Valve announces Steam Deck, a hybrid console very similar to Nintendo Switch


Don’t panic. Valve has been working on a hybrid console for a while now, and it’s finally ready for prime time. It’s called the Steam Deck, and it’s a hybrid console that’s a combination of an Android tablet and a Steam-powered TV set. Valve says the Steam Deck is intended to be a living room gaming device, and its defining feature is a 4K HDR screen. Unfortunately, the device is not available to purchase just yet, but reviews of the console are already in.

On stage at the Game Developers Conference, Valve announced Steam Deck, a hybrid console that looks very similar to the Nintendo Switch in the design department but is much more powerful under the hood.
