Valve announced their portable PC gaming machine earlier this month and the interviews and details about the Steam Deck have been rolling in steadily since.

President and co-founder Gabe Newell says that the Deck began as a "natural conversation" about how Valve would contribute to PC gaming in the future, and also dished some of the early names from the Deck drawing board.

They start out by asking Newell about how conversations around the Steam Deck started.

Our Valve Index review calls their VR headset the gold standard, but earlier efforts like the Steam Controller and Steam Machine didn't earn any longevity in PC gaming.

"I think a lot of gamers have always felt that there's not a great mobile gaming hardware device out there for us to use," Newell says, referencing touch controls as not great for FPS games and the "proprietary direction" of other handheld devices.

As for other early days of the Steam Deck, naturally other names were in the hat before Deck won out.

Ubisoft, who've not been bringing new games to Steam in the last few years, say they'll consider bringing games to the Steam Deck if it's big
