As expected, the price of the Steam Deck in the Philippines is higher than global retail SRPs, which isn’t surprising given the supply chain issues and a shortage in stock that plague the device.
For comparison, the Steam Deck in the US retails for USD 399 for the 64GB option (around ₱22,300), USD 529 for the 256GB option (₱29,500), and USD 649 for the 512GB option (₱36,200).
To recap, the Steam Deck handheld console has a large 7-inch touchscreen IPS display, powered by an AMD APU based on the Zen 2 architecture with a GPU based on the RDNA2 architecture and 16GB LPDDR5 RAM.
For controls, the Steam Deck is equipped with a d-pad, two analog sticks, shoulder trigger buttons, and ABXY buttons. There are also programable buttons at the back and two square touchpads in front.
The handheld console runs on Arch Linux-based SteamOS 3.0. For game compatibility, you can check Steam Deck’s compatibility page.
