Valve’s handheld gaming PC could take on the Nintendo Switch

Although gaming handhelds have been around since the days of the Nintendo Game Boy, the Nintendo Switch definitely kicked up interest by a notch, revealing a potentially profitable market for portable devices that can run AAA titles, even in medium or low settings only. That, in turn, has created a series of devices and concept designs inspired by the Switch, except running PC hardware and PC games instead. Given that trend, it's not surprising to hear that Valve, best known for the Steam PC gaming platform, is planning to jump into that fray and no later than the end of this year even.

Smach Z gaming PC handheld becomes another cautionary tale

There is no shortage of gaming handhelds today running a full Windows 10 OS, at least if you know where to look. From the GPD WIN 3 to the AYA Neo to the new ONEXPLAYER, there are now a few choices when it comes to bringing your PC games with you on the go. Back in 2014, however, that idea was revolutionary and a small team tried to make that happen before anyone else did. Of course, the Smach Z went via the crowdfunding route and, while it was successfully funded, it has now become yet another anecdote on how such dreams not only fail but also deprive people of their hard-earned money.

Fall Guys Season 4.5’s long list of new features includes cross-play

Fall Guys Season 4.5’s long list of new features includes cross-play

You don't have to be developed by a large, famous game company to make it big in the industry. You just need unique and addictive elements to get people, sometimes even politicians, hooked. Indie titles like Among Us and Fall Guys definitely aren't your cookie-cutter triple-A games but they still rake in hundreds if not thousands of faithful players. For Fall Guys, those players have been segmented into their respective platforms but starting with Season 4.5 "Dave", they'll finally be able to play with and against each other.

ONEXPLAYER gaming PC handheld comes with a bigger screen

Handheld gaming computers are nothing new and there have been quite a few models from different companies, most of them hailing from China, for almost every generation of Intel processors.

Unsurprisingly, there have also been new attempts at putting that Intel chip into more portable forms, and the ONEXPLAYER is not only the latest but also the biggest in that category.

PC market showed its fastest growth in 20 years

For years, analysts and market watchers have considered the PC market to be on its way out. Just like with almost anything in the world, the COVID-19 pandemic threw everything into chaos. No industry was left unscathed but some seem to have also benefited from that in the long run. The PC market, both ironically and unsurprisingly, is one of those and it just recorded its highest shipment numbers and fastest growth in the first quarter of 2021 compared to almost two decades of stagnation and dwindling sales.
