EmuDeck makes Steam Deck an emulation machine


For those lucky enough to have gotten their hands on Valve’s Steam Deck and have a hunger for some retro gaming goodness EmuDeck has you covered. EmuDeck is the answer for emulation gaming on Valve’s handheld.

Having done all work of having to set up the retro gaming emulators, it can organize everything from aspect ratios to hotkeys on the Steam Deck, while also downloading box art for all your legally obtained ROMs, and integrating everything into your Steam library.

As retro games become more in vogue, demand increases for consoles to offer backwards compatibility support and a multi gen library. The ROM-playing app offers a portable solution for everything from old school 8-bit Nintendo to PlayStation 3 without the need to download any emulators.

Putting aside the legality of ROMs, this is a fantastic app for the retro gamer on the go and with the Steam Decks tech specs being better than anything Nintendo and PlayStation currently offer. If your interested in the EmuDeck everything you need to know to get started can be found here.

Here’s a look at EmuDeck running on the Steam Deck, via YouTuber Retro Game Corps:


Valve’s recently launched Steam Deck is now available, and in three flavors: $399 (64GB), $529 (256GB), and $649 (512GB), over on the Steam store.
