If it’s true, it means that both configurations are close in price to Valve’s offerings, where the 256GB Steam Deck costs $530 and the 512GB Steam Deck costs $650. However, Valve also has a $399 Steam Deck with 64GB of eMMC storage, which enthusiasts often replace with an SSD.”
The original ROG Ally leak came from Best Buy, and it may be possible that Best Buy is the source of this one as well. The new pricing is similarly in dollars and cents, and Asus only has one stateside retail partner for the handheld. However, SnoopyTech has not responded to my DMs, so I cannot confirm.
This will likely be the cheapest configuration of the ROG Ally, although Asus may also release an eMMC model following Valve’s example.
