technically i played god of war chains of olympus etc on my psp so that was the first handheld that played owned and developed by sony to play god of war.
lol technically I was talking about the same God of War that was released for a console i.e. God of War 2018. But since you mentioned Chains of Olympus, worth pointing out that Steam Deck will be the only handheld where you can play all God of War games 🙂

This is kinda unfair. That other handheld, even if it ever gets the same fighting games, doesn't even have a DPAD 🤣

Someone has spotted a UI update to Half-Life 2 for the Steam Deck that can tested on desktop as well.

Ah yes, let the handheld expert share his insight on handheld gaming devices 🤣

This behemoth has a bigger footprint than a lot of tablets 🤦‍♂️:LOL:

I'm not looking for that sort of convenience. Most of my time spent on the Switch is in docked mode 🤷‍♂️
Yeah, but I carry it over to other places to play in docked mode.
Ah yes, let's listen to the pocket expert who uses Switch in docked mode 🤣

What's the next terrible take on your agenda CerebralTiger? Laptops aren't portable because you can't fit them in your pocket? 🤦‍♂️🤣

This behemoth doesn't even come with a dock. Good thing for Necrokiller that he already has a spare one lying around for whatever reason 🤣

Gaming laptops are pretty bulky and a chore to carry around, even in a bag 🤷‍♂️:LOL:

Why does it have to come with a dock when it is supposed to be a handheld device? Does the Switch Lite come with a dock? Whats with these daft takes? 🤣

Not sure how old CerebralTiger's bulky gaming laptop is but even my non gaming laptop came with a usb-C adapter 🤷‍♂️🤣

Post meri quote ki jis mein dock mentioned hai as a preference, then calling it daft when I point out there's no dock with the Deck. That's an approach 🤣

The lack of modularity really hurts this behemoth of a device. No way to detach the left and right controllers means you can't:

- use it as a table-top device (without carrying an extra controller)
- use 3rd party options (it's good to have options)
- replace faulty buttons/sticks without opening up the thing (the Steam controller's build quality is quite reassuring /s)

🤷‍♂️:LOL:

We can also conclude, based on CerebralTiger's logic, that lack of CPU/GPU/RAM upgradeability really hurts the behemoth of PS5/XSX consoles :ROFLMAO:

    Does anyone know how to buy games online on switch? My cousin got a switch and wants to buy animal crossing but I dont know jack shit about nintendo consoles. It woudlnt let me access the shop cause it says the service is not available in this region.
    Just change the region to US on the console, no need for a VPN. @SolitarySoldier pretty much explained the rest.

    Change account region/location to the US, buy Nintendo eShop credit from Daraz or wherever, redeem it and buy the game on Nintendo .com (or directly on Switch in eShop).
