If this turns out to work effectively, then wow, PCVR just became mobile!
"In a recent interview with IGN, Newell stated that the Steam Deck would indeed be essentially just a mobile PC, capable of having other software installed on it, such as the Microsoft Store or Epic Games Store. Additionally, he dropped into the conversation that the Deck would also be compatible with the Oculus Quest VR headset. In the discussion, he said that he wanted the upcoming Valve device to not be some sort of "Trojan horse" that will have proprietary software that locks the user into using specific programs. He seems pleased that the Deck will be able to run numerous other software and hardware, including the Oculus."
It's very interesting and has great future implications for vr. But currently it will probably run the most basic vr. But many video podcast shows will try it. It will be very entertaining.
Yeah, at launch, this thing won't be pushing something like Alyx to our Quests with optimal performance. But this is just the start! In a few years... who knows. 😁
