Valve Says That There's 'No Game' The Steam Deck Can't Handle... Yet

Valve is so confident in the Steam Deck, they've announced that they haven't found a single game it can't handle.

The device is being marketed as a handheld console that will allow players to play traditionally PC-focused games on the go. Valve even made a point to say that it is "comparable to a gaming laptop with the ability to run the latest AAA games". And if their latest comment is anything to go by, they've nailed it. 

Speaking to IGN, Valve’s Pierre-Loup Griffais said: "We’ve been looking at various games the past few years in the back catalog, but the real test for us was games that were coming out last year. They just couldn’t really run very well on the previous types of prototypes and architectures we were testing."

He continued: "This is the first time we’ve achieved the level of performance that is required to really run the latest generation of games without problems. All the games we wanted to be playable is, really, the entire Steam library. We haven’t really found something we could throw at this device that it couldn’t handle."

What Does The Steam Deck Look Like?

The Steam Deck has a 7" screen, two analogue sticks, two touchpads, ABXY face buttons, four rear buttons, analogue triggers, and gyro controls. The placement of the analogue sticks has raised some eyebrows, as traditionally they appear closer to the bottom of handheld devices, but we're just going to have to wait and see how effective this placement is.

What Games Can You Play On The Steam Deck?

Well, it looks like pretty much everything you can currently play on Steam. Which we would hope. When the console launches in December, we'll know for sure. But for now, it all seems very encouraging.
