Does the Steam Deck have too little internal space? Here are the first details

The arrival of Steam Deck is now imminent. After the postponement in recent months, the first units are in fact expected by February 2022. And while some games such as DOTA 2 begin to update to be playable at best with the possibilities of Valve's hardware, some information emerges that could cause concern. users who have decided to buy the model with the lowest memory size, that is the 64GB one.

And according to what has emerged online, the version that will be included within the new hardware will be around 10GB heavy. Those who bought the 64GB model will therefore find themselves with about 15% of the space occupied.

Obviously we do not want to cause alarmism, but it is better to arrive prepared for the launch. So the solution for anyone who has decided to buy the 64GB version of Steam Deck is to look at the memory card market.

The case of Steam Deck though it is perfectly in line with the other consoles. Xbox Series X | S and Playstation 5 for example require 20% of the internal space for their operating systems. The PC, notebook and desktop, is then an even more expensive situation, with Windows that can require 20GB upwards to be installed. In short, nothing to worry about but maybe it's better to get ready for day one, don't you think?
