Valve shows off Steam Deck's cute carry case (and the cardboard box everything comes in) -

Ordinarily this is the point where I just cram my new purchase into a sock with a resigned sigh and have done with it, but Valve has you covered as far as Steam Deck goes, and has offered a look at the cute little carry case all units of its handheld gaming PC will ship with.

We've already seen a fair amount of Steam Deck in the run up to its release - including a peek at its innards and the categorisation system Valve is employing so purchasers know exactly what is and isn't compatible with their new device on Steam - but the company's latest update is all about what's on the outside.

Specifically, the various bits of packaging Steam Deck will come in.

Valve Steam Deck Spec Analysis: Can It Really Handle AAA PC Gaming?

First, there's the cardboard box itself, a snug bit of packaging that keeps unused space to a minimum.

Then, once you've removed the bit of paper explaining how to plug your Steam Deck in and turn it on, you'll spy the supplied power adapter - complete with companion cube cameo - and come eye-to-plastic-lump with the handheld itself.

Hurl all that out the window (actually, probably don't) and you'll be greeted by Steam Deck's curvaceous carry case, included with every purchase.

It's pretty stylish in its own understated way - certainly full marks for the tastefully minimalist branding - with innards carefully molded to Steam Deck's form factor, snugly holding it all in place.

According to Valve, the unit shown in its post is actually a design validation manufacturing build of Steam Deck, which will be used for additional testing and to send out as developer kits.

"DV is the final prototype build before production," Valve explains, "and it includes improvements from the EV2 build.

After this build, there will be additional minor changes in the final product.".

The packaging, however, should be more or less as it will appear when customers start to receive their units in February next year.

That release date is a little later than originally planned of course, with Valve ultimately opting to delay Steam Deck's 2021 launch into next year as a result of "material shortages".

PlayStation reportedly taking on Xbox Game Pass with new subscription service in spring.
