Steam Deck is a video console motivated by a mobile video game computer established by Valve Corporation. Its launch is scheduled for December 2021, although later it was revealed its launch for February 2022 due to the absence of products for manufacturing. Several customers will later on obtain it complying with the reserve supply established by Valve as well as can get to the very first quarter of 2023.

We are curious if Valve can conquer the handheld market with the Steam Deck or in the end but sang and tallies.
