Deck is released and being shipped for Q1 niggers. >Reservations now pushed to Q3. Moving out very slow. >Windows drivers are functional but not good for performance. >Xbox game pass and shit is now available (M$ being the first to put this surprising) >No word on dock (its just a usb hub that acts as a stand) >Battery life is realistically 1.5 - 6 hrs.

>>558628 no you're mistaken. its not $2500 for the steamdeck. Its $2500 for the "confirmed order" of steamdeck, meaning he's selling you the reservation of the product, which he doesn't have yet.
>>558632 That's even more fucked up.

>>558576 If we're going to have future threads of this sort, can they get renamed "UMPC generals" to futureproof them and remove the stench of brandfaggotry? I think the real potential of the Deck, as much as it's the 720p60FPS handheld computer I wasted two years of my life trying to prototype, is to create a new market sector specifically catered to /v/ anons. Yes, the chinks already paved the way, but fuck chinks. What's I'm interested in is if the manufacturers like ASUS and MSI wise up and start creating their own private label versions with SteamOS 3.0 installed. Instead of wasting resources on shilling Shitdows license keys and RGB keyboards they can actually sell their gaming laptop boards in form factors people would actually want to buy. Piratefags can essentially roam around and pirate everything under the goddamn sun with those devices. If you own any business you can technically write these off on your taxes and fuck your country's tax accountants over. You can even use them for legitimate work as well. Not to mention this class of devices can potentially save gaming. No, I'm serious. If we assume that hardware development follows a power law, then we're wasting resources on trying to push games out at ridiculous and unnecessary resolutions and filesizes. Ever wonder why most of /v/ concludes that gaming started to rot at the 6th console generation and normalfags conclude the 7th was the last good era? Resolution has a large part in that. The conclusion I drew is that 720p is a perfect sweet spot in balancing graphical fidelity and resources expended and invested, and 60fps for performance. Any improvements come in, we reinvest them into other areas like AI and physics like /v/ has desired for many years instead of gayphics. There's a reason that the GTX 1050 and Radeon HD 7950 SKUs were able to persist so long in running current games, because once fixed at 720p they can run most games fine. If devs had to optimize their games to run at 720p, they would be able to put out and polish content faster than if they had to fulfill a stupid 4K quota. With the rise of cross-platform games the Steam Deck and similar devices are poised to represent the next paradigm change in hardware and software development: "scalable gaming."

Fuck making a separate thread for similar devices, this now is a "portable PC/emulation stations" thread. Thoughts on the AYN Odin? It's an Android handheld with a Snapdragon 845 that seems to be able to run emulated games up to the PS2, Wii and 3DS. There are lots of videos of people reviewing the device and testing different emulators, but the handheld's official page still redirect to the IndieGogo page of the project, so I don't know if it's possible to buy one of these things yet. >>558604 >Don't we already have a thread? Yep, but Mark likes to make Steamy Dick threads. >>558920 This isn't the financial world. You can't sell things you don't have here.
>>558604 >>559065 other threads are anchored. The battery life is in line for these kinds of handhelds. Having bigger capacity battery is the only way to extract more life off this. >>558920 I seriously doubt anyone is buying them from ebay, just bidding to keep the value high for illusion
Valve Suspends Payments to Developers in Ukraine and Russia https://archive.ph/lXI5u I can respect Valve's neutral stance and lack of a desire to punish random civilians who have fuck all to do with the current war in Eastern Europe as I'm not pro Putin or pro Zelenskyy.

>>559183 >Valve suspends both Ukraine and Russia They didn't do it, they can't sent money to those countries due to the bank sanctions. Some Ukrainian devs report still being able to be paid if they use PayPal instead
Unrelated but I wonder if there's some madman out there who's figured out how to get Nintendo Switch Joycons to work in Steam. >>559183 >Somehow I feel its more retarded than neutral. Retarded yes, I'm not sure what makes all these Western companies think that taking away peoples bread and circuses will somehow effect the war effort in favor of the Ukrainians when in reality it does fuck all and is more likely to encourage piracy. >And how are ukraine devs supposed to get money if their country is invaded? Russian can walk into a bank and take all their money so you're effectively giving them money? Hence why Valve encourages Holol, Belarusian, and Russo devs to open foreign bank accounts. Ukrainians will likely just do their banking in Poland, Slovakia, or even in Switzerland if they're willing to hike there and Russians could always just sail across the Caspian and go to Turkmenistan for their banking needs. Belarusian devs are kinda fucked though as there's nothing geographically convenient for them to just walk/sail across the border to as Poland doesn't count since their dictator keeps trying to flood the Pols with African and Arab refugee's and migrants for some reason of which Poland's response isn't exactly like that of Germany's and Lithuania likely is paranoid about them to especially now. Valve wants to pay them for their work. I mean say what you will about Erdogan, I don't exactly like the dude but at least when he threatens to weaponize the Syrian refugee's he's stuck with he does so to scare the EU into giving him money so his country isn't financially bleeding itself sheltering them as a result of America, Israel, and Saudi Arabia fucking around in there. Not his fault Turkey is the cross road between Europe and the Middle East after all so I don't really blame him as I'd do the same if I was in his shoes. How the fuck did Belarus end up with dozens of Africans anyway? That doesn't make any geographical sense at all.

Once the dock accessory is released, I'm hoping that there's enough success for an updated Steam controller to go with the Deck. I like most of the Deck's button layout, and I want to see it on a gamepad.
>>559356 Agreed, NerdNest has been doing some great videos about what you can do with action layers with the Steam Deck's controls, and would love to see it carried over into a new Steam Controller.
>>559306 anon why do you have turn every thread into being about how many cocks you can fit inside your mouth?
>>559361 >action layers >built-in radial menu Looks neat for fine-tuning more settings, even if it takes some tweaking. Would the amount of input options be enough to use it for most PC games that rely on the keyboard/mouse?
>>559450 I don't see why not unless it somehow uses every single button on a keyboard, and Steam doesn't have Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing.
>>558576 personally I think this is gonna turn in to Ouya 2.0 and I have no intention of buying one. Still, I hope it succeeds for no other reason than it will weaken M$ gripe on the desktop gaming market. That being said the asking price is retarded, I could get a much better gaming laptop or a full atx gaming desktop for that price.
>>559878 There is no $400 gaming laptop with a comparable GPU.
>>559452 Why did Mavis Beacon become such a well known typing game?
>>559883 >Why did Mavis Beacon become such a well known typing game? I dunno about other anons but that's what my old high school used to teach me to type correctly. >>559452 Maybe Valve or a third party will release a detachable keyboard similar to what the Microsoft surface or Panasonic tough book uses.
>>559878 >Personally I think this is gonna turn in to Ouya 2.0 That comparison doesn't make sense to me. The Ouya was a failure because ultimately you were paying for a console that's only software was mobile phone games. The is no reason to buy that when the only reason people even play mobile games to begin with is simply because it's something to do with their phone when their bored and don't have many options. The only way for the Deck to be in a similar situation is if developers needed to make software for the Deck specifically, but the entire point of the Deck and Valves use of Proton is supposed to be that developers don't actually need to do anything for their game to be playable on Deck. The Deck is just supposed to be another way of accessing Steam's already existing catalog of games. >I could get a much better gaming laptop or gaming desktop One of the main selling points of the thing is the Handheld form factor, it's not really competing with laptops.
(32.92 KB 625x626 936.jpg)

>>559878 >thinking this is even remotely comparable to the OUYA
>>559882 There's also no gaming laptop without a physical keyboard, a screen smaller than 10 inches, and running on a resolution of 800p either, let alone the single USB-C port not to mention using the $400 price point is disingenuous since everyone's buying the $650 model, but that's what I'd expect a steamdrone to do anyways
>>559883 Because, ironically, the game features a niggeress as the "teacher" for both English literacy and computer usage, which was something completely different back in the 80's and 90's.
>wow its almost like its not a laptop and is actually a separate thing >>559041 >720p60FPS handheld computer I wasted two years of my life trying to prototype were you using raspberry pi?
>>559903 My post wasn't even an argument for the steam dick. I don't give a fuck about the device, but it's just flat out wrong to state that you can get a better laptop for the same price as that anon did. You would be much better off just buying a laptop instead for most people. But as of today there isn't any RDNA 2 laptop in that price bracket. There probably will be by the time most peoples steam dick orders are available though. Develop your reading comprehension sperg.
>>559878 >I could get a much better gaming laptop or a full atx gaming desktop for that price Tell me where I can get a gaymer PC/laptop for $400 and I'll buy it.
>>559925 >Tell me where I can get a gaymer PC/laptop for $400 Best Buy, Amazon, Office Depot...ANY place that sells computers!
>The Steam Deck when docked will not have an increase in performance. Because Valve decided to for consistent performance across the board. Why
>>559943 Because it's not a Nintendo Switch. All the complaints about a short battery life are essentially kvetching about basic thermodynamics and physics. 15W-25W hourly draw? That drains a 40W battery fast. Yeah, you can downclock the onboard graphics and CPU manually if you really want to, but Uncle Volvo is not going to automatically do it for you. The "increase in performance" is due to Nintendo gimping the Switch's Tegra chipset intentionally to extend battery life when separated from a power source. When you have an audience who 1) is intelligent enough to do it themselves to their own specifications and preferences and 2) is used to 60FPS, you don't include this as a feature due to potential backlash. Consolefaggotry has rotted as many minds as Windows "I have to look online every time I am missing .dlls but ackshully Linux sucks" gamers when it comes to tech illiteracy on display.
>>559925 >inb4 anon posts a link to a shitty Dell chromebook prone to over heating or a nu-Thinkpad that has the RAM soldered to the motherboard that's a bitch to open up and clean when they inevitably get dusty
>>559943 You're free to overclock it.
Looks like I got my order email yesterday. It says I only have 3 days to confirm the purchase. But considering the ebay prices for it are way more sane now I doubt it would be worth the effort to resell.

What are the chances given the current cultural shift against Microcock corp that GDP will respond to the Steam Dick with their own linux gaymer distro free of the shitty Windows tax? Either that or promote distros like Manjaro or Pop! OS? After all Win11 is just holding hardware back unless you've got over 9000 Niggabytes of RAM to run it at this point. >>559904 First pic is kinda cute honestly. >>559903 Well it does have pretty good speakers from what I've heard as well as a pretty fast SD card reader. >>560545 It's probably worth the wait, sure you won't get six gorrillion dollars but you can still turn a profit non the less. That or just give it as a gift if you know anyone be it a friend or family member who'd want something like that. Of course if your to lazy and unmotivated to be bothered then you should probably just cancel. Honestly I agree with what other anons said, the people selling Steam Decks for thousands of dollars are probably just inflating their value with bot bidders and throwaway accounts. I wonder any of those have actually been sold, I wanna be optimistic and doubt it but there are plenty of dumb fuckers out there to disappoint me too.
>>560545 Did you get your reservation, in hopes of getting the Deck and playing games on it, or in order to resell it at a higher price? If it's the former, then go ahead and buy it, if you have the money, and if you aren't interested in waiting for a potential Deck 2. >>560560 >cultural shift against Microcock I have no love for Microsoft, and I also wish for them to have real competition, still, that doesn't mean hat it's good to live with such delusions.
>>559946 >Because it's not a Nintendo Switch. could have fooled me, it basically is the Switch for PC games, just look at it. The main group of people you need to convince that it's not isn't anons, it's Valve since thats how they are marketing it. Speaking of which, what percent of the PC gaming community is even interested in gaming on the go? Maybe Valve knows something I don't but I don't normally think of PC gamers as a group of people who plays away from home.
>>559041 It's very likely that any handheld PC coming from now on use SteamOS as their platform - they get away from windows tax and get shit like systemwide fps lock, TDP slider, FSR support, Play/Pause and other things that steamos provides. Would they give up native windows support? Its not like aya neo is being bought for running fortnite/halo. How is piracy in linux? Its only download cracked windows files and it just work?
>>559041 >ASUS, MSI making there own versions It would mainly require steamdeck/handhelds to become popular enough/in-demand enough. Asus actually makes a gaming phone and gaming tablet so they are already well poised to make their deck clone. Hell, it can even be 8inch tablet with side mounted clip controllers like pic related, running on steamOS. And they might be able to get the same custome RDNA2 chip deck uses. I would be satisfied if laptop makers get their shit kicked in and start offering powerful GPU + okay CPU at $500-600, but ofcourse it will first require deck/handhelds to be successful enough.
>>560588 the flow isn't even in the running here, 2k for a mobile gaming device is retard tier.
>>560588 The issue with that is making a portable x86 device is alot different from making a portable arm device.
>>560597 Hardware manufacturers have had 44 years to figure out how to make a portable x86 device. There's no excuse except laziness at this point.
>>560604 the asus tablet is an intel 12900h machine.
>>559946 Yeah, downclocking when undocked is just recipe for disaster. Normalfags will complain about not hitting 30fps for half hour of battery life. Better just give manual control to the user and have them the flexibility. Ryzen also doesn't give that big of a performance boost when overclocked compare to the increase in power draw, atleast with desktop chips.
>>560604 If we want to get autistic then portable x86 exists, as Gameboy, Gameboy Color, Wonderswan. Now instead of x86 think IBM PC compatible. I faintly remember that One Laptop Per Child thing started the market for small laptops. Steam Deck might achieve something like that.
>>559452 The Typing of the Dead is not supported for the Deck, and adding in a keypad to it looks impossible. Maybe ASSFAGGOTS and some strategy games wouldn't be ideal with the Deck's controls, either.
>>560687 >adding a keyboard is impossible Pffft
>>560687 Well many games that are tagged as Unsupported by Valve just mean they aren't something that is easily Playable in instant you boot it up, they require more effort on the users part. By the Nature of it's gameplay Typing of the Dead pretty much makes a keyboard mandatory. If you just plug a Keyboard in either though the USB, or Bluethooth, then the game is going to be playable, but that requires extra effort on the users part of having and setting up the keyboard. And also as shown though the webm here >>559450 It would technically be possible to make a control scheme that allows you to map an entire keyboard to the Deck's controls using action sets, It would just be an ungodly pain in the ass to set up and memorize how to type with a controller to the point you can actually play Typing of the Dead though such ridiculous means.
>>560561 I reserved it because I found the device interesting but I've since realized it's not really the product I actually want. It's not pocketable and not very powerful. I'm hoping they innovate a lot more with a steam dick 2 down the road. Or that the steam dick inspires laptop manufacturers to evolve.

>>560687 This, >>560699 I'm sure there's already at least one autist out there who's made a little kick stand for the Deck to lean on and carries a wireless Bluetooth keyboard and if not then it's only a matter of time given the demographic the Deck appeals to. After all there are already people who unironically use the Pine64 phone+little keyboard as their daily driver. >>559320 How does that conversation go, "Hey Abdulla wanna be used as cannon fodder to piss off the Polish? I mean there is a slight chance you'll break through the border and could make it to Germany after all." Or do they just lie? I mean if your stuck in war torn Libya or Yemen I guess that shitty offer might actually be appealing...
>>560763 I hope there's some sperg that uses the CAD files provided by Valve and makes a controller like the keyboard/gamepad combo for the Gamecube. It would be impractical, but funny to see.

>>560800 it has a usb connection, does it not?
>>561378 Do you understand analogies or are you too high on penguin farts?
>>561378 Wine is an emulator, you idiot.
>>561415 Not in a traditional sense, since it's not trying to emulate a specific hardware+suftware configuration. It's a compatibility layer, translating commands on the fly from Windows ones to Linux-compatible ones. Emulators do that too to an extent, so the line between the two is kinda thin. They do have different aims, for the most part. Where Wine attempts to have 1:1 accuracy with every version of Windows' software, most emulators aim for "close enough" accuracy in favor of speed.
>>561415 No it isn't.
>>561320 Not really. If your game is in vulkan basically no calls need to be translated so it runs well. If it isn't made with vulkan then there's some overhead in the translation, though sometimes even then it still ends up performing better than windows, don't ask me how that ends up working. The funniest shit was that Elden Ring performs better because valve was able to fix retarded nigger mistakes fromsoftware made attempting to use dx12. Once proton translates it over to vulkan you can just patch in whatever you want to make it run properly over proton. As much as the steam dick is kind of a big meme I have to admit it's pretty hilarious that because of it we unironically witnessed an easy anti-cheat game run more smoothly on Linux by a non-insignificant amount within the first week of launch on one of the best selling games. The absolute fucking state of windows niggers.
>>561026 That statement is more indicative of your worldview and outlook than it does of people who paid out for the device. It would be a disaster if the users metastasized into another niggercattle cult centered around shitty plastic. You don't see flame wars online about whether Cox or CenturyLink is better, and discussions around the Deck should be the same and free of console niggardy. I know you're trying to force this to be another Tesla, but none exists. >>561167 It would be completely legal of them to remove the Steam UI from SteamOS and slap on some logo. >once you're under steam you're under valve too You do realize SteamOS has a desktop mode that excises Steam, right? >>561415 Wow, I guess Windows is an emulator then too. >>561524 As stated earlier in this thread Windows niggers have to look up missing .dlls because of pooouttadaloo pajeets all of the time but then turn around and act like Linux is incapable of working out of the box.
>>561378 >It's ma'am
>>561172 The bluetooth, the sound, the touch screen. On their website they have a drivers pack that installs everything again, so you don't need to worry about that. The one problem i've had is getting old games running on old resolutions to running on the screen with limited resolutions. Simcity 2000 runs with half the screen missing, everything has to run on window mode or not at all. So i can't get Starcraft to work, but Diablo 2 works in window mode. Also the prince is really expensive, 1,5000$.

I have so many cool indie games in my Steam library that I'm actually pretty interested in buying this, but so far it seems like a pain in the ass to buy and pretty expensive, especially from a shit third world country like mine where the government doubles the price of all imports and there's a very high chance that some corrupt nigger in the customs office will outright steal it anyway.

>>558576 Valve fucked themselves royally with the Deck in my opinion, it 100% will go the way of the of their other products for one simple reason: The release of this thing. It's by a reservation system, what in the fuck? Not just a reservation system but one with the waiting time of what you'd expect with ordering a Lamborghini or Pagani or Koenigsegg. Although at least with the prior when you order them you at least WILL receive them because they are being BUILT for YOU amd they are ALREADY PAID FOR. The Deck uses a fucking reservation system where you're waiting in a line for months and months and months for....the OPPORTUNITY TO FUCKING BUY ONE. Just like the niggers who camped at Gamestop for weeks and months to buy a fucking COD game on release day. Best part is gods help you if something happens and you can't afford to get it in the fucking 3 DAY WINDOW that the fat kike is gracious enough to give you. Can't get it in the 72 hour window that you paid for? Lol tough shit, have fun paying another 5 dollars and waiting another year for your 72 hour window to come again to buy the fucking piece of shit. What in the fuck were they thinking? By the time the first windows became available in February only a bare handful of people were given the opportunity to buy the fucking thing? Come the end of the year for the second opportunity it'll be the same fucking thing, another bare handful of people. Etc etc etc. I don't know if they're trying to make this fucking thing "super duper secret exclusive only kool kids can have". Or if their excuse is the supply train, which it is they should have waited to announce this thing, let alone START ACCEPTING PEOPLE'S FUCKING MONEY, when they...you know....COULD ACTUALLY SHIP OUT MORE THAN A HANDFUL A YEAR. Quite a concept I know, truly extraordinary 999+ IQ thinking right there. By the time they even get through fucking HALF of their reservations, assuming people don't wisen up and cancel their reservation goy tickets ASAP, it'll be too late. There'll be major competition out there. INTELLIGENT competition. The type that'll have a better product that'll actually be...you know....FUCKING AVAILABLE. That everyone will flock to and will do the exact same shit as the Deck but even fucking better. Valve has to realize that other companies are paying attention to the hype this thing generated right? Valve has to realize that their hilariously awful handling of this things release will be a golden goose to any other company that can shit out a handheld computer right? Asus? Hello? How about Apple huh? Nvidia? Intel? Potentially MSI, Gigabyte, etc? How about all the other little companies and autists out there with time, money, and 3D printing machines? Valve can't fucking do anything right can't they? The fucking nerve of that fat fucking prick to charge people for the ability to....buy a fucking product. A fucking product that isn't even fucking available. A fucking product that will be completely obsolete and drowning in competition by the time even half of whatever retards who still kept their reservations and bought the damn thing even fucking receive it. How do you fuck something so simple up so badly? I don't get it. This almost textbook pyramid scheme tier, and with the parasites selling their reservations on Ebay for thousands of shekels it pretty much is textbook pyramid scheme at this point
>>562687 Pretty sure the reservation system is only in place to control costs. They could invest to massively pump out more, but then increase the cost of the item, having to scale the manufacturing facilities up to handle a higher load.
>>562687 I'm not quite sure what is compelling you to sperg the hell out so much here anon but whatever. Valve hasn't done hardware manufacturing to this degree before. The Steam Controller was a Niche experimental product, and the Index was not only Niche but quite expensive. In both of those cases Valve could probably take manufacturing orders on a case by case bases because the demand wasn't all that high. When it comes to the Deck Valve had no real way of knowing what the demand for it really would have been, they couldn't just work on the assumption that this hardware they've never sold anything like before was going to get enough orders that it was going to be back up for possibly over a year, because if they spend serious time making a years worth of bulk Steam Decks, and the announcement didn't manage to cause that kind of demand What the fuck was Valve going to do with That much product that wasn't going to sell? In their position it's far smarter to make the Reservation system, so they can get tangible numbers for what the demand is and how much production they need to achieve, rather then just trying to Gamble with Zero Data to work with. If anyone is complaining about Not getting the Deck fast enough that just means Valve was lucky enough that they underestimated just how much demand there really was going to be in the first place, since how where they really supposed to know? And it doesn't even matter to Valve if there is competition for this kind of hardware, if anything it's a good thing for Valve if there are more products like the Steam Deck in competition, because Valve is selling the Steam Deck at a loss, (The cheapest model at the very least), The profit is coming from people buying Steam games, and Valve lets anyone who wants to use Steam OS. And even if a Steam Deck like piece of hardware isn't using Steam OS, it's very likely people will still use Steam Regardless. The only thing Valve has managed to do is underestimate how large Demand was going to be, but still everything makes sense.
>>562687 Also if someone has months to save up the money and then they can't pay up when the purchase date comes up, then that's their problem, not Valves. That person needs better Money saving and time management skills, and if their life throws a curve ball at them, and they can't afford the Deck anymore, they probably have bigger problems in their life then not getting a Portable Gaming PC. If one person doesn't have their shit together in time, why shouldn't the next person in line who does get their a chance instead.
>>562687 It's the first ultra hyped product I've seen from them, it seems to be selling like hotcakes, it's innovative, people want it and there is no worthy competition to speak of. The biggest tech channels on Jewtube are shilling hard for it and reception is generally quite favorable so that normalfags will want it. Everything points towards it being successful, they just need to sort out the manufacturing shit.

>>562680 >>561879 You really underestimate how normalfags operate. If it looks like a console, they expect it to work like a console, and they expect it to work like every other console. A thing-a-magic that looks squarish and is used to move up and down? Its a dpad. Why isn't it marked like a dpad? Why doesn't it click like a dpad? Oh a game can be installed but has massive red flags around it that says all the risks involved? Well if they didn't want me to install it why give me the option? Why doesn't it work well? Oh a plug fits into a hole and it says charging but it doesn't charge fast? I don't wanna hear about voltages and amps just charge it quickly and take my money. Normalfags don't care about putting in their own work. Normalfags don't care about customizations that take more than 1 button press. Normalfags don't care about anything else but ability of "things just works" and that counts as user experience. If valve removed every single feature, locked the fps, locked the settings resolution of games individually, allowed only handpicked titles that work out of the box with specific control scheme, that's the device that normalfags would like and buy out in droves. Hell they would be surprised if they didn't have to pay for online like other consoles, forget about steam sales. People don't wanna use their brain especially when playing videogames.
>>562687 The way you purchase the device is the single most retarded thing you could have possibly criticized about the steam dick. They literally could not possibly have gone about it in a better way besides having more units to sell at launch, which is completely out of their control anyways unless they delayed it by another year.

>>563104 >Hey, don't feel so down. The midterms are in just a few more months, and that'll help make Biden's handlers a flock of lame ducks until the next election cycle. I think he was implying that he lives in Brazil,Argentina, or Leafland anon. Otherwise he could probably just have it delivered to Rite Aid and then drive/walk there and give his name to receive it with zero hassle or concern and then maybe buy a drink, a pack of gum, or of course any medicine he might need. The US/Canada has it's problems but I've never heard of importers/warehouse workers outright stealing shit before it even gets delivers at least not in terms of it being so bad it's a national crisis. Rite Aid is pretty good for that when you don't want something delivered to your front door for whatever reason. >>562656 How much would a plane ticket or ferry boat ride plus a tourist green card be to hypothetically have it shipped to the USA? Would that unironically be cheaper than just buying it natively? Might as well spend a vacation in the US too while your at it, have anywhere in particular you wanna see?
>>558576 >>561524 Can one run Elden Ring pretty well on Linux distros w/ proton? I'm looking to move from windows altogether, and games are the only thing that keeping me at the moment.
>>562687 Besides what everyone else has already posted, another good thing about the reservation system is that it limited scalping, as you could only reserve one or two per Steam account, and that account had to be at least six months old. As such, when the Deck was announced, scalpers couldn't just make a thousand "different" Steam accounts and order a thousand Decks, unless they knew half an year in advance about it, which is highly unlikely. Would it have been better if Valve could have produced thousands of more Decks? Sure, but the chip shortage is still a problem, not just in consoles/computers but also in automotive as well as other industries.
>>563377 this was in linux thread >>562680 >>562712 mistaking the trackpad into thinking is a dpad is a compliment actually, and deck can have a "charging slowly" indicator when used with a shit charger. But the games being able to install when its not "verified" is a genuine problem that needs to be addressed. If it says its "playable" but not actually playable then change the name to something else, "installable" is better. Verified games need to be placed front and centre because that's what you want the audience to play with. Hell, even partner with the devs to make "Deck Flagship Titles", market them, and it solves the issue of games. Maybe go one step beyond to "lock" installing the non-verified titles behind a simple math equation captcha which these "tech journos" won't be able to solve and just spoonfeed them your select titles. Release it as a proper console out of the box and then non-normalfags can enable tinkering it.
>>563432 That's kind of wild that it performs like that. I guess I should look into some distros and play around with mint etc. Only problem is that I've heard nvidia cards don't play well with linux.

We're the biggest producer of soy beans in the entire world, same reason girls start growing tits before they've even hit puberty in the USA and then go insane later on.

>>565390 he's putting forward correct points from a dev's perspective - your game can be marked as yellow even if you did everything to support it and vulva doesn't tell you why. Your players will report stability issues and crashes even if its marked green and vulva can't tell you why. From the audience perspective, when you're trying to court the "console crowd", you'll have to stoop to their level. Like this>>561879, you have people who will cry "this says playable but it doesn't work, frigging bugged game mechanics". Making a closed, accessible in only one way, but convenient magic box that plays games - that's what the normalfag wants. Else steamdeck will become a dreamcast-like device - great hardware and potential, but failed in mass market
>>565957 Your point is undermined by the fact that the Deck is just a PC. The Deck has already succeeded. It's back ordered into autumn of this year. The problems you're talking about amounts to "the console will 'only' sell 30 million units instead of 300 million." The normalfags who will have problems like "oh no da game green no work" were never PC users to begin with so you've really gained a sale that you never would have got to begin with. Meanwhile PC enthusiasts are buying the thing in droves because the value is so good (although sold at a loss). And the normalfags who will have these issues will still be in the minority anyway, even if Valve fucks up their traffic light rating system
>>565957 >Your players will report stability issues and crashes even if its marked green and vulva can't tell you why. The fuck do you mean valve can't tell you why? It's not valve's responsibility to tell you why your fucking game is crashing. Literally go run it yourself and look at the fucking logs and see why it's crashing then fix it. >From the audience perspective, when you're trying to court the "console crowd", you'll have to stoop to their level.

Else steamdeck will become a dreamcast-like device - great hardware and potential, but failed in mass market The verification system isn't designed to bug test your game. It's the developers responsibility to bug test their games. The verification is a surface level process. I'd agree that from the consumers perspective it's retarded to have things labeled "verified" that might have bugs and stability issues, but from the developers perspective they just need to actually test their games. I don't see how this is a developer issue beyond people bitching at them for not having their games run properly, which is something people should be doing anyways.
>>565957 >court the "console crowd" There is no Steam on any console. Steam Deck is sold only to Steam users for now, Valve isn't fishing for any other audience.

I'm also interested in getting some quality wired Earphones, but I know very little about what would be a good pair to buy. I'm considering 2nd pic related since they look and sound fancy, and I'm willing to splurge a little, but for all I know these could be overpriced.

Considering Mark has explicitly told Valve he wants to work for them, he's probably already designated this place as a shill-worthy place for them to throw some resources at We won't know true numbers or anything until a year down the line, but it's guaranteed to not be very many people.
>>569265 I am interesting in a battery pack yeah, and I'd appreciate a suggestion.

>>569295 >What does that say about this place? I suppose it says that people here are interested in playing video games and are willing to spend money to have that experience. Is that a significant revelation to you? I mean, the Deck is already launched and slowly getting into the hands of people, and so far there haven't been any significant controversies about it. No major hardware flaws have come up, and the software bugs keep getting fixed and updated from what I've seen. At this point what is there to be negative about? And I don't mean that rhetorically; can you give specific issues with the device that make it a bad purchase? I don't own a Switch, so I'm buying this for travel/couch/bed gaming. And I want to use it for emulation. Playing my steam library is a secondary bonus. Also, you're misusing the term "pre-order". A pre-order is paying full price for something before it launches, but the Steam Deck reservation is just spending $5 to hold a spot in line, and you're not obligated to buy it once your turn is up, you can drop your reservation.

The idea of fucking off to some 3rd world country becoming a Opium warlord, then getting kidnapped and learning how to harness physics powers, to then become a pulp Hero does sound appealing if I ever feel like embracing my darkside... but as of right now i'm not a particularly violent person...yet.

I've heard plenty of complaining about "Desk Verified" games havign problems. >devs no longer put native linux builds I've also heard of "Deck Verified" ignoring linux builds of games. >devs prioritize gamepad support This had already been the case for ages aside from the more complex genres.
>>570292 <devs no longer put native linux builds since proton works so well That's a good thing. Devs are too retarded to do native linux builds and linux is too retarded to have stable dependencies.
>>570292 Ya win some ya lose some.
>>570292 <devs no longer put native linux builds since proton works so well >soydevs no longer entrusted with keeping apace of the speed of linux development This is probably good. Many games got released onto Linux native but then never maintained, so the native build would just segfault against newer libraries. Darkest Dungeon is still broken if memory serves right.
>>570292 >devs no longer put native linux builds This is better in my opinion. A lot of the time the developer doesn't actually use linux so they tend to be VERY lazy with the linux port and often there are more bugs on linux that go unfixed then with the windows version. I can think of quite a few games where even when it has a native linux build i'd still use proton to play them. And they aren't small no name games either: Terraria as example is a monoport (lazy fucks) so it has a shitload of bugs like the UI not scaling properly or straight up not taking input devices wasn't an issue before 1.4
>>570820 (rant deleted) I assure you that Linux will never ever take over anything, and Apple won't either, and mobile won't either. That's because programming is hard enough, and programming on anything except Windows sucks soooooooo bad. Windows: just code Microsoft is the only company that understands coders.
>>570861 >That's because programming is hard enough, and programming on anything except Windows sucks soooooooo bad. Anon literally no one besides game developers actually use Windows. Virtually every other form of software development has Windows users as a minority. While I recognize that this is bait you have to at least make it map onto reality somehow. Next time specify game developers so you sound less obviously retarded.

Most Windows software from the XP days still runs on 10 with no issue. That's 20 year software which still works. You know what Linux dependency management reminds me of? It reminds me of Javascript development. A hundred package dependencies, and everything is updating independently all the time, potentially breaking compatibility. Bundling dependencies with the given software into a binary is "bloat" to Linux autists (and even then implementations like Snap Packages apparently have problems and aren't universally supported anyways).

But the two biggest outside supporters of the conflict are actually Iran and Turkey with the Persians supporting the Armenians because they don't want more Kebabs at their doorstep and Turkey supporting Azerbaijan because I dunno killing Armenians is just a national past time for them I guess. In retrospect Armenia's-Azerbaijan's border disputes could easily be solved by both parties agreeing to redraw the borders to allow for their enclaves to connect to their mainlands BUT I'm under no delusion that will happen any time soon. >>572436 >kids use their parents credit cards for hats and microtransactions out the ass I've played some shitty freeium games as a kid-teen in the past and never spent a cent on them.

At least I hope that's the case anyway. Also while I personally don't care much about having a custom profile bundle pack shit but there are plenty of people who do care so maybe Valve should just give people some fancy animated profile theme's for the 64gb model too since that's their least sold model.

You can get a 2230 SSD for very cheap these days so long as you target storefronts who assume you're buying it for your business laptop and source from liquidation and overstock. As evidenced by this thread the $649 model price point already attracts enough retards who think the device is locked down to Steam only and that the extra $250 is worth it for a $35 SSD, a different screen and some JPEGs, so why lower it further and attract even more who would brick their devices immediately and complain they got "scammed" by their own stupidity? You're making money off manipulating mental invalids into thinking they're getting value when you're gutting them, why do the reverse? Also, you dumb nogs, Social Pressure Valve already intends a wider release for next year, though I wouldn't count on it as I expect global supply chains to further break down. Again, if we get more decent handhelds out of this from imitation I would be the happiest man in the world.

I've humored the idea of just getting one of those Minisforums or Slimbooks though I think the latter of those is only available in the EU;SSR since they're made/assembled in Spain or whatever. I dunno, I hear both make great budget servers which makes sense since you could basically Jerryrig one anyone in your home like on a book shelve or behind a TV and forget about it less the power goes out. I also like the fact that they have small SATA HHD drive slots since I still have a few of those laying around and it be nice to put them to use for something in combination with the SSD. But of course non of those are wireless devices so even if I did get one they wouldn't be my daily drivers, also I don't currently have a use for running a server at least for now anyway so I'd prefer something with a battery.

>>556094 >Yet their pocket books and Win's sell regardless, it doesn't matter if they're niche if they've still got customers When you say success and don't clarify the degree, that's relevant for expectations and parameters. GPD can be said to be operating under very modest definitions of success under a very specific set of circumstances, this is not comparable to a major platform holder, and the expectations should not be kept to the absurdly high, almost delusional standards one sees in these kinds of threads. If anyone thinks the Deck will sell over 10 million, they are literally delusional. Hell, even 3 million would be an absurdly high amount of devices for Valve to have sold. 500K to 1 million is far more likely. >They'd probalby sell more if Sony wheren't insufferable picky faggots and would just let game devs make games for them without being impeded by censorship and other bullshit. Yes, Sony is cancer. >That depends For rare edge cases maybe, generally speaking the parts manufacturers make their money based on the fact that they overcharge for the individual pieces. Most businesses do this purposefully. >Why are you against a Vita 2.0 running a Linux Desktop? That just doubles the possibilities of the Vita. Do you not like the idea of being comfy in bed playing Shadow of Colossus while also shitposting on 8Moe? Sounds nice Sony should do it and give up on their shitty PS5 gimmick. Except this thing isn't the Vita 2.0 and anyone claiming otherwise is retarded. This is some kind of hulking monstrosity. Its build quality is poor, its ergonomics are positively shit, its oversized, its overweight, its overpriced (not for a computer admittedly, but for a handheld), its screen is mediocre, its got no physical games and the platform holder has no interest in making any good native games anymore, and its ability to pirate is dubious and that's the only way I would run something that literally has a DRM store built into it. Its emulation ability seems somewhat decent, I'll give it that, but that's the only thing of value I see in this thing. It also supports Valve, which I view as a very negative and dangerous force on the PC gaming market. Yes, they're not as bad as Origin, Epic, and whatever other stores are shit, but they're still a net negative as they are, and they will get worse without question as their decline over the past years have shown. How are you gonna "play in bed" with a device like this, have you taken a look at it? You need a surface to play it on essentially, and its battery life for non-indie games is piss-poor so you'll need to charge it for any session longer than 2-3 hours. >What's not to like about the Deck? It will allow people to play the games they already own on the go as apposed to what other consoles do where you have to buy several copies of the same game. The Deck will be a huge success anon and I'm not saying that as some deluded famboy because Valve has done plenty of retarded shit in the past rather this is a unique situation where Valve has struck gold and managed not to fuck it up this time by giving the customer exactly what they want, a device that they truly own, can fix, and modify to their hearts content without breathing down their necks for doing so like other companies do, plus it plays vidya. <games on Steam <"own" good joke anon. >buy copies Maybe that's the fundamental difference here. I'd only buy physical games if I do buy games, or DRM-free games if they're cheap, I'd always pirate otherwise if I can. >The Deck will be a huge success No, it won't be. They already chose a horrible time to release it. On an objective level, they have fucked up so many aspects of the release that it is guaranteed to be modest at best. Valve is also likely selling this at a loss. I'm not gonna say you're a Valve fanboy, but you definitely don't know anything about how successful standardized gaming hardware releases are done. Valve has basically put a hard-limit on how successful the Deck can be for the foreseeable future. What Valve can do is, because of the absurd amount of capital they have at their disposal, is take financial hits from the Deck's release (and their other failed hardware endeavours) and keep trying in spite of it until they finally do make some headway, but the Deck, practically speaking, is the first real attempt to make a device like this available to the public at large. Have you noticed the only people who are doing YT videos on the Deck are Linus, who is a "new tech" shill, some minor tech reviewer e-celeb who recently became obsessed with the Deck, and like 3 loonix autism channels, and that's it? Its over a month into the release of a supposedly hyped new product, and nobody's fucking talking about this thing besides those channels. Almost like nobody has this thing in their hands, and their interest for the device's novelty is fading rapidly (as one can see if one actually looks in the comments sections of the few Deck vids from people outside of the circle of autism/shilling)

Oh they most certainly aren't interested in conventional gaming PC's, however the Deck isn't a typical gaming PC and Nippon's have been shown to in the past and very consistency not care about things like Muh Gayrphrics or having 60 FPS for that matter given things like the Wii and Switch are still very popular there. I think you really underestimate Nippon autism and absolutely believe people in Japan will carry these things with them on the subway on their way to work/school whatever. Might even end up being more popular in Jpan than in the US in fact given they have first world public transportation and more reasons to therefore carry a Deck.
i'm interested in the steam deck but i'm having a few doubts. if windows is installed on it will i be able to pirate games on it? will this cause problems?

1000% serious, sell that pos while the prices are so good lmao windfall profits, take advantage.
>>574376 >i'm interested in the steam deck but i'm having a few doubts. I don't it's not like they're reinventing the wheel because UMPC's have already existed for a while so there's plenty of past examples of what does and doesn't work and the Deck is nothing like that past flops such as their Steam machine because Valve is actually putting effort into something for once and a lot more so than they have with their past projects so they'll be supporting that thing long term. Or at least I think so anyway as it's a matter of survival for them now, even if they wanted to abandonment their Deck project like their other past projects they can't now because they're to deep in it now to quit with all the time they've invested in engendering, testing, labor training, and even just organizing their third party clients and suppliers and if they fail to fulfill their customers wishes to deliver on their product their competitors and every random bloke on the street will never miss an opportunity to shit on Valve for it. Stress breeds innovation or a breaking point for that matter. >if windows is installed on it If you do intend to do that you should probably get the highest storage version unless your comfortable just changing the eMMC drive out for a third party M.2 SSD. But given Valve is providing support for that now it will probably work with some tinkering. >will i be able to pirate games on it? will this cause problems? Are you asking if you'll have the ability to run torrenting programs like Transmission or whatever it is people use on Windows these days on the Deck hardware itself? Sure I don't see why not, it's just a PC with joysticks after all. Also look on the bright side even if you end up not liking it you can always just sell it used market later on and be guaranteed a buyer perhaps for even more than it's MSR price if WW3/the Cold War 2.0 gets hot since a little energy efficient gaymer station won't make much of a dent in their diesel gas generators they'll be using while curled up in their bunkers so there's no reason not to buy one.
>>574292 I'm no expert but even I know that it's often easier to run older games on Linux than in Windows because you can set compat in Wine/Proton. The delusion I think is coming from all the Anons that think this is going to fail. A year from now you will still be pounding dirt.

Did they put a GTX 3070 in the Steam Deck?
>>575871 No lmfao It's just an integrated GPU
>>575874 Pretty decent as far as energy efficient integrated graphics go, granted AMD's only real competition is Intel which is currently infamous for halving battery life probably because a quarter of it's threads are dedicated to sending your data directly to MOSSAD's HQ servers and since shitting on Mark here is just part of 8Moe's culture we'd get even less battery life for being naughty goyim I'm sure. Though maybe Valve should have waited for Zen 3 to come out especially if that has the potential to boost battery life. Maybe that's why they're humoring the idea of making a Deck 2. I hope they also find a way to mount the battery without it needing to be glued too if so but more battery life is more than enough to make me consider getting one.

>>585281 >How is it? I like it a lot >is the UI for the deck just built into the steam build or do they appear to have actually utilities built on the OS itself? So there's two modes, one is gaming mode which is the custom built in UI which is where you access the special features of steam input such as gyro and touch pads, the other mode is a minimum version of KDE plasma that's kinda locked down but that's likely intentional due to the target audience of this device. >Do you have ease access to terminal? As I've said before, the device is known to be locked down, however there's an option in the settings to unlock it called developer mode. I have not enabled it due to Valve invalidating changes as the device gets more system updates as dev mode is basically pointless unless you want to install Windows or another flavor of GNU/Linux >How well does it play vidya?

I panicked for a bit thinking there was no way to use pacman with text, only to get relief after doing my due diligence. https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2022/04/steam-deck-developer-mode-does-not-turn-off-the-read-only-filesystem/page=2/ <Will SteamOS have a read-only immutable OS file system? >Yes. By default the OS updates will be distributed as a whole OS image, and we recommend installing additional applications via flatpak to avoid issues. If customers want to do more than what’s available by flatpak, they can turn off read-only mode. We don't recommend this though, as they may get their Steam Deck into a bad state or compromise their data. In addition, anything installed outside of flatpak (via pacman for instance) may be wiped with the next SteamOS update. So you will be able to use it like a regular Linux PC, just anticipate having to redo your setup once updates release because the babbies are afraid of what they think is "jailbreaking." This actually answers why we haven't seen a lot of modding and cool tricks with the device yet, it hasn't reached individuals who know how to use Linux properly.
>>585610 >So you will be able to use it like a regular Linux PC, just anticipate having to redo your setup once updates release sounds like shit. If there exists a standalone version of the deck utils it'd probably just be better to install any other distro.

>>585788 The Switch with Joycons is just under 400 grams, The Wii U gamepad is 500 grams, The Steam Deck is 669 grams. So yes it is heavier, and yeah it does cost more, but essentially you are paying for more powerful hardware. The majority of mutiplat games that have a Switch version need to run at 30fps. Those same games are run at 60fps on the Deck, and you have the freedom to limit them to 30fps if you want, in exchange for some more battery life. Even in the case for actual Switch games, emulated Switch games run better on a Steam Deck then they do a Switch. So the decision is up to what you want. Are you fine with what the Switch offers, or do you want more power?
>>585799 I rather just play on my rig as most of the games on the deck is shit I already own on steam. I think this is a cool conpect and all but I don't think this is a great handheld device.
>>585803 Well the Deck isn't supposed to replace your rig, it's supposed to complement it. If you were invested in playing a certent game on your rig, but you needed to go somewhere for an extended period of time, you can still keep playing that game up on the Deck. Of course that's not something that's going to appeal to everyone. If your are satisfied with just playing on Desktop that's cool. but Me personally I'v been in situations where i'm away from my PC, and it would have been nice to have a Steam Deck to kill time, and keep grinding away at the game i'm currently playing. So that's the reason I'm getting one.

M$/Gates which is allied with the World Economic Forum/WEF and does the bidding of the US and Chinese government wants to enslave humanity basically so yeah will argue that Valve for all their faults is the lesser of two evils as much of a meme tier argument as that is it's still objectively true given the context. After all Valve isn't trying to disarm me and force me to live in a Fema Camp that only serves tofu, freeze dried bugs, and fluoridated water which is even worse than many prisons in the world but that's just how much of a sick fuck Bill Gates is. >Valve is not your friend I was never under the impression that they were to begin with, of course that said a for profit company can still occasionally do some good in the world or at the very least be a thorn in the side of even worse companies. Are you gonna stop buying food at your local grocery store just because they aren't your friend? Are you gonna refuse service from a mechanic when your care breaks down just because he's not your friend too? Of course fucking not because that would be asinine and retarded. As a Minarchist Libertarian of sorts I certainly don't agree with everything Iran and North Korea does either but I non the less support their anti globalism and anti central bank stances. My stances with Valve/Steam are similarly aligned plus the Deck is a neat little piece of hardware with a CPU that's good at what it does which is balance vidya performance and battery life. >>585270 >Wireless keyboard that doesn't require an annoying USB antenna dongle thing to pair Interesting, how's it feel typing on that Mark? I might consider getting one myself. Does it use normal triple A batteries? You should buy one of those third party Nintendo switch stands, I've seen a few examples of them actually being perfect for standing the Switch and Deck and since you already own both there's no reason not to plus it's just a cheap piece of plastic though I supposed if you were really autistic you could just 3D print one but that requires knowing WTF your doing since 3D printers aren't just magical boxes, there is after all a lot of calibration trouble shooting to get it right else you just end up with a bunch of plastic spaghetti mess all over your garage which is why I personally don't fuck with it though it would be kinda cool to make one of those FGC-9's I'm not really qualified to mess with 3D printing or to be a gun smith for that matter and I like having all my fingers in tact but if your competent in your craftsmanship give it a try I guess otherwise don't and just spend the six or so dollaridoo's on the Switch stand. There's a lot more than just these two but you get the point.
>>586322 Valve is a lesser evil, yes, but if you think that Valve isn't serving the Chinese government and doesn't already have many massive problems that you aren't implicitly supporting by buying this piece of shit, you are naive. Valve wants to control the PC gaming marketplace, that's just their field, but they are still a multi-billion dollar company and that's a rather large field to possess. Valve still pushes globohomo through their storefront, Steam is still proprietary, hardware-accessing DRM spyware, and they censor and deplatform Japanese games routinely as well as censor their users increasingly for any wrongspeak (and supposedly if you get banned from Steam community as a whole, you lose access to your Steam library too as of late). Their greed and desire to milk the customer even further is also very present, they're just holding back on the worse stuff (like paid mods) because of the backlash they've gotten in the past but that will return. This doesn't get into the fact that SteamOS will likely end up like Android did for phones. Android is based on linux but you wouldn't know it with how it is, and the same will likely go for Steam.

Persians just tie you to a steak and execute you via firing squad now which is far more dignified in my opinion. Personally if I was forced to choose between taking the pink pill and becoming a tranny or just get pumped full of cheap surplus lead I'd choose the latter option. Also let's not forget why Iran is a theocracy in the first place, it's a result of CIA glow nigger and KGB glow nigger fuckery and surprise surprise it backfired like all short sighted US foreign policy endeavors do. We really should just stay out of countries that don't like us honestly and focus more on the few that do want our presence like Taiwan. Also I personally don't care if countries like India wants to buy Iranian gas. For now Iran is a necessary evil that keeps the Saudi's, Israeli's, and Turks in check. Hopefully one day the Persians have their own version of a Ron Paul who isn't shafted and hindered by the "independent" media and transforms the Persian plateau into a more free society but I'm not holding my breath for that since they're constantly under thread from all sides and their only friendly neighbor ironically enough is Armenia and that relationship is merely built on mutual hatred for the Turks. >>593404 >Are you retarded?

In keeping up with >>559065 >>559041 https://piped.kavin.rocks/watch?v=0nUxYj4Givg Aya Neo Geo or whatever held a press conference last weekend where they announced not just one, but at least three new UMPC models. >Air <taking a page from crApple's book, this model addresses all the normalfag bitching about it being bigger and heavier than a Switch Lite and has a 1080p OLED <only has Vega integrated graphics >Slide <knockoff of GPD Win 3's design >Neo 2 <has an AMD Ryzen 6000 series CPU and a Radeon 680M iGPU <no prices announced for any of the above it's afraid As suspected the first movers are repositioning to focus heavily on aesthetics and other "USPs" like native Windows. Basically, anything but the actual hardware and price to performance ratio. I woud like other companies to at least throw their hats into the ring; hell, Dell could dig its UFO concept out of the dustbin and make the resident Arc shill very happy. There's also a shady undercurrent to how the chinks are trying to compete with Valve; Game Pad Digital has already spilled its spaghetti in trying to spread outright disinformation about the SD and both companies seem to be using third-party footage recorded from the Deck running games in advertising their currently weaker models. I also wouldn't be surprised if AYA Space is cribbing software developments from Steam OS 3, and AYA is announcing a freemium model for it no less. As for Volvo, they've updated SteamOS to 3.2, with 40Hz refresh limits and improved fan control. In terms of hardware refreshes I suspect they'll try to get either 6 or 7-series APUs, although they probably can't maintain the same price points without significant upfront loss. >>599812 >>600513 Valve recently backported radial typing from the Steam Controller API so it works the same there as >>600946 >>600996 >>602080 >>602121 >>602146 >>602153 >>602164 >>602168 Cuckchannelers are demonized for good reason.

>>602257 doesn't look bad, I just wish it was more sleek and used other color schemes, but its got a sort of Nintendo Wii-style aesthetic on the white ones. I like how they're getting smaller too, the AIR looks like what the Switch lite should've been (assuming its size is not misleading) It doesn't show the thickness on those pics, its not as bad as it could be but its still not great. The padded sticks on 2 are a good idea if they have good build quality. D-pad doesn't look great on 2 though. If the Air is priced at $500 like the rumors say, that might make them a bigger player in the market, all depends though.

>>602305 The NEXT line honestly strikes me as the company's "experimental" line in that it incorporates and tests out niche features for mainline. >fingerprint sensor >Hall-effect sensors advertised as reducing joystick drift >WiFi 6 GPD seems to be tilting back towards its clamshell origins and focusing on (((Intel))) hardware, aiming for a demographic that balances gaming and work and firmly retaining physical keyboards. AYA, meanwhile, is actively trying to sell itself as the "first AMD handheld on Windows," emphasizing the native Windows installation and aggressively diversifying into as many niches as possible. Both companies are essentially betting on (((Intel))) and Microshart brand recognition overpowering that of Valve's. OneX is kind of in an awkward position where it initially distinguished itself through its higher resolution and PPI screens, but now that its competitors have coopted that feature it's stuck with fast charging and gimmicky branding deals and collabs. It's rumored that the new AYA devices may have lower price points to better compete with the Deck, which is good news to the consumer as it means the latter has succeeded at market disruption. Air is rumored at 3999 RMB, or just around 600 USD, though of course with inflation and global crises (and no validity) it's no guarantee. AYA out of the preexisting market has the best chance of keeping up with Valve as they are betting on continued improvements in hardware and are going out of their way to establish their own software suite, though some argue they are overextending and diluting themselves. It really depends on if they can match the Deck's value proposition, as they can't afford to loss lead like Valve can.
>>602336 >some argue they are overextending and diluting themselves I kinda agree with them on this. I think they should reduce their available models to just two (the cheaper, less powerful Air and the more powerful and expensive main model, maybe renamed to Pro to further differentiate them) and release the keyboard as a separate accessory compatible with both models. 5 (turns out the NEXT has two editions) models are too much, specially when three of them are so similar to each other. IMO the Air model is the most promising of the bunch. It seems to be of the same size of the Switch while having specs similar to the Deck's, and if it's price isn't too prohibitive ($600 like you say) or decides to offer an alternative OS (maybe even SteamOS once Valve releases it), it could be a great alternative to Valve's device.
>>602080 >>602121 Its the weight distribution. A pound and half reads heavier than any handheld device but since its distributed over a wide area and mostly around the center, its much easier to handle. And has controller like grips rather than flat surface to hold it. >>602257 >>602435 They should really focus on one model alone, its almost like they're throwing everything at the wall and see what sticks. The NEXT is the perfect device for this. They can even use SteamOS as a fork of their own AYA OS. But that would require lot of software engineering, something they can't compete with valve on
will the steam deck be able to be purchased from stores eventually or its gonna be only through Valve orders???
>>602480 >will the steam deck be able to be purchased from scalpers* eventually or its gonna be only through Valve orders??? ftfy.
>>602336 what does the hall effect sensor do? Does it really reduce joystick drift?
>>602475 >They should really focus on one model alone, I disagree. Having a Lite (for potential new customers who don't want to spend too much on a "stronger Deck") and a Pro model (for those who were ok with the high price of previous models) is a better approach. >its almost like they're throwing everything at the wall and see what sticks When you are an unknown manufacturer producing devices for a small niche that has recently been entered by a mega-corporation with more employees, money and contacts than you, the only way not to be destroyed by it is to innovate as much as possible until you find a space that the big company has not yet occupied. >They can even use SteamOS as a fork of their own AYA OS Not yet. Valve hasn't released the version of SteamOS used in the Deck.
>>603011 That's a good take, the lite model for bringing in new customers and pro model for those who want more powerful thing. But it depends on the kind of customers they will be having. If the lite is at $4-500 or less, some customer may just pay a bit more for the deck. And if the pro model is barely more powerful than deck, they'll again go for deck and save money. Since pricing is not confirmed, air should be priced $300 to appeal to "who don't want to spend too much" audience >the only way not to be destroyed by it is to innovate as much as possible until you find a space that the big company has not yet occupied. Aya Air could go for the pocketable market, those who want to carry one in a pocket. Vita sized preferably. But then performance will take a hit, so they'll have to balance that. I don't think that current aya customers would want the company to go that route. >Valve hasn't released the version of SteamOS used in the Deck. Oh, they just released a recovery image for reinstalling not the standalone, Can it be used to get it working on other devices? Biggest plus point for Aya (any other handheld company) is they can ship much quicker than valve's reservation system. They need to get their mark on the market first before big baddie shows up.
>>603029 I think they will struggle at selling it at $300, it would just be a pure loss The reason Valve can sell at a loss is because it has money to burn and an online storefront to rely upon and make money from These small companies largely only have crowdfunding and deep pockets of niche consumers, maybe they have a few venture capitalists too but I doubt that
>>603011 >>602475 https://vid.puffyan.us/watch?v=Xr2BO4IPqro People have gotten Steam OS working on other devices like the Aya Neo
>>603029 >And if the pro model is barely more powerful than deck The current models are way more powerful than the Deck, like 15-20fps more with the same visual settings. >air should be priced $300 to appeal to "who don't want to spend too much" audience There's no way the basic model will cost less than $500. Valve can sell their Deck at $399 because they can buy a truckload of components at a discount and cover the loss of every device sold with the sales of their store. Meanwhile, GPD, AYA, OneX and all the other Chinese manufacturers of handheld PC have to pay more and wait longer times to get the necessary components because they lack the resources and capital to optimize their designs on the level of Valve and produce their devices in a large scale, which in turns increases the prices of the final product by a lot. The best chance small manufacturers have to compete with Valve (and to a lesser extent, Nintendo) in terms of specs and price is by moving from x86-64 to ARM (at least in their Air/Lite models) and implementing high-end chips like the Odin Pro did (or will do, I don't know if the device is out yet) that are relatively cheaper than Intel/AMD/NVidia's chips, consume way less energy and take less space than PC components, and perform well with emulators. The biggest downside would be the loss of support of Windows games, but that can be patched to some extent with Linux and WINE.
>>603313 >The biggest downside would be the loss of support of Windows games, but that can be patched to some extent with Linux and WINE. Has already had proof of concepts done running games over wine using ARM linux. So it's only a matter of time until ARM absolutely shit shatters x86.

Heritage Rough Rider VS Heritage Barkeep https://odysee.com/@CloverTac:4/Heritage-Rough-Rider--VS--Heritage-Barkeep-_-22-Single-Action-Revolvers:8 >>603602 Don't really use YT much nowadays since Odysee and Bitchute exist but what are some non shitty or dare I say even good YT channels I can just make a playlist of their videos of and let run in the background to give them the YT equivalent of an upboat or ratio? Even if I personally aren't interested in what they have to say I'll still play it in a muted tab just because especially if it fucks over the tech pozz. I guess Louis Rossman comes to mind even if he's done a du-op with Linus once he's not exactly advertiser friendly, and there's also Mental Outlaw though YT's algorithm likely cucks him for obvious reason I'm sure. >>603571 >which might be even worse Some leafs are good people and just wanna be left alone with their SKS's and maple syrup anon even if their nation has become Reddit incarnate.

>>603583 Did Linus JUST UFD Tech somehow? I know he and his team were on hard times, youtube was fucking him over, his kid got cancer, etc. Saw this on one of his videos and didn't know if he was just playfully poking fun at Linus, or if there's a deeper hatred that inspired it. The guy is very much Linus's schtick, and Linus being the prick he is, it wouldn't surprise me if he pulled strings with his Youtube partner to fuck over UFD. He was certainly looking rough there for a while.
>>603011 >>603029 somehow I doubt Steamos is gonna run as well as on other devices. Valve made it specifically for deck, its integrated with chipset TDP, framelimits, sleep mode with play/pause. Not to mention it uses a custom AMD APU.
>>603844 it will probably run better than Windows would on those devices at least, and that's coming from someone who despises (((Steam)))
Stop talking about that cuck. >>603636 >they can target specific markets - the emulation crowd, the pocketable crowd Maybe not GPD and AYA, but the companies that already produce "retro devices" (like Retroid or Powkiddy) could benefit from using old high end Snapdragon chips instead of whatever they use now to increase the amount of consoles that can be emulated up to GC/Wii, PS2 and 3DS levels without too much effort.
>>603628 >call an e-celeb a faggot and refuse to watch his videos <YOU'RE GIVING HIM VIEWS AND FALLING FOR CLICK BAIT >responds to every single post entirely ignoring the context and derailing the thread <YOU'RE THE ONE RUINING IMAGEBOARDS This post was so abhorrent it unironically warrants a public ban. Kill yourself retard.
