Valve’s ‘SteamPal’ handheld PC could be a Switch killer — here’s why

12

The Nintendo Switch could have a new rival. Steam’s parent company looks to be developing a pocket size gaming PC, which could challenge Nintendo’s hegemony of the hybrid handheld space. The “SteamPal” wouldn’t be the first handheld gaming PC, but it would be the only one with Valve’s explicit stamp of approval and deliver high-end PC games on-the-go.

Ars Technica revealed the SteamPal in an exclusive report, citing “multiple sources familiar with the matter,” Steam’s own database code and a talk that Valve co-founder Gabe Newell gave in early May. While we don’t know whether Steam’s purported handheld will ever reach consumer hands, it seems safe to say that something is definitely in the works.
