Valve has deleted a Steam Deck promotional video – which, at the time of writing, can still be viewed embedded in this story – after eagle-eyed viewers spotted a Nintendo Switch emulator lurking in the library.
Yuzu is open-source and, crucially, legal, but as PC Gamer points out, emulation is a sticky topic for some, prompting Valve to upload an emulator-free version of the same video a short while later, which you can see below:
“Valves new official video for the Steam Deck has a very interesting game icon in it,” industry insider Nibel tweeted yesterday, before following up with: “Update: Valve has removed the original video and reuploaded a new one with a small difference.”

ICYMI, all three versions of the device – the £349 64GB model, the £459 256GB model, and the £569 512GB model – are available to purchase immediately in the UK without a reservation and with an estimated delivery time of 1-2 weeks. However, given that allocations have been per territory in the past, availability may differ from region to region.
For those unfamiliar, Steam Decks Docking Station, is, much like the dock for Nintendos Switch, a wired cradle that can be either used as a neater way to charge the device or as a means to connect it to a television for big-screen play.
