The Steam Deck has been making its way into the hands of developers for a few months now, and details of their experiences with the unit have been scant. Mostly we’ve seen developers sharing gameplay of their titles on the deck, and it’s all been very promising. However, we rarely get any interesting intel from these posts, but sometimes something new slips through.
Last week, details emerged from an internal Steam developer’s forum regarding the Steam Deck’s default image and there was even a mention of the boot process becoming more polished. Now we’re able to see that boot process and out-of-box-experience in action.
Yesterday a development unit landed in the hands of Alex Koshelkov, Founder & CEO of Crytivo. He proclaimed via Twitter that “Christmas came early this year”. He then revealed the Deck’s OOBE.
