One of the most sought-after portable handhelds on the market is the Steam Deck. It’s also for good
reason because it can play modern video games that are likewise available for PCs. The fact that Valve has announced that there will be another edition of the Steam Deck with even more capabilities shows that the company hasn’t overlooked the popularity of the portable PC.
The Steam Deck pamphlet that introduced the platform, Valve, and Steam to new markets around Asia served as Valve’s confirmation of this. The pamphlet delves deeply into some morsels of knowledge, such as the revelation that SteamOS will acquire a generic installer so that anybody can install the most recent version of SteamOS available from the Steam Deck on their PC.
The booklet’s section about the future next-gen Steam Deck versions, however, is more significant. Yes, the Steam Deck 2 may materialize, and Valve is optimistic about the future. To follow up on this product, Valve plans to release further editions of Steam Deck that include hardware and software enhancements.
As a result, the portable PC and other hardware products from Valve, like the Index, will become a part of a multi-generational product line. Valve will gain insight from the Steam community regarding fresh applications for the platform that they had not yet discovered and will essentially use that feedback to enhance the Steam Deck.
Additionally, Valve claimed that it wished for the new handheld to be “more open” than the previous model. It’s only a matter of time before the business finds a method to make SteamOS more user-friendly, given that it’s already a pretty open system in and of itself. Of all, this is only a hypothetical future and not a reality.
