The Steam Deck is a beautiful piece of tech, why not show it off with a new transparent back shell replacement from Jsaux.
I am a massive fan of transparent shells, going all the way back to classic Game Boy devices.
So anytime a modern handheld console is offered in transparent, you know I’m all over it.
It is a bit of a bummer that the Steam Deck and the Analogue Pocket didn’t offer transparent models, because both feature some stunning hardware inside those opaque shells.
Jsaux Steam Deck Shell Replacement
If you’ve been hoping to get a view of those beautiful internal components of your Steam Deck, the wait is over, as we now have a DIY shell replacement (back only) from Jsaux.[Is that pronounced “Jay Socks”, “Jay Soaks” or “Jay Sucks”?]
For the modest price of $29.99usd, you can grab your own transparent back shell for the Steam Deck.
Tough to say if we’ll be seeing a front shell. I’d imagine it’s too difficult to change it out, that’s probably why it’s not included in this kit.
But if we can get the back, that’s good enough for me! That’s where you’re gonna see the most tech.
This is a product you need to install yourself, so best for those with a little modding experience. You should give an old Game Boy a go, if you’ve got no experience.
Jsaux even throw in some pretty cool rear paddle button replacements, offering three different button heights. This alone is a welcome upgrade for the Steam Deck.
Not much else to say about it, but we love to keep y’all updated on all of the cool stuff coming out in 2023 for our handheld game consoles.
Jsaux offers a bunch of other awesome Steam Deck accessories, so go fill up your shopping cart.
