080p. Tweak your settings

          you should know docked mode means nothing to the deck because the device is not artificially power limited like that.

        Everything you said… Agreed! I feel like grandpa here as I started with pong intellivision as a kid and ended with PS3 due to life! Mainly console gamer but in between apple II - MacBook gamer but was mainly the old apple days ending around Apple II G3.

        The steam deck lets me game as my daughter is now 5 so after she is asleep maybe an hour a night!!

        I also see it as a total stress reliever with work!

          It's a godsend for when you've kids. You don't get near the TV during the day and when it's the evening, you don't want to submit your partner to Deathloop or whatever for the few hours you do have to yourself. This way you get to game and chill out while she relaxes herself.

          To be fair, the Joycons are perhaps the filmiest and shittiest quality console controllers Nintendo have ever made. Those rubber toppers are only held on by through holes and come off surprisingly easy after normal use. It has nothing to do with throwing the console at the wall like a chimp, just the opposite since Nintendo stopped making their shit of Nintendium.

    Sure. It's overpriced and oversized turd whose competitors are running circles around. A free app on one's smartphone and a controller clip does a better job of being a steam deck than the actual steam deck for a fraction of the cost.

    The only value a steam deck has is the emulators, which surprise surprise other competitors have released far better options with them *actually being fucking portable*.

    Fuck the steam deck and fuck people who suck Gaben's dick.

        OP asked to talk about the steam, I replied. Don't be pissy because I see massive flaws in your product and want something else.

        that shit looks so fucking uncomfortable unless you're a kid which might be the case for you

        It's comfortable enough to hold.

        I have a Miyoo Mini and it's perfectly serviceable as long as you don't touch the shoulder buttons. They're essentially useless.
        I'll still use my Deck 99% of the time instead.
        Anyone pretending like these are in any way comparable devices is out of their fucking mind.

        It is a competing device for me. I only care about emulation. I don't give a fuck about any modern games.

        >destroying your eyes because "it's portable!"

        Yes.

    It's maybe the best video game purchase I've ever made. I feel immense joy every time I play it, and I'm always surprised by what it can do.
    I'm currently enjoying Arx Fatalis w/ the Libertatis mod. I thought it was a lost cause to get the mod working, but it turned out to be really easy. I'm also playing Simpson Hit & Run w/ mods and same story - feels like you can add anything as a non-steam game and slap proton compatibility on it and shit just works.
    I have 380 games designated verified & playable. Unless something comes along that my desktop can't run, I might not buy another piece of gaming hardware ever again.

      Same here. It even helped me cutting down on drinking as I'm now relaxing while playing instead of having a bottle of wine in the evening.

      I love my deck but I'm really disappointed with the quality of the buttons and the directional, they feel really cheap and are "squeaky"

      compatdata is linux bloat. It's the entire massive infrastructure that steamOS NEEDS to set up to play windows games. You aren't getting rid of it, unless you plan to play linux only games like a miserable cretin.

          joking aside, you can't get rid of it. You need it for your games to run. When you use proton, it doesn't just look at that GE 7.43 install you have and say "let's use that". It downloads it AGAIN, and puts it in a separate folder (for some reason, maybe it somehow needs to be utterly unique). So yeah, you can count that 61gb as your linux bloat.

          I got pissed off at it all in the end, and just bit the bullet and installed windows.

      61 gigabytes is really big, mines only 8 gigabytes. compatdata is just wineprefixes, along with everything a game needs to run like microsoft c++ redist, anticheat, and so on. it also holds game files like saves or whatever in a similar directory format as windows. you could probably delete the folder and steam will remake them. might just need to verify files after. backup saves and such inside first just in case, unless you are confident in steam cloud or its an online only game

    I'm kind of glad the deck flopped

  28. 3 weeks ago
    Anonymous

    I'm in the market for one of these and I want to explain my intended setup so I can get you guy's advice.
    I'm planning to buy the 64gb model and a 512gb A2 class microSD, on the microSD I will put roms and indieshit steam games (as that is 100% of what I play nowadays) but I also need to run an IDE, and SteamOS has a read-only filesystem, I could disable read-only but everything I install outside of the userspace will still get nuked everytime I update steamOS.
    So I'm going to buy a dock (not sure which) and a nvme SSD enclosure because I have a 1TB M.2 laying around (not a 2230, it doesn't fit in the steam deck).
    I will connect the nvme SSD and use the KDE partition manager to split it in two partitions, one will be ext4 as additional storage for the steam deck the other will be NTFS were I will install windows (not sure which version yet, recommendations will be appreciated). I will dual boot and install my IDE on the windows partition and other stuff like fusion360 and ltHispanice. I won't need to use windows If I'm not docked anyway.
    Now why I want to do it in this specific way: At the moment I'm without a desktop computer since I've given mine to my father (his shat the bed spectacularly right when he had a bunch of deadlines at work, the poor guy was freaking out). I don't really need a PC as powerful as the one I gave away right now, especially since I will be moving from the EU soon and I don't want to lug a mid-tower PC across international flights (I did it once and it's not fun). I've looked up prices for 2230s and they are kinda expensive new (more expensive than full size ones), looking at the used market instead I'm finding the best deals coming from China and I don't want to order from there as it will take months to reach me and I will get ass-raped by the customs tax to the point it will cost me as much as buying new.
    This way I can use the full size SSD that's just sitting around while I wait for a good deal on a 2230. Thanks.

      >I'm planning to buy the 64gb model and a 512gb A2 class microSD, on the microSD I will put roms and indieshit steam games
      kek no you're not. Because while your indieshit games might be 400mb each, the proton installs for those games will be a further 1.4gb EACH, and that's without going into shadercache folders which will likely end up being another 30gb on top of that

      best bet is just to get a 512gb unit with a 512gb or larger microsd, then just put windows on it. You really aren't missing anything at all from steamOS, and windows actually performs better now that the community have been working on it.

        I actually use mine with a dock kind of like this btw, but for the opposite use case. undocked, I use it as a PC, while I have a couple of HDs with games on plugged into the dock for when I am at home. I use it kind of like a laptop at work, and at home just dock it to the TV to play games from the external HDs. works just great for me

        I literally only play Slay the Spire and one other random indie shit game every month, the rest is just ROMs, I think the micro-sd will be fine for now, anyway I will have a partition on the 1TB SSD when docked.
        Not sure about buying the 512gb as it's still cheaper to buy a 64gb model and a 512gb ssd separately. And sometimes it's not much more money to go for a 1TB. I'm just a poorgay cheapskate and I think steam deck users hoover'd up all the good deals for 2230s in my country right now.
        Thanks for the link BTW, I'm assuming W11 is the best for the steam deck? I've heard it was made to work better on touchscreens like win8 was (never used either so I don't know).

        I have no idea how people managed to fill most of their system up with fucking shadercache, sure it gets LARGE and the size depends on the games you play but it's not nearly as bad as shitposters tries to make it out as being.

        With that said, the 64gig version is not worth the money IMO since this shitposter is right that unless you only play old/indie games on your Deck, you will run out of room pretty quickly (just like if you buy a lot of 3rd party games in the Switch) and Micro-SD cards are not cheap and are only getting more expensive thanks to COVID it's rampage in China, to the point where it might just be cheaper to upgrade your internal drive. So unless you want to open up your Deck yourself, it's better to just pick the middle option

          I have a m.2 SSD lying around but it's full size. I'm going to partition it and use one partition for a windows boot drive and the other for additional steam storage while its docked. All the good deals for 2230s got used up locally and I can only get a good price from china (and get assfucked by customs). I'm just going to wait around for a discount on storage while I use what I already have.

        That GitHub guide the other anon posted says it works fine if you use a specific version of windows for booting off external drives.

I don't want to build a PC because I don't look forward lugging it through international airports and customs in 7 months when I move. I've done it once and it's a pain in the ass.

                It's not an appeal to nature. I'm simply saying the resolution is more than enough for the game to play perfectly fine. As are the touchpads and other inputs the Steam Deck provides.
                Is it as good as playing on my 1440p screen with mouse and keyboard? No, but I'm willing to make that compromise to play wherever the fuck I want. That's literally the whole point of a handheld.

      I'm sure that there's a way. You could use a VPN to trick it into thinking you're based in the U.S., then use a middleman service of some kind where you send the Deck to them and then they ship it abroad to you for a small fee. BUT WHO AM I KIDDING, you're probably poor and can't even afford it even if they did ship it to you directly for $400 and you're just making excuses.

              It is thicker, the case is like three inches so you're not gonna slip it into a laptop/tablet pouch obviously but I've had no issue fitting it into my backpack.
              >is it particularly fragile
              Wouldn't say so. you do of course have the issue with analog sticks sticking out as with any handheld that has them but that's why it comes with a case.
              >any issues that might come up when traveling with it

                Yes. You aren't going to whip it out on the bus because practically it means opening your bag, taking out the carry case, opening the carry case, taking out the deck, turning it on and devoting two hands to it at all times. You will end up using your phone.
                >is it particularly fragile
                It's made of cheap plastic, and you can literally press in the screen. It seems fairly robust, mine hasn't broken and I have dropped it twice. You might get lucky with it.
                >any issues that might come up when traveling with it
                It will take up half a backpack, not counting accessories you might want.

                >You aren't going to whip it out on the bus

                I do nearly all of that though with my headphones though
                generally I can find and retain a single seat for most of the ride
                failing that, can it be held discretely enough when confined to a single seat (i.e. not elbowing the other passenger constantly)

                >that's a deal breaker
                In the interest of honesty, I actually sold my deck because of this, and got a cheap anbernic. I realised that on buses, trains and planes and shit I only wanted to play older games, so PSX and below suits me just fine, and these smaller devices are easy enough to fit in a pocket. So much better, at least for me.
                >can it be held discretely enough when confined to a single seat
                I also found that it couldn't be played while...squashed up next to someone. I'm not a huge guy, but have fairly broad shoulders, and it was JUST too big to be comfortable with. A shame. Without wanting to sound like a shill, if it was the size of the new chinese ones that are coming out like the PSP-looking one, it would be perfect. But it's not.

                At that point it's not only more expensive but hilariously more expensive. Also that thing drains the battery like a motherfucker at TDPs where it actually performs better than the Deck. At lower TDPs the Deck still wins out.

                >that would necessarily increase the size of the device, wouldn't it?
                I suppose. But without them it's hard to claim that the Loki is a smaller Deck. They're one of the standout features that really make it a portable PC, not just a console port/emulation machine.

                >capacitive sticks
                Convenient way to enable/disable gyro if you're into using sticks. Having to press a button do do that or leaving the gyro always on is just bad in comparison.

                No, it really doesn't now. That was when the processor was brand new. Now it's bedded in a little, optimizations have been made. The GPD win 4 has shown that it now surpasses the deck pretty handily at 10 TDP or above, while the better battery offers more life.
                > They're one of the standout features that really make it a portable PC, not just a console port/emulation machine.
                if you like. I mean, this seems like a wildly subjective thought to me, and honestly I am thinking now that you're just looking for reasons to praise the deck. Any game I can think of that needs trackpads is a game I will prefer to play docked anyway.
                >Convenient way to enable/disable gyro
                Eh, I disagree. I hate having gyro be "always on" like that. If I am playing a game, I have my thumbs resting on the sticks, no exceptions. I much prefer using R5 or L5 to enable it. Far more natural. Besides, I would much rather have the hall effect sensors than any of that shit, which the loki will have.

                Whether you need or want them is wildly subjective. But you didn't argue that. You called it a smaller Deck, which it simply isn't. It doesn't have feature parity. By that logic I could also call the Switch a smaller Deck.

                That's why I recommend resellers. If anything breaks, you go back to the reseller in your country for refunds, repairs, etc.

                Not sure what features you mean, but a lot of them would necessarily make the thing bigger, eg. touchpads.

                Why? You're not forced to use them you know. You're just arguing against more features even if they could be useful to other people and don't impact you at all. The touchpads I can understand, they make the device larger, but capacitive sticks don't do shit.

                Yeah, I am. And I would argue FOR other inclusions that others would see as useless. They're free to do so.

                because they're a large corporation who make the mainstay of their wealth from their digital storefront, and because they got a lot of the parts cheap from AMD due to the covid fire sale and repurposed them.

                I'm sure it was intended for general use, until the factories all closed down and they sat on a shelf. valve bought them all up cheap and repurposed them for the deck. Which is partly why they were able to make it so cheaply.

                all terrible ideas. For PS2/GC games, the obvious best bet is just to get a cheap phone, like the LG v60, and stick a controller on it. So much more performance and flexibility, and no need to give any money to the CCP

Yes u can also get an SD, got me a 1TB for 150, totaling my total money spent to like around 800 bucks. Best 800 I ever spent tho, no regrets, got all my Steam games but 2 running on it in the internal memory, my SD card is holding all my ROMS and I still have enough space to add even more. Didn’t spent a single dime since, u prob will be good for a while until that one next big upcoming title gets announced

    In terms of portable gaming, not so long ago, I remember my high hopes for the PS Vita but Sony never got behind it and it never reached its potential. Felt like a wasted opportunity. Then I got my Switch and it’s a lot of fun but the Nintendo-tax certainly takes its toll. The Steam Deck takes portable gaming and ramps things up with its versatility….emulation, Steam games, and streaming (Xcloud, consoles, etc). Feels like I’ve barely scratched the surface of stuff to do on it. I never thought I’d spend more time on it than my Series X, but it’s very close. Not just one of my best gaming purchases but one of my best entertainment purchases, period.

      Depends entirely on what games you play. You're going to be waiting a very long time if you're waiting to play the latest AAA shit for 2+ hours, but you can comfortably get 3-4 hours on most things, and for a lot of indies and some emulators I can easily get over 7 hours

        Don't expect major battery gains from the deck or other hardware in the near future short of making fuckhuge batteries, we've kinda hit a dead end with lithium ion.
        That being said, depending on the game you can get pretty good battery life, especially if you're able to lower wattage without impacting performance. If you're a AAA gamer then yeah, expect closer to 2 hours, but you actually can get pretty close to 8 under lighter loads.
        You could also slap a 10000mAh battery pack on the back, which will probably be good enough unless you're playing demanding games for more than 4-5hours per session

        Don't take this as being pedantic, but it's better to talk about/recommend batteries based on their watt hours rather than mAh. Watt hours gives you all the necessary information to know how long you can expect to run a device at any given voltage, whereas mAh requires you to figure out what the battery manufacturer's voltage is for that given mAh value

        I guess a good powerbank to carry around would be essential to have. I can live with that

        THERE HE IS

        I’m just spoiled by my NDS who had like 8 hours per charge for every game, and even the Switch Oled gets like 4-5 hours on every game now. I guess it’s the ARM architecture.

          It's literally just that Nintendo favors battery life by limiting performance. Valve could do the same thing if they wanted, but then most AAA games would barely run.

      Don't expect major battery gains from the deck or other hardware in the near future short of making fuckhuge batteries, we've kinda hit a dead end with lithium ion.
      That being said, depending on the game you can get pretty good battery life, especially if you're able to lower wattage without impacting performance. If you're a AAA gamer then yeah, expect closer to 2 hours, but you actually can get pretty close to 8 under lighter loads.

          But yes you're correct, but if you are shopping for battery packs you often have to dig through the specs sheet to actually find this information.

          it's the opposite, mAh gives you the amount of charge it holds while Wh requires you to know the voltage

            If I am told that a battery has 100 watt-hours of capacity, I can conclude that I may draw 50 watts for 2 hours, or 10 watts for 10 hours. If I'm told a batter has 10 amp-hours of capacity, all I can conclude is that I may draw 1 amp for 10 hours for example, which doesn't really tell me anything because that doesn't factor in the voltage that I might want to draw. I would have to find out what the manufacturer's voltage spec is for that battery in order to figure out how much time I can actually expect to get out of the battery for my device

    the deck is the perfect system for friends gathering. You put a catalog of pc and emulated console games, plug it to the tv with 4 generic controllers and are ready to go. Whatever they want to play you pirate it in a second. No more "oh shit i don't own that game", "o shit it's not on switch", "oh shit we don't have 4 controllers of the same kind". It made everything so fucking easier

    This is a ridiculously specific issue but hopefully someone can help. I'm trying to play AvP 2 on my Steam Deck and the game runs fine, but the mouse is completely busted. Setting the right joystick to the mouse works if you only push it very slightly, but move the stick more than a millimetre and it suddenly breaks and acts like it's trying to push in all directions at once at full force.
    And using the trackpad isn't much better, it's all jittery and not smooth at all.
    That's only in game though, it controls the mouse fine in the menus.

      It's not great as is. It's fine for old school emulation but for anything that needs some graphical chops/above 15ish W it drains pretty quick.

      I'd rather see next gen/iteration of the deck doing something with silicon reach slightly better performance at current power draw, and make incremental improvements to runtime/lower power draw for current performance/games.

      I think what we have now in terms of power is the minimum I'd personally accept.

      Wouldn’t be worth buying even with the reduced price and upped internal memory. For like 500 bucks not including tax u can get the base model and a 1TB card if u search and can get a good deal. Well aware I’d still be spending 200 extra but I’d still have my decent speakers and battery life and way well over 128GB

    I have a kind of very specific setup because I'm an autistic ass. My Dolphin installation is set to sync savestates and saves between Deck and PC through Syncthing. Now, I'm trying to setup PrimeHack so that it'll fetch saves and states from the main Dolphin folders instead of its own, so that I can have them in a single folder. For that I've made symlinks both on Windows and on the Deck. While on Windows this works perfectly, on the Deck it results on PrimeHack crashing as soon as I start Metroid Prime. Any advice on what I'm doing wrong?

        That's not my problem, the sync itself works and I want the saves on both devices anyway. what I'm having issues with is PrimeHack not recognizing the symlink, trying to recreate its own folders instead and crashing because they already exist (or at least this is what I think it's happening)
