81JaxonHSat 7th Aug 2021 @TheFrenchiestFry It'd hard to justify a need for yet another console. But for me, it's never been about need. It's always been about want. Do I "need" the SteamDeck? Well, no. I've been just fine using Switch as my primary gaming platform for the last 4.5 years. I barely even use my other consoles as it is. But do I "want" the SteamDeck? .... Oh heck ya I do. If it were a financial burden then the answer would be an obvious pass. But if you like the concept and can afford it, why not? Especially since this fledgling device will need all the support it can get. The better it does the better off we are as gamers. Don't you want to look forward to a future where this line of devices is a permanent fixture of our beloved industry? I know I do. I would hate to have come this close... only for it to fade away because not enough ppl stepped forward. And, it's only $5 down now and the actual purchase invitation won't be until the middle of next year. That's plenty of time to slap $400 together for the cheaper model. With tax returns in February too, it'll be quite easy to budget for.
