The Steam Deck is Valve’s attempt at making a portable console that players can take anywhere, which (very obviously) runs approved Steam titles. Purchasing the console would lead to buyers reserving it, and needing to wait until it’s shipped. Well, on that front, Valve’s put out an update for countries that can, in fact, reserve and buy the console.
In a blog post on Steam, Valve mentions that production is actually going faster than expected and will move some reservations up. Some of the Q4 2022 (October 2022 ~ December 2022) reservations will be moved up to Q3 (July 2022 ~ September 2022). That means that you may very well get your console sooner than initially anticipated.
The blog post continues, as well. Everyone else beyond Q4 2022 has been moved back into the Q4 2022 timeframe, and newer reservations will be in that Q4 2022 timeframe. If queues become too extreme for this window, then some reservations will overflow into Q1 of 2023 (January 2023 ~ March 2023).
Players will be able to visit the Steam Deck website to check their reservation status, and if you haven’t ordered one yet, you can do so there as well. Three bundles will be available to new buyers, which can be seen below:
- 64GB eMMC - includes the console and a carrying case (priced at $399.99)
- 256GB NVMe SSD - includes the console but with faster storage than the former, the carrying case, and an exclusive Steam Community profile bundle (priced at $529.99)
- 5126GB NVMe SSD - this version includes the fastest available storage for the Steam Deck (and the console also has premium anti-glare etched glass), the carrying case, an exclusive Steam Community profile bundle, and an exclusive virtual keyboard theme (priced at $649.99)
