The Steam Deck was released some time ago now, but people are still putting it to the test with all sorts of retro video games and emulators.

Youtube channel Modern Vintage Gamer previously investigated OG Xbox emulation running Valve's system, and now he's back with Xbox 360. The Xenia Canary emulator just got a "massive" update - offering up some performance improvements.

Using Xenia on the SteamDeck, he confirms it all runs pretty nicely - you can take a look at games such as Burnout, Fable 2 and Forza Horizon 2. Even Perfect Dark Zero gets some love:

MVG sums up the whole experience of having Xbox 360 games running on the Steam Deck as "just amazing to see" and he intends to continue to cover future improvements.
