Valve's Steam Deck can now play more games than Sony's PS3 and PS4 combined
Valve's Steam Deck gaming handheld is a revolutionary device, offering gamers the ability to play PC games on the go on a device that is considerably more powerful than Nintendo's Switch console.
Recently, Valve's Steam Deck system officially passed the 8,000 games mark, with 2988 Steam games being listed as "Verified" and a further 5032 being listed as "Playable". That's 8,020 games in total, which is more games than Sony's PS3 (2561 games) and PS4 (3282 games and counting) consoles combined.
Some of the latest additions to Steam Deck's "Verified" and "Playable" categories include Atomic Heart, Cyberpunk 2077, Darkest Dungeon, Octopath Traveller II, and Resident Evil 3. Valve has also released a list of Steam Deck's most played games for February, with Hogwarts Legacy, Elden Ring, Red Dead Redemption 2, The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt, Persona 5 Royal, and Marvel's Midnight Suns being included on the list.
It is worth noting that Valve's 8,020 Verified or Playable games only include titles that are available on the Steam Storefront, and the reality is that the Steam Deck can support many more games though emulation, or though 3rd party PC games storefronts like the Epic Games Store, GOG, Ubisoft Connect, and the EA App.

As cool as this is an honestly quite an accomplishment, I still don't know one person who owns one.
It would be fine if they did not have other gaming implements but they do.Quote
it's a decent device but like anything needs a use case otherwise it'll just sit idle.Quote
Just one example. I mean yeah if you were young and you went out a lot I can understand why you would use it. Otherwise though? my mates all have gaming PCs and at worst, a PS5 or something.Quote
For my friend he takes it to work on trips away etc and is holding off on PS5 etc only has a budget laptop so with the dock it keeps him happy, plays mainly retro style games.
I think it's a good device it's just a case does it fit into your life, like most handhelds last one i had that i used a ton was a nintendo DS but that was some years back now.
As good as it is i just can't get one as i'd not use it enough, regardless of how big my steam libary is i'm on my PC and not away enough to need one.
if however the price dropped a ton then i could see myself getting one and most likely will at some point.Quote
