Reasons To Buy The Steam Deck

There are a lot of reasons to buy the Steam Deck, but we will just provide the most important ones that might be enticing enough to push you to buy the console. Here are some of the things that I most loved.

1. Ergonomics Of The Console

I have just had to acknowledge the amount of thought that the Valve corporation gave into the design of this handheld console. They did a good job and they know what the people want. The thumb stick is comfortable to use, and it does not make your thumb slip. Additionally, the shape of the console is created in a way that allows anyone to grasp it and play games comfortably, regardless of the size of their hands.

2. Speakers

As I said, the creators of this console conceived everything. For them to store the processing power of a whole computer. The console is even faster than most computers, so it would make sense for the cooling system (Fan) to make a little noise.

That is where the speakers come into play. The speaker is loud so you do not need to purchase any headset. The audio channels use stereo with embedded DSP for an immersive listening experience. Using that, you know that is pretty loud, even louder than some PCs.

3. Steam Cloud Play

This feature allows users to save their game data in a cloud that they can access on their handheld console anytime/anywhere. This is awesome. You can play a game on your PC and continue where you left off on your handheld Console on the go.

Well, these are the few quirks of the Steam Deck that might push you to buy this handheld console. But, if they are not enough to change your mind, there are a few tricks that the handheld console has that might impress you.
