As of now, its assumed that this handheld steam gaming device should be ready by 2015. As of now, there’s only an E3 teaser video.

A representative mentioned that SteamBoy won’t be as powerful as Steam Machines in the same way Nintendo 3DS and PS VITA’s performance cannot be compared with Wii U or PlayStation 4.
