Steam Deck won’t make Nintendo Switch hardware mistake, says Valve


Valve’s Steam Deck looks a lot like a Nintendo Switch at a glance, which may cause nasty flashbacks for anybody who has had to deal with the dreaded ‘Joy-Con drift’ issue that became so severe it resulted in several lawsuits. In short, degradation of the analogue stick leads to ‘phantom movements’ where players move without any user presses.

Apparently, Valve has considered this problem when designing the Steam Deck, and was quite clear that reliability was a prime concern when asked about the potential for issues by IGN.
