With the planned launch of the Steam Deck in February, Valve’s PC console is becoming more and more attractive to gamers, especially as little by little more is being said about its catalog and its performance. If nothing was known about the duration of its battery, today via the StreamDB database a list of games compatible with Steam Deck has been published, 86 to be more precise, but 5 of them…
Some users, thanks to the research tools of the famous StreamDB games database powered by Steam itself, obtained a total list of 86 titles that would be cataloged as certified for Steam Deck, including 42 of the lists They are verified .
List of games compatible with Steam Deck
In the absence of Valve releasing an official list of games compatible with steam bridge, the one obtained by users through the search tools of the company’s well-known games database was a total of 86 titles of the most varied, which, if correct, would be verified for the new platform. form of play. Of these 86 titles, not all are 100% compatibility
Between these 86 localized games with compatibility certification, a total of 42 titles were cataloged and marked “checked“and 36 of them like”playable”. In detail, the list shows 5 titles labeled as not compatible.
According to the cataloging of the database itself, it mentions that:
- Checked: game you can use all default setting features
- Playable : games cataloged with this mark may be realized, but they do not conform to any of the possibilities mentioned above and may not be fully compatible with some default configurations or may not give the optimum performance that Valve considers it should give to the steam bridge in graphics settings.
- Unsupported: games that won’t work on the console, such as virtual reality games from the list.
Green “Verified” – Yellow “Playable” – Red “Not Supported”
No performance details, worries?
Without knowing more details about the performance of the console in certain games, there is a general concern in the list of “playable” games. As mentioned above, necessarily are not verified due to lack of performance, it may be because some feature or configuration of the game itself is not compatible, for example, with the controls of the Steam Deck and its button panel, maybe the game offers, like Civilization 6 or Wasteland 3, a Text zone to write in the game itself and requires a virtual keyboard to enter information.
Concern among players due to ignorance, given that on the eve of its very early launch -it is expected in February- no FPS details have been released and performance of the console without games, creating uncertainty around its power offered by the AMD RDNA2 graphics card that the console itself incorporates, which in addition to the latest details we know about the Steam Deck, such as its battery life, creates clouds of doubt as to its actual usability as a than portable PC console.
