The Steam Deck has had quite a ride so far, considering Valve can’t keep up with the huge demand for the portable gaming PC. Valve and many other developers have made sure that users of Steam Deck don’t run out of games, as the number of Steam games accessible on the device has doubled since last month.
Last month, Steam Deck had more than 1,000 verified and playable games. Steam games that are “Verified” for Steam Deck they mean they have been thoroughly tested and are fully compatible with the device, while “Playable” games should work on the Steam Deck without issue, however some compatibility issues may arise. Steam Deck had 559 Verified games and 498 Playable games in its library at the beginning of March, but Valve has made great strides since then.
The owners of Steam Deck they have now more than two thousand games availableof which 1,000 are Verified and 1,000 are Playable. Another 1,000 games that were tested for the Steam Deck are currently not supported, meaning these games will not work on the Steam Deck at all. However, Valve has plans to make these games work on the portable PC.
The Witcher 3 is one of the recent games that have been added to Steam Deck. This is an incredible feat considering that many consoles were unable to run the title when it launched in 2015 due to how graphically demanding it was. The game was ported to the Nintendo Switch some time ago, but was only offered in 540p resolution in handheld mode, while Steam Deck is capable of running The Witcher 3 at full graphics and 800p resolution.
Valve has also recently added support for Windows 11 in Steam Deck. The operating system is not yet fully optimized, and it has been previously noted that using Windows 10 on the Steam Deck could significantly hinder performance in some games, however, users who prefer Windows to Linux will likely be able to use Microsoft’s operating system. in the future.
