I predict this will fail when they can't make very many due to supply constraints, just like MS and Sony face. In the end their defense will be "we didn't know it would be so popular".

It really depends on the selected hardware and how easy/cheap it is to produce said hardware. There's a reason the Switch and Series S are more readily available and it's not because people do not want either of those, but because they're easier, cheaper, and quicker to produce the parts for, so they do not suffer the same supply issues the PS5 and Series X are dealing with.

No one is going to buy this.

there's 115,000 preorders.

Double that number and you'll have the device's lifetime sales.

you said no one is going to buy this.

You said! You said so, see? You said it! lol

I don't think it will beat the Switch and I don't think it will sell as well as the PS5 or Xbox.

Maybe about 1 or 2 million in the first year. Then it will explode in sales if Valve delivers. This could be Valves "Sony Moment" when Sony entered the console market with PS1. If thare are minimum faults with the device then it will be a huge success.

Total Steam Deck Sales will be about 1% of total Switch sales. So about 1,5 million while Switch rockets to 150 million before it is discontinued in 2025.

It's a pointless system that will sell less than 500k and lose support in 2 years.
