This same week, Valve confirmed the existence of Steam Deck, its new portable console that comes to fill a gap in the market that has been in demand for several years, such as being able to play PC titles natively (since streaming is something that can be done for a long time) through a laptop.
However, despite the initial enthusiasm, as shown by the success in reservations that the console has had in its first hours, it is not without its cons. Valve’s laptop will ship with its own Linux-based OS, causing it to Steam Deck has compatibility issues with various games, due to the lack of support for said operating system.

According to information shared by ProtonDB, Steam Deck has compatibility issues in games as important as Destiny 2, Apex Legends, PUBG or Rainbow Six Siege.
