^ Nah. As much as I love playing on the Steam Deck and its form factor, it isn't going to replace traditional consoles any time soon. There's so much you can do to advance tech and fit in a small 10-20W envelope. Its not really on par with a PS4. I'd say its closer to the Xbox One in performance due to its limited memory bandwidth (half of the PS4). But it targets a lower resolution so it does fine in 800P.

Its a great little console however and I've used mine more to game that all of my gaming stuff combined (PC and consoles). Nothing like having a device you can just pick up and play and resume any time I want, with my Steam library.
