    Now that Steam has announced their handheld Steam Deck, perhaps Nintendo will reconsider a more powerful Switch. Demand is so high, Steam's servers crashed. It does not play Nintendo games but Steam games. The cheapest model is $400.

    I don’t know, with today’s current chip shortage, this being the 3rd PC-based system touted as the ‘Nintendo Switch Killer (GPD Win 3, and Alienware UFO being two), the Switch being the US’s best selling console in the last 2.5 years, Nintendo’s hardware philosophy about lateral thinking with withered technologies, not the bleeding edge of technology, alongside Valve’s track-record with Steam Link, Steam Box and THAT, I don’t think you should get your hopes up.

    I don’t think this is going to make Nintendo suddenly announce and release a system with more power just to run a handful of games. (They tried, people didn’t care at the end of the day.)

    Yeah, many of that in hardware way were not successful, but that's even more interesting because at first 1) nothing from that work were not wasted, because it can be used now and many from that finalized, at second 2) mistakes were taken into account (as I can see). And considering that fact that in steam I already has hundred of games and no need to buy something, I, if you put me in front of a choice between switch and deck - will choose deck, because I know what I can do with that and I can do with that EVERYTHING and that was first time when i saw something like that and I said "I want it".

    That fact that GPD Win 3 and Alienware UFO (not even heared about it before) are not Nintendo Switch killers with no doubt because at first it's a shit and at second it's an expensive shit. Steam Deck momentarily, at the snap of fingers made different opinion with much more clear understanding what it will be and for what exactly you have to pay for. And I do not think that it will be a nintendo switch killer, I'm not interested in killing nintendo switch, but it will be a good device for sure, I'm interested in good device.

    Nothing surprising.

    Deck is interesting for power users but I doubt it interests most Switch users. Same as Tesla will never crush GM but it has enough customers to create a niche. I like and support companies that innovate though I cannot afford to buy a Tesla. I can, however, afford to buy a Deck. I also like that the Deck can run Windows if SteamOS does not work out. Unlike the Switch which locked to running Nintendo firmware. I am aware there are hardware mods that ... but this not the board for those kinds of topics.
