Steam Deck hits over 3,000 games either Verified or Playable

By - | Views: 41,710

There it is, the next big milestone for the Steam Deck has been hit with over 3,000 games now rated as either Verified or Playable. It's just a number of course, and there's far more you can actually play, this is just what Valve has formally put through Deck Verified.

Looking back that's over 500 since I last covered this when it hit around 2,500 back on May 4th, the rate is quite impressive although it's still thoroughly random what goes through. A long way to go though of course considering how many games there are on Steam.

Going by SteamDB the latest numbers are:

  • 1535 - Verified
  • 1493 - Playable
  • 1322 - Unsupported

Some of the latest to be Verified or Playable include:

  • Between the Stars (Playable)
  • Beyond a Steel Sky (Verified)
  • FAR: Lone Sails (Verified)
  • Serious Sam 4 (Verified)
  • Temtem (Verified)
  • Thumper (Verified)

Also, the Steam Deck has now spent 5 weeks at the top of the Steam charts when sorted by revenue (no way to view by units, Valve don't give that out). Nice to see it continue doing so well!

Serious Sam 4... like the only Croteam game that isn't Linux Native (yet?). Was saddened when they stopped their awesome trend...

I might be in the minority, but I’m just happy it works at all.
I look at it like:
I want to run cars on pickle juice but most manufacturers only make gasoline cars.
Someone (Valve and others) made it so I can run my car on pickle juice.
I’m okay with that 🤷‍♂️

It's still sad when a manufacturer stops producing pickle juice powered cars.

It seemed like their development process was shaken up pretty badly when covid 2019 happened and then the next year people had to adapt to remote workflows who weren't calibrated for that.

I still haven't bought SS4, I've bought all their other Linux titles.

It looks like their review score is 83% positive, when they launched it was off to a much shakier start

Maybe I'll buy for the Steam Deck if they target it and work the bugs out, I do expect support in exchange for my money and that products work.

"Steam Deck hits over 3,000 games either Verified or Playable"

Does the Deck even have 3,000 owners yet?

With over 1700 invites documented on this spreadsheet, it seems plausible to me that there are at least 3,000 owners now:

Edit: Though at least some of those 'got invite' reports appear to instead be a misunderstanding of how to populate one's row in the spreadsheet; I've not tried to check at how common that apparent misunderstanding is in the data.

Maybe go look at some of the calculations commenters have made based on Steam Deck being the top seller on Steam for now 5 weeks running--definitely in the hundreds of thousands at this point.
Now that the Deck is in the hardware survey I'll be interested to see the survey results for a while.

Top seller in terms of revenue, not units. With it costing 10x as much as a game that tells us… zero.

Um, no. It tells us the sales are at least 1/10th of the top selling games in the same time period. The top selling games are selling in the millions, so that leaves 1/10th being in the hundreds of thousands.
