Early Steam Deck impressions suggest it actually lives up to its potential

Valve won’t be shipping Steam Deck orders until Feb. 25. As such, most gamers won’t be able to get their hands on the system until March, at earliest. Of course, if you’re looking for early Steam Deck units, it helps to have a massively popular YouTube channel, as the LinusTechTips and Gamers Nexus discovered. Both of these influential hardware channels received the Steam Deck early, and based on their evaluations, prospective buyers should feel pretty good about their decision.

PC World summarized what the two reviewers discovered. Generally speaking, the Steam Deck accomplishes what it sets out to do. It’s a portable, handheld PC that can run most games at reasonable settings, without charging too much for the privilege. (The console starts at $399, and even the fanciest version is only $649. That’s not much, compared to a full gaming desktop, especially since the Steam Deck has a monitor built-in.)
