I’m posting this as a counter to the number of steam deck and steam deck alternatives that have been coming out. You may already have the tech you need in your house.
I’m shooketh by the number of people who I have talked to about this and just didn’t know.
For me, this is a hard replacement for a steam deck. Obviously I can only play on my wifi network, but it’s great for playing in bed or on the couch.
Candidly, I’m a degenerate and have played like 30% of my time in Elden Ring via steam link and a PS4 Controller.
For me, it’s been a great experience, but of course, it’s bottlenecked by your network setup. I’m lucky and it all works well, but it won’t for everyone.
