Valve’s portable console: Steam Deck will begin shipping this Christmas.
Steam Deck has undoubtedly been one of the most surprising announcements of the year. We are talking about the new portable console from Valve, responsible for Steam, a computer encapsulated in a format similar to Nintendo Switch and ready to play our favourite PC titles. With the console on its way to first users in December, Valve has answered the most frequently asked questions from users on its website, giving us some exciting details for those looking forward to the console.
Can you have multiple Steam accounts on the same console? Yes, and each will keep its own saved files and settings. Can non-Steam games be run with Proton? Indeed. And is it possible to use the Steam Deck as a PC controller? Sure, it can be connected without problems. These are some of the 20 questions that Valve answers in their Steam Deck FAQ, where they comment on topics such as the use of the console dock or its possibilities as an open platform.
Likewise, Valve clarifies that Steam Deck will not be compatible with external GPUs. Although, given the praise of the developers towards the console, it does not seem that you are going to have problems with its performance in games. Ah! And if you want to play your games without connecting to the internet, no problem: Steam Deck will allow you to play offline as we would on PC, without the need to connect online unless the game requires it.
These are some of the company’s questions in its Steam Deck FAQ, and you can consult them all from the official console page. With this machine dated for this Christmas, we remind you that next week the new Steam Next Fest will begin with hundreds of demos to try, so you don’t miss it.
