It's not all bad news, in fact, it shouldn't be seen as bad news at all, first of all what's going on?
Steam Deck Gaming Ltd has changed name, so it is now Games In Hand Ltd.
It is a UK Ltd company that keeps everything in order across YouTube, socials, and our website.
First of all, just the company name has changed, the main YouTube channel is not changing at this time, although we may look at rebranding under the name Deck in Hand or something in future, but that is all.
Why the change?
We have struggled for some time to shake the notion of being officially affiliated with Steam over our naming, and also, as the Steam Deck is still a very small market segment, just having the name puts publishers and companies in a spin when speaking to us.
A bigger part of the change, though, is because we have branched out to other handheld devices to expand our reach and also to be able to compare the Steam Deck with as the handheld market is exploding.
Lastly, YouTube is punishing multiple videos per day and variety content channels, so we are splitting things up so that people only get the content they want and YouTube doesn't suppress videos if we release ones for different devices close together.
You may have seen some new channels being shared recently, and also the team has doubled in size (it's now 2 people, Marchief and Ace).

Claw In Hand - This will be home to all the MSI Claw related news and testing as we learn more about the device and when the launch arrives.
We are focussing on the Steam Deck, ROG Ally, Legion Go, and MSI Claw as these are from hugely well-known manufacturers and have limited resources. The Release schedule for AYANEO and ONE-NETBOOK products is too much for us to handle currently, but we may look at devices occasionally and, if there is enough interest, start covering them more regularly.
