Phil Spencer, the CEO of Xbox, in a message on his official Twitter account revealed that he already owns a Steam Deck console, and after using it for a week he was delighted with the portable console, although the most interesting of all is that Xbox’s Cloud Gaming service included in the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, namely xCloud, worked quite well on the Steam Deck.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can already play a portion of their games on Android and iOS devices via the cloud, but the Steam Deck could offer an attractive solution for gaming on the go without having to worry about WiFi speed, as the console is powerful enough to not only depend on xCloud, which would mean playing all the games natively downloaded to the console and forget about depending on an Internet connection.

Additionally, Valve released the official promotional trailer for the console yesterday. This can be seen after reminding you of the specifications of the console.
