      Because it's the first good UMPC. So good, in fact, it BTFOs everything else on the market. The Switch is a joke in comparison, basically 1.5 "console generations" behind in terms of performance. Chinese UMPCs are either significantly slower for the same price (Vega APUs), or only slightly faster for a significantly higher price (RDNA2 APUs).
      Also it promotes Linux (Microsoft is angry) and Steam (Epic is angry). Lastly, it's popular and this makes Ganker contrarians angry.

          People are still buying switches for $350. Steam deck is $399. It's not a big difference in price to choose between the two, and factor in the game prices and existing library.

          It really isn't. I haven't had many credit cards but I dont need to. I believe you can make a plan on any eligible purchase over 100$ plus you get rewards points and 1.5% cash back on all purchases. The points can be used on Amazon so if youre patient and save them you can use them and get stuff for free essentially off Amazon. You might also be able to use them if the card is linked to PayPal and pay for stuff on steam but don't quote me on that.

        I don't have a switch, but I run retroarch on my laptop.

        Being a decent price is one thing it does better than other umpcs and smart phones, tablets and laptops.

        It's price isn't in a vacuum though. Most people already have smart phones or laptops. Sure the Steam Deck is cheap, but most people that already need a laptop would rather just drop that $399 - $649 on that and get something that could play games better than the steam deck ever could.

        And having a way better form factor.

        I think the form factor is better than other UMPCs but is shit compared to most laptops, especially because unless the laptop looks like some kind of gaming abomination doesn't generally look like something you'd bing bing wahoo with.

          Okay. So? The price and form factor are what help it make up for not being a 3060 laptop in performance. It's good at being what it needs to be - a comfortable, deskless handheld device for pc gaming.

                You may have have to install proton-GE for your modern steam games, configuring their settings manually if you run into any issues.

                Lots of games are in the "unsupported" category, but usually they run fine with a few tweaks. Sometimes you won't need any tweaks at all. It really depends on the game and the developer.

                A lot of the yellow and untested games which are not verified on steam deck will run and work with no or very few simple ingame setting tweaks just like the green checkmark games.
                Though that being said, I think the Steam Deck when you're exploring non-green checkmark games is a PC gamer gaming device, not meant for drooling retards. It doesn't deliver the same experience as a console if you stray from the spoon feeding path.

                Without owning a steam deck my guess is just that 90% of games you're not playing natively but emulating them.
                So some things won't work quite as they should and anything online will be a bit tricky, for online games it should be used alongside your PC but most single player games will be fine.

                Not even a nintendie I still prefer the Deck over anything but it's still uncooked pasta and sometimes everything just fucking works and it's the best thing ever

          Nothing is plug and play but the green checkmark games, as

          A lot of the yellow and untested games which are not verified on steam deck will run and work with no or very few simple ingame setting tweaks just like the green checkmark games.
          Though that being said, I think the Steam Deck when you're exploring non-green checkmark games is a PC gamer gaming device, not meant for drooling retards. It doesn't deliver the same experience as a console if you stray from the spoon feeding path.

          said, a lot of games work even if they are unverified but often require switching to "desktop mode" and editing the wine configuration for that game. It's scriptkiddie-tier stuff, but doing it in 720p on a keyboard that sucks, on a DE not designed for touch, is cancer. It also restarts the device when you switch from desktop to gaming mode.

          99% of the issues with this console would be solved if it shipped with windows, or android x64, or any other linux distro.

            Windows is trash and it's only going to get worse. Android is completely batshit insane for a gaming system.

          You guys are literally fucking retards. The majority of my library, many listed unsupported, boot without even giving me a warning. I can count the games I haven't been able to boot on my two hands and I haven't used any external programs to boot anything

          Proton is a lot better than you retards think

      I'm 100% sure you don't even got a deck, you think the deck works like a regular pc.
      It has a few issues but none that you described

    What exactly makes tendies mad about Steam Deck? I have a switch since day 1, but it feels dated and weak. I never understood the deal behind emulation and piracy because I thought everyone and their mom did that until 3DS killed R4s and flash carts for a good while.

    most people are not autistic and don't want to play games outside their house.

      That’s why trolling steam deck enthusiasts is so fun.

    When something is released it usually kills the "hype", because people are now using it not getting hyped for it, retard
