ASUS ROG Ally Discussion Thread.

Since I'm getting Diablo IV and Lego 2k Drive for the pc (Lego 2K Drive doesn't have cross-progression like Disney Speedstorm does) decided to bite the bullet and get an Asus. Just placed the pre-order. Going to be great having those two games on the go and I can also use it for Speedstorm. I prefer the PC for playing but like the flexibility of having it on the go. Comes out June 13th.

My gaming PC cost less than the highest priced one. I don't game on the go much, but I can understand the need and want for these.

I am intrigued about this Steam Deck competitor (especially how you can dock it to a 4090 for extra graphical performance at home) but I'll wait for reviews and user experiences (the latter due to Asus' recent end user woes).

Your gaming rig cost under $700.

Yeah it did. My Lenovo Legion cost 656.59 before taxes. A couple of people on this forum helped me find a really good deal on it.

In the end, that's all that really matters.

He pronounces it Ah-soos... I always pronounced it Ay-suss.

I like his channel. He usually tells it like it is.

Curious why you're looking at the Asus vs the Steamdeck?

That is a really cool feature but it costs $1500. I feel like that's the case with a lot of these "features" in a lot of different tech. Yeah theoretically it's really cool but it's also usually extremely cost prohibitive, or just never comes to fruition.

Power. Everyone is comparing prerelease ally to year 2 steam deck. This will be able to do more. And it's 50 bucks more. I wanted a portable pc gaming machine so I may as well go for the technically better machine.

Re: ASUS ROG Ally Discussion Thread.

Yeah but. Even though he says it's okay, I would pick the steamdeck over the Asus based on that Dpad alone. I absolutely hated the old circular XBox Dpad.

I prefer circular dpads to just 4 sticks

I also have very small hands so when it comes to controls the more people complain about them (other than things like stick drifting) the more I know they will work for me.

Eh, I already have a Steamdeck that I've put way too much time into customizing. I think I'll stick with them until the next gen is available. But props to Asus for getting in the budget PC handheld field.

Re: ASUS ROG Ally Discussion Thread.

Oh if I had one I definitely wouldn't switch, but for me it makes no sense to get the top tier Deck while the Asus is two weeks away.

Re: ASUS ROG Ally Discussion Thread.

That's fair, I got the lowest tier Deck and swapped out the HDD ... which wound up not being necessary due to how well it ran off MicroSDs.

I'm excited to play Speedstorm, Lego 2K Drive, and Diablo IV on the TV.
