Handheld gaming is far from new – it's been 35 years since the first Gameboy came out after all – but the technology is changing and advancing all the time.


PC gamers especially have seen huge strides being made over the last few years, with a huge range of handheld devices coming out from different computer and gaming brands. Most notably, the Steam Deck.

This product first emerged from Valve in 2022, loaded up with all the games and functions of the Steam cloud gaming service. Before long, they followed up with the Steam Deck OLED, which is now available in three models.

But sadly, like with all games consoles, the Steam Deck isn't cheap, which is where we come in.

Below, you'll find a list of the very best Steam Deck deals, across different models and accessories.

What is the Steam Deck?

The Steam Deck is a handheld device for PC gamers, featuring games from the online platform, Steam.

The device first came out in 2022, shortly followed by an OLED version last December – which RadioTimes.com gave five stars in our 'Is it worth it?' review.

The first editions of the Steam Deck came in 64GB and 512GB LCD but these were discontinued in 2023. Now, you can buy it in 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB OLED versions from Steam and a range of other retailers.

Which Steam Deck should I get?

The main point of difference between the Steam Deck models is storage, so all you really need to ask yourselves is: how many games will I want to download?

The handheld comes with either 256GB, 512GB and 1TB options.
