After the confirmation of the improvement of the specifications a few days ago, an idea arose from an interview about any physical games that could raise even more the Steam Deck to the ultimate portable console.
The new portable home console Valve since its announcement it continues to be the center of attention of the videogame community, above all thanks to its totally unexpected presentation. The possibility of being able to play in a similar way to the Nintendo Switch away from home, but with a gaming PC with your own portable Steam library it’s an idea that arouses a lot of interest.
Not surprisingly, the problems related to copies and the high number of bookings that did not arrive late, complete with difficulties related to scalper. The online resale of the models at a higher price than the list price has been a source of unease among the players. Therefore, not only Valve, but other sales platforms are also trying to prevent this problem.
The Steam Deck already offers impressive hardware, with the latest AMD CPU and GPU and LPDDR5 memory which a few days ago confirmed that it will be brought to its maximum potential to make the most of the console. However, now another interesting idea arises that will meet the joy of collectors: at the moment we know that the device has been designed with the slot intended for SD cards, which will be able to expand the opportunities offered for example. bringing the memory to 1TB.
In an interview with IGN, Valve returned to talk about the gaming experience on the console. He also stressed the possibility of software expansion up to the point where the titles can be uploaded via SD card from another device. If gamers could play physical games this way, the Steam Deck could have a notch ahead of all other devices, almost becoming a plug-and-play portable console.
This would not exclude the possible market for physical games coming out as an exclusive, since in the case of the PlayStation 5 the version with physical support is having the best compared to the All-Digital. In any case, Valve seems to be satisfied with the performance of the Steam Deck, which clearly makes us curious to know even more while waiting for further updates on the console.
