the games shown in the tests ran on microSD

While Steam Deck pre-orders have now been open to any Valve client user, players’ questions are growing, many of whom are undecided on which model to buy due to the different types of memory fitted. However, it seems that microSD support works particularly well, at least according to one of the developers.

In fact, many people asked Lawrence Yang, the product designer of the Valve portable console, what were the possible problems in using games installed on a microSD and not in the fast memory included in the 256GB and 512GB models. The developer’s response was decidedly unexpected, as Yang confirmed that all the games shown in the IGN video preview (Control and Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order above all) were not installed in the internal memory but were running from the microSD. Such a statement does not entirely satisfy users who are curious to find out what are the differences in terms of loading times between the various memories, but it is enough to make them understand how you can play without problems even using the small external support.

Pending further details on the performance of games on microSD, we remind you that the scalpers have begun to storm the Steam Deck as well.
