The console will hit the market in three models.

The success of Nintendo Switch in the video game market has led others to see that the hybrid console formula presented by Nintendo works, which gives rise to other companies launch with their own proposals, this being the case of Valve, the famous company behind Steam, the digital PC platform, which a few months ago it announced Steam Deck, a portable console that would move to the great titles of Steam.

It is because of that since its announcement this console has caused great expectation, since, faced with the technical limitations of Nintendo Switch, Steam Deck has been seen moving PC titles without any problem, which could mean that we can play titles like GTA V in portable mode (for example). Nevertheless, even though many thirds parties have confirmed that their games will be compatible, the truth is the interest of users is to know if there will be exclusive games on Steam Deck.

Thus, could help sell consoles, but the truth is that the sales market would be limiting a lot, since it is not known if the console will be a success, so this could mean that large titles do not sell what they should if they fail.

Having said all this, it should be noted that Steam Deck should have released in the weeks to come. However, the situation that the world is experiencing with the health crisis caused a delay in its launch to February 2022.
