I'm loving mine, though few issues (screen sometimes not displaying correctly when pressing power button, screen didn't display on one instance at boot time). Ability to run some of my Epic games is really cool (with some cloud save issues, but im able to work around them).

Just time consuming loading my games to micro SD card

Loving mine as well. All those indie games I bought during Steam summer sales are finally getting play time. Stuff I never would have sat in front of a PC for hours to play.

My biggest gripe is loading time. I bought the 512 and games still load kinda slow compared to what I expected from a NVMe. It’s not terrible but I guess I’m spoiled by my PC and PS5.

My Steam Deck arrived yesterday... I have not had any time to do anything with it aside from get connected and download an update... BUT (and I take full responsibility for this as I know not everything is compatible), I was hugely disappointed to learn that two games I own (Rainbow Six Siege and Legend Bowl) are not compatible with this device. When I looked at the list of "best games for Steam Deck", most I have played or have no interest in. I get it's Linux based but I was hoping for compatibility with one of the most successful MP games ever

I mean that's up to Ubisoft and their stance on anti cheat stuff, isn't it?

Throw windows on it?



That guy's Description is a trove of bonus info for the Steam Deck. Legend Bowl apparently runs only minor issues, apparently you just need to ensure it's in Windowed mode.

Mine came up for purchase this weekend but it's literally just days since I upgraded my Switch and bought a video pinball table. Timing not good for another big video game purchase so I let it expire. Might go back in line for next year.

I did find a comprehensive video on YouTube to add Windows --- which I'll probably give it a shot.

Update: I was able to get a Windows boot process going on a 512GB micro-SD card and it works perfectly.

Anybody using Game Pass on your Steam Deck? I was going to try and set mine up tonight.
