Dumb take. Congratulations.With those numbers it's currently an irrelevant platform.

Regarding performance, it's generally great across the board. 30/40hz is feasible on just about every game and a huge amount reach 60 with no issues. Only the more demanding AAA games like RDR2/CP2077 will be impossible at 60. The resolution FSR scaler is your best tool hitting 60 fps. Personally battery life, fan noise and size of the thing will be of greater concern than performance.this is definitely something i want to get before i move to europe - i heard you can run most games on 30 at normal graphics settings but to run 60 you need to run medium to light. is this true? Also how is the modding scene for things like snes games? what is the most recommended model, etc? i was going to get the mid range one. how long did it take to ship to you that do have them? i heard it can run switch games better than the switch itself.
They are going the opposite approach this time which should work well in their favor. Use their own hardware and marketing power to ready Steam OS3 for the mainstream. Once it looks pretty good to go, release it for consumers and other vendors to put Steam OS3 on non-Steam Deck hardware.Sounds pretty bad... but then you realise that they're more than likely significantly limited by manufacturing capacity.
They should have gone the Steam Machine's route, but with narrower hardware configuration options and let third parties like Samsung, Asus, Acer and Dell make their own versions of the hardware.
On top of that, no mainstream marketing. All Valve has done is market it on their own platform and relied on word of mouth. The fact it sold even a million shows how powerful their influence is over their Steam users.Cool.
I think it's a good number, specially considering it's a niche product and it's being sold on just one online platform, without any units on the wild.
Enjoy the long wait sir!When is Deck 2 release? I'll put my name on the wait list when that comes out.
…. Ok. Compared to what? What data points are you using for comparisons? Are you just comparing it to the install base of the Nintendo switch and that’s just the way it is to you I guess? LolThat's not a good number.
Only people pitting Steam Deck sales against Switch were idiots and Nintendo fanboys.Gonna beat Switch any day now.
The fanboys will be excused if someone was dumb enough to tout the Deck as a Switch killer, or even as being able to remotely compete numbers-wise.Only people pitting Steam Deck sales against Switch were idiots and Nintendo fanboys.
how come the os wasn't ready and you couldn't play anything?They are going the opposite approach this time which should work well in their favor.

The major issue with Steam Machines was the OS simply was not ready and you couldn't play shit.
lol still can't even order an index down here right? We will never see the deck 1, 2 or 3 oops never be a 3 anyway.˙uǝɥʇ ʎq ǝsɐǝlǝɹ oʇ ǝsolɔ uoısɹǝʌ ʇxǝu ǝɥʇ ǝʌɐɥ ʎlqɐqoɹd ll,ǝʍ 'ɥƃnoɥʇl∀ ˙ɐılɐɹʇsn∀ uı ʇı ƃuıllǝs ʇɹɐʇs oʇ ɯǝɥʇ ɹoɟ ʇıɐʍ ʇ,uɐƆ
That's not a good number.
... it's a PC.
It’s a PC…you are dumb as fuck
Who said Doomed?You are right!
It is doomed! How will this complementary, non-necessary, Steam-store only product ever survive against the likes of Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft!?
Hell, even THOSE consoles are dead! 100m consoles sold? That's like NOTHING compared to mobile phones! Why even produce consoles!?
That's how people sound that try to spin this as anything besides incredible numbers.
That kinda depends on Valve. Up until now I've seen the Deck as a product aimed mostly at people that are already gaming on PC with lots of money to spend on an extra device, basically a niche product.1 million in 6 months is bad by console standards but seeing how these things need to be sold I can understand the slow sales. I'm hoping it'll hit 7 million by the next 2 years.
The 2nd iteration is when shit will really kick into high gear
Amazing reasoning skills right therethose numbers aren't good because... well they aren't
