Can Steam Deck succeed where the Machines failed? | Podcast

Latest episode available now, also offers a breakdown of this year's conflict mineral report

The GamesIndustry.biz team gathers behind their mics to discuss the biggest story of the week: the Steam Deck.

With Valve's long-rumoured Switch-like handheld gaming PC finally unveiled, we discuss our reactions to the reveal and who the audience for this device might be.

We also explore the possibilities for indie developers -- or, indeed, any developers -- and the potential for Steam Deck to introduce a new route into the PC games market in a way that has not been seen in years.

In the last segment of this week's show, Brendan offers a breakdown of this year's report on the use of conflict minerals in the games industry. You can find the full report here

Title music composed by Thomas Marchant. Episode mastered by Thomas Quillfeldt.
