Steam Deck 2 is absolutely coming, new booklet from Valve confirms

By - | Views: 83,329

Valve has just released a rather fancy Steam Deck Booklet to introduce Valve, Steam and the Steam Deck to the new markets across Asia they're about to expand into and it gives some fun details.

A lot of it goes over all the stuff those of us across western markets already know, including where Valve has servers located, info on their previous hardware and how things like the Steam Link and Steam Controller enabled the Steam Deck to actually be a thing.

It also confirmed, again, that SteamOS will be getting a generic installer so that anyone will be able to install the latest SteamOS available from the Steam Deck on their PC. Along with that, hardware vendors will also be able to use it so we'll eventually see devices from others with some already looking into it like GPD and OneXPlayer.

What about a Steam Deck 2 then? Well, it doesn't get much more firm than "In the future, Valve will follow up on this
product with improvements and iterations to hardware and software, bringing new versions of Steam Deck to market." which was taken from the last info page:

The page mentions they want it to be "even more open" than the first generation too. I'm not sure how they plan to improve on that, since it's already one of the most open mainstream gaming devices around but I'm keen to see what they have planned.

What do you think about the future of the Steam Deck and SteamOS?
