Considering you can run games off of a flash memory card and it includes 16GB of RAM there seems to be little incentive to upgrade the built in storage.Now that expansion if necessary is confirmed, I'm glad I got the 256GB one
If Valve can deliver as estimated (I'm still skeptical). I may get mine sooner too.
It is pretty modular but it sounds like they make it pretty clear that the plastic framing on it isn't very sturdy and you will weaken the durability by opening it even once. From my experience, opening devices like this can leave undesired consequences (e.g. creaking frame, visible abrasion along plastic seam, and permanent damage from repeated openings). It could range from being no issue, to leaving your new Steam deck appearing and feeling very "used" before you've had the chance to enjoy it.Cool vid. Contrary to my early assumptions it is indeed more modular than I thought it would be. I really like the idea of replaceable thumbsticks and the suggestion replacement parts will be available.
My favorite part is a comment made in the first 30 seconds - 'it is your PC and you have every right to do what you want with it'.
It's a big improvement.Good news! I switched to Big Picture exactly once, fooled around a bit with a confused look on my face, and switched it back immediately. Glad the Deck UI will be more like a variation of the regular Steam UI.
