The Asian country’s market is dominated by consoles, but the PC is growing very fast these years.
Little did we discover at this point: Steam Deck is becoming one of the greatest successes of Valve, the fathers of Half-Life, allowing you to enjoy a wide range of PC video games from the comfort of portable hardware. Such a premise has helped him to gain a foothold in the lives of many Western players, but he also aspires to get into the complicated japanese market.
The device is not yet available for purchase in Japan, but its local distributors hope to be able to ship the first reservations before the end of the year. About these, in statements to the specialized portal AUTOMATON, they comment that they are higher than initial expectationsalthough they ruled out giving numbers.
Japan has historically been a territory dominated by consoles, why launch Steam Deck there? Erik Peterson, from Valve, answered this question in his talk with the local media, explaining that, despite this situation, the Asian country is one of the fastest growing markets for PC gaming in the worldas well as the cradle of portable hardware, so they had to be there.
Likewise, Peterson recalled the wide presence of video games developed in Japan among the assortment of proposals available on Steam, which will undoubtedly make it easier for the public to enjoy many of their favorite proposals from the first moment.
Leaving the Far East behind, it is becoming easier to get your hands on a Steam Deck thanks to increased production of the device. The good news is also in its support, where 5,000 video games are already compatible with the machine.
