The thing about Steam Deck and why it has changed things up more than we realise. I have a 2000+ library ready to go on this. If/when we get a Steam Deck 2 then they library carries over automatically.
On top of the 2000 ish games I have on Steam I can also play the hundreds more I have collected over the years via Amazon, Epic, GOG and Itch.
Plus being open because it is a PC at the end of the day. I can even play the stuff companies like Nintendo no longer want me to play.
I'll say it again. The game has changed this year and Valve have played a blinder. They aren't doing this because they like me and want to be my friend. They know now is the time to strike and eat into the market share consoles have dominated the years now.
This is as big a seismic event as "$199" when Sony saw Thier opportunity.
It could be a lot of hyperbole from me, but I believe the Steam machines, link, controller, were all part of R&D to get to this point. With the Switch itself showing where the market wanted to go
