Examination of the steam bridge

Steam Deck reviews have arrived, and when we got our hands on the large (hard to hold) handset, we were downright impressed.

“The most innovative thing to happen to PC gaming for as long as we can remember, Steam Lid is great hardware,” our author said in his review. “Limited battery life is a huge hurdle for anyone planning a long-haul flight in the near future, but in most use cases, having to wear your palm every few hours is a disadvantage rather than a deciding factor.”

Aggressively priced, fully moddable, and with all the weight of the Steam library behind it, Valve’s flagship handheld feels like the start of a new generation of PC gaming.

Why is the PS5 Digital Edition harder to find than the Disc Edition?

Earlier this month, smith toys restocked the PS5 console as a digital release, but in February it was the only retailer to do so. If you’ve been following our stock updates for a while, you’ve probably noticed that purchasing the PS5 disc edition console is much easier than the digital edition.

It’s been like this since the console was released in 2020. eurogamer talked to sources Various retailers reportedly allocated approximately 25% Digital Edition consoles and 75% Disc Edition consoles to retailers prior to the console’s release.

We don’t know if the situation has changed since then, but we’re still seeing fewer digital publishing consoles crash than disc publishing consoles. Retailers may also choose to order on a disc edition console rather than digital: They cost more for one (£449.99) and can bundle it with physical games for paying a premium.

Even though Sony has created a lighter PS5 console, it still seems harder to find the digital version than the disc.
