‘We have done lots of reliability tests’
Valve recently announced Steam Deck, and the internet has been blazing with tar. Like most things, Valve is in “wait and see” mode, as there have been several caveats beyond the first revelation that may not make it the “Switch Killer”, many people hope it will be. When we talk about the switch, the comparisons will be natural due to the similar appearance of the device, and Valve is already talking about preventing steam tire operation.
Here is the full quote from Valve hardware engineer Yazan Aldehayyat when asked about Steam Deck operation, spoke to IGN:
“We’ve done a lot of tests on reliability, on all fronts really – and all the inputs and different environmental factors and all that sort of thing. I think we feel that this will work very well. And I think people will be very happy with that. I think it’s going to be a good buy. I mean, obviously every part will fail at some point, but we think people will be very happy and satisfied with this. “
A designer for Steam Deck, John Ikeda, also contributes to Steam Deck operations:
“We deliberately chose something we knew the performance of, right? We did not want to take a risk on it, right? As I’m sure our customers do not want us to take a risk on it either. ”
Was it an excavation? Have!
Now of course Valve is going to say “our product works well!” Until the thing is actually out there and played with, and we see how much rigor this device can withstand over time, it’s just a hope. But Valve is just one in a long line of manufacturers that have designed a portable device with an analog stick, so it is quite possible that everything will actually be fine, and the switch is anomaly.
