Posting this video even though I hate GameXplain, for similar reasons why I hate IGN for their bloated views.
-30 FPS is just a benchmark, games can do higher and more. They have yet to find a game that actually struggles or suffers.
- They made sure all parts will last a long time, they however will still fail because that is life.
- They are aware of Switch comparisons noting this is for the more "serious" crowd. The more serious gamers, though casuals could potentially still play it. You'll know within 10 seconds which device is for you, or so they noted.
Still tracking all the news. I want to know how well Rising World shall run on it and other games. Its being speculated 'medium' graphics and settings. We shall see. Red51 also noted they haven't obtained any devkits, though may eventually obtain one if available. They want to make Rising World playable on it the best they can.
Or, to not mince words, just read Red51's response
Unfortunately it's still a bit difficult to give precise answers regarding Steam Deck, since there are no devkits available for us atm, but in general, it seems to be quite promising. Hardware specs are quite good for a handheld device. RAM and CPU are certainly sufficient for the new version. When it comes to the GPU though, it's a bit difficult to estimate its actual performance. It definitely meets the minimum requirements of RW, this is the only thing I can say about it at this stage.
We will definitely keep an eye on it and try to get a devkit once they're available. Basically it is our intention to support Steam Deck, but this depends on a few other aspects (mostly on the final performance of the Steam Deck). I hope we can share more information about that in a few months
