While the ongoing rivalry between mainstream consoles like Xbox and PlayStation is widely known, there’s also a competition going on in the handheld segment. Previously, it was single-handedly ruled by Nintendo Switch, but now it’s getting a tough challenge from Steam Deck.

Valve’s gaming PC, since its early release this year, has gained good momentum so far. Thanks to its ergonomics and value for money, the device is getting more popular each month. Keeping that in mind, its manufacturer is also working on increasing the production so that more customers can have it in their hands.
