The d-pad and buttons don't look too comfortable, but it's somewhat similar to the Wii U Pro controller design so I don't mind it.

No plans on buying it although I want to try it (that perhaps would push me to purchasing one).

I just want to see performance numbers for certain titles. Curious where this stacks up power wise.

Got an email today that units will only start being made available for purchase in February 2022 instead of December (by order of initial reservation of course).

Hi all. Brand new to steam.
I have a question.
Q: a game I want is on Steam. It says windows is, can I play it on Steam Deck. Will I need an active internet connection to play it or can it be downloaded to the system and played offline?
The game is the original The Witcher.

I imagine offline mode should work on the Linux build of Steam (you download the games as you would if you play it on Windows through Steam). As for compatibility, out of the box using SteamOS and ProtonDB, you can use the Proton DB site as a general reference for whether the game will run properly on Steam Deck. Witcher 1 has a gold rating for compatibility so it should work fine.

Thanks. Just hoping that it runs on the SteamDeck without any issues.
I'm thinking of using it as a PS replacement.
I don't play too many games and want some older ones.

It'd be great if Heavy Metal F.A.K.K.2 was on Steam, but it doesn't seem to be.

We will break down the list of games into three sections: Verified games, playable games, and unsupported games. Verified games are exactly what they sound like: Games Valve has officially stated to work on Steam Deck with no issues. Playable games are ones players have tried out, and while they work, might have some bugs or small issues associated with them. Finally, unsupported games flat out dont work on the Steam Deck.

Valves Steam Deck is a cool handheld PC you probably dont wanna modify too much. However, if the creative juices start flowing and you feel the need to tinker with it, Valve user experience designer Lawrence Yang is at least advising against a mod that increases the literal size of the Decks SSD. The reason? Altering the m.2 2230 SSD will significantly shorten the devices lifespan.
