Valve has published a new FAQ page for the Steam Deck, answering a bunch of the internet’s most burning questions about the upcoming portable gaming PC.
Valve says it picked out 20 of the most popular questions about Steam Deck received over the past few months from Reddit, Discord, Twitter, and CEO Gabe Newell’s email inbox. Though we had plenty to say in our hands-on Steam Deck preview, there are still a lot of unknowns about the console, and now we have a bunch of fresh answers on key features straight from Valve.
Some of the new information we had already expected, like Steam Deck’s ability to run non-Steam games via Proton, but some of what’s answered in the FAQ page is genuinely new and exciting. For one, Valve today confirmed that you’ll be able to use the Steam Deck as a PC controller via Remote Play, which should please folks eager for a game pad with more features like touchpads, touch-sensitive control sticks, and extra back buttons.
