I got mine. Preorder came in but I almost didn't order it. I'm glad I did, it's not cheap by far though. However I'm very happy and it's got me playing more games. If anyone is curious about stuff ask me here. However I haven't really done too much emulator stuff yet it's all very easy. You don't have to crack anything.

Yes. There are several methods of installing and playing non steam games. GOG and epic games can be installed via Heroic Launcher or Lutris and "repacked" games can be installed directly through Steams install non steam game feature.

nice! What about cracked games? Or how does friendly games work in SD?
The SD is basically 100% open, you can just about do whatever you want. It's basically a PC, you can put Windows on it, it has Linux already on it, you can dual boot and install just about anything. Most of the things you *want* to install are already working or being worked on by the community. Yes you can install cracked steam games, you have to do that on the desktop side and there are lots of tutorials to make that fairy easy. You can add any of these into the SteamOS to launch from there so you don't have to go into desktop after.

Sounds cool.

What does desktop means? Do you have any links or video guide/explanations? I am looking at playing ps3 games and steam and windows crack games.

It's just means literally the desktop as if you were on a full PC and you have to use mouse or touch controls and keyboard. You wouldn't have to use that much if at all if you don't want to. That emudeck website sets it all up for you, there is also https://github.com/XargonWan/RetroDECK which does the same but some peope prefer.

Seems complicated.

Does the desktop already pre-avaliable? Or we need to install it? The desktop is Linux or Windows?

It's part of the OS. You don't need to ever use it if you don't want to.

I see, so the steam deck is Linux base. Desktop os is Linux, and we can install Crack version of steam and non steam games directly, with windows exe format?

Thats a little more complicated. I'm not 100% sure, you can install windows 11 if you really wanted but it will hurt performance some.

Cool. I should be receiving mine by end of the month. Any tips and tricks before games are loaded?

Check for updates, mess around browsing the store and playing the free "Aperture Desk Job" game. It will both show you how to touch/use ALL the buttons on the deck it will also make sure all the buttons are working correctly. It's short, maybe 30 mins?

Before it gets here : Pick a few games you want to play and make a collection on steam called "Steam Deck" or something you'd like and put games in there. It'll be a little easier to just go there and scroll around then trying to search and browse later on the deck itself. Any game that has a yellow mark doesn't mean it won't work, it just means there might be a launcher you have to click or use "the mouse" for a second to click start or something. Experiment, it won't hurt the deck. So far it has never crashed on me and a few games failed to lauch, just hit the steam button and quit it.
