The Steam Deck is very big. It is so big, in fact, that we’re pretty sure it could beat up your dad and also eclipse the sun without breaking a sweat. People have been having a lot of fun comparing the Large Lad to a bunch of much smaller things, and even some average size things.
The Steam Deck is bigger than a Nintendo Switch. We already knew that, of course, but it’s nice to see it from a different angle. It is even bigger than a Nintendo Switch with the Hori Split Pad Pro, which is impressive, because those things are also very big.
And, since we know you’re DYING to ask:
It is also bigger than the Switch OLED.
The Steam Deck is also a lot larger than the Wii U Gamepad, which is impressive, because the first time we held a Gamepad it felt like someone had accidentally handed us an entire car dashboard instead of a controller. But no; compared to the Steam Deck, the Gamepad is just a wee lad.
This one isn’t surprising, but the Steam Deck is bigger than a Game Boy Advance, and we’d be willing to bet that it’s also bigger than a Game Boy Advance SP, too. Not so “advance” now, are you? With your piddly buttons and your itty-bitty screens! The future is wide, boys.
Hm? What’s that? It is bigger than a Game Boy Advance SP? Even with the screen flipped open?!
Well, would ya look at that.
Finally, the Steam Deck is somehow exactly the same size as a Steam Deck.
Now you know.
What other objects do you think the Steam Deck is bigger than? Please keep your responses PG-13, or we will have to send the Steam Deck to have a word with your dad.
