Steam Deck is one of the names of the summer. Valve’s new portable device is actually a computer; so much so that we can connect it to a monitor and use it as a PC. But it is also a Steam console, given that its form factor, adapted operating system and compatibility with the entire platform catalog make this machine a product of interest to many. Its size is large, as we can see in these new videos.
