It’s February 25th, 2022, which means that Valve’s handheld console, the Steam Deck, has been released. So far, initial reviews of the console have been largely positive, but given that this is the first generation, we naturally expect that there are a lot of areas that Valve could improve.
The good news for those who aren’t necessarily early adopters is that Valve has already started thinking about Steam Deck 2. This is according to an interview with Edge (via GamesRadar), where Valve’s co-founder Gabe Newell revealed some plans for what the company would do with the second-gen model.
According to Newell, it seems that a more powerful and potentially more expensive model could be something they are considering. “It’s an example where we’re a little surprised by what our customers tell us. They’re basically saying, “We’d like an even more expensive version of this,” in terms of horsepower capabilities or whatever. You know, that’s why we always love to put something out and ship it. Because we learn a lot from it and it helps shape our thoughts for Deck 2.”
He also revealed that the company is considering making it more than just a console for your PC gaming and taking the device beyond what you could get from a desktop or laptop. He also mentions the possibility of it being used for VR. Of course, it’s probably too early to say what Steam Deck 2 might bring to the table, but it’s promising that Valve is already thinking about it.
