Back in May 2021, a rumor came out suggesting that Valve was working on a new handheld PC device called the SteamPal. While that is partially true, the one thing that didn't stick through to the end was the name. These devices are officially called Steam Deck and they start at a pretty affordable $399 (USD) MSRP.

Valve says that Steam Deck is a "powerful all-in-one portable PC." It has a custom process that they developed alongside AMD and is said to be comparable to a gaming laptop. Thanks to the Steam Deck's portability, you will be able to take your existing Steam library with you wherever you go.

This device is also an open PC, which allows you to "install any software or connect with any hardware."

"We think Steam Deck gives people another way to play the games they love on a high-performance device at a great price," says Valve founder Gabe Newell. "As a gamer, this is a product I've always wanted. And as a game developer, it's the mobile device I've always wanted for our partners."
The Steam Deck starts at $399 for the basic model. There will be other options at $529 and $649 that come with increased storage options. As far as we can tell, the change in storage will be the only differences between these three models.

Reservations open on July 16 at 10AM (PT). Steam Deck is expected to begin shipping in December 2021.
