Steam Deck vs Nintendo Switch

#1
[Image: nL0PpnH.jpg]

Ok, Valve (Steam) is launching a new handheld console that runs PC games in 2022 February for 399 USD.

It has a linux OS named Steam OS (alternative to Microsoft Windows), so you can browse many websites using Google Chrome. On linux, there are many tools you can use for free such as LibreOffice (Microsoft Office alternative), Kdenlive (Video editing tool like Adobe Premiere). Then what's the difference between this Linux thing and Windows? Well, Linux OS is free while Microsoft Windows is not. And also, many software on Linux are free while Windows' aren't.

By looking at this graphic level, the spec I guess it has a better performance than Nintendo Switch. Well it should because it runs desktop OS as well which allows you to do various things other than gaming.

By here, let me finish brief introduction about Linux thing abd get to the main point.

When a game is released on Windows, basically it only runs on Windows. It doesn't allow Linux to run Windows game. However, there is a technology called protondb, which makes Linux os run Windows games. However, not all games are supported. You can search which games can be run via protondb website:

Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet is supported via proto db, Kurtzpel as well. If you wonder what gold, platinum, or native means, check out their website. Simply put, they basically means how smooth a windows game can be run on linux device.

Well, is it worth buying?
From my perspective, if you are competitive pvp gamer, i don't think you may need it that much because whatever Windows games you run on it, it will be a bit slower than running it in actual Windows. You don't like lagging as competitive games are competitive. For the games that it runs natively without the use of protondb, then it does not matter. You can definitely get it in this case.

Thus, if you are casual gamer playing around mainly singleplayer and co-op games then you may want it, especially if you ever wanted to buy Nintendo Switch while you were more PC gamer so that sort of tendency prevented you from buying Nintendo Switch before.

Additionally I think you can connect keyboard and mouse via bluetooth and play so there is no issue about selection between kbm and controller.

You may also want to get this if you wanted to have handheld PC at reasonable price. 

Lastly please make sure that there are not many anime games natively supported on PC Linux. You will need protondb to play most of anime games. In fact, most of major anime games are released on PC Windows or PS5, not even Nintendo Switch.

I remember about 10 years ago they were releasing Steam Machine and Steam Controller, in which both were failed as a result, and then now releasing even handheld version of them. But at that time when the Steam Machine released, protondb wasn't exist. So this might be different in this time lol.

If you are ever going to get this handheld, please let us know. I really want to talk about this device.
Also feel free to leave your thought!
