My wife very kindly purchased a SteamDeck for me as a Christmas present, im curious to see how many members have one or maybe plan to get one in the future.

Currently playing Spiderman on mine and it blows my mind that a handheld can run a game like that as well as it does.

I fear if I buy every console available and never sell my old ones, eventually I'll be able to build a new house.

Is it similar to the switch?

It handles like a Switch (bigger and much more powerful), can add memory card to it just like the Switch however if you have a lot of games on Steam it allows you to play most of them on a handheld. It is also VERY customisable and even the creators have admitted to using emulation on it.

I did sell all of my consoles and although I do still own a Switch I very rarely use it, I solely game on PC these days but dont always have the time to sit on it for a duration of time so this had helped me fit in much more gaming lately.

Scott got one for his Xmas and he loves it. I'll need to bug him until he comes and talks about it here.

Would love to hear his thoughts, get him to check his FB messages while he’s at it. :LOL:

How could you sell them. they belong in a museum !!! the museum being my house xD

also, something I'll have to look into. but my computer being all fancy. I think I'll play the steam games on it for a little while longer.

Was a tough decision but I hadn’t touched my Xbox One or PS4 in ages and tended to use Gamepass on PC more. Needed the money and got a decent amount for them so I decided to go for it.

I have a decent gaming rig but just a matter of getting the time to sit on it and play. Much easier to turn on the SteamDeck sometimes and play a few games and have the cloud sync link up to my PC to carry on with. Helped me play much more single player games and fit in gaming sessions far more frequently.

Since getting the SteamDeck its steered the games I have been playing in another direction. I have been looking at games that are perfect for handheld gaming and recently been playing games like Graveyard Keeper, Command & Conquer Remastered & SteamWorld Heist. Also been looking into purchasing games like Core Keeper & Cult of the Lamb and have purchased SteamWorld Dig 2 and Terraria.
