Don’t buy the base model Steam Deck

The Steam Deck got revealed yesterday, and it’s surprisingly affordable for a PC gaming product. $399 in the US for a handheld gaming PC with a 2TFLOP GPU? Consider me sold. Oh, it has just 64GB of eMMC? Nevermind. 

Now that major PC games can take up over 100GB of storage, it’s absolutely silly to sell something like the Steam Deck, which advertises that it can run any game in your Steam Library, with such a paltry amount of storage. 

So, if you’re going to buy a Steam Deck, while the $399 entry price is probably pretty appealing – especially since the Switch OLED is just a bit cheaper at $349 – you might want to either hold off, or pick up one of the more capacious versions.
