While the steam deck can’t play every game on steam yet, it is still a brilliant handheld gaming device, thanks to its size and portability, you can enjoy playing games on the sofa, bed, or wherever the mood strikes, but Valve is going to do something with the steam device that it has never done before.
Valve Confirms The New Iteration of Steam Deck, Promises the Next-Gen Steam Deck Will be More Capable and Bring New Features
In preparation for the launch of the steam deck in Asia, Valve published a new e-book, introducing the Asian market to Valve, Steam, and the Steam Deck, also confirming the new iteration (Steam Deck 2.0 if you will) of the handheld gaming device, and promising that it will be more capable and open than the current one, which will be interesting to see, considering that the current generation Steam Deck is already one of the most open gaming platforms on the market.
This is a multi-generational product line. Valve will support Steam Deck and SteamOS well into the foreseeable future. We will learn from the Steam community about new uses for our hardware that we haven’t thought of yet, and we will build new versions to be even more open and capable than the first version of Steam Deck has been.Valve
“In the future, Valve will follow up on this product with improvements and iterations to hardware and software, bringing new versions of Steam Deck to market.” it reads.
After a long lone line of previous hardware products such as the Steam Controller, and Steam Link to name a few, this time Valve will do something it has not done before with any of its previous hardware, commit to release a next-gen of the same device, and according to Valve, the Steam Deck wouldn’t have happened without these previous products.
