"Everyone who orders Steam Deck will get delivery this year"

“Everyone who orders Steam Deck will get delivery this year”

In July last year, Valve lifted the lid on its gaming-oriented portable Steam Deck, which was equipped, among other things, with an operating system based on Linux Arch, a slew of consoles and an AMD-signed system circuit. Steam Deck received an unexpectedly warm welcome, overloading the pre-booking system and huge queues.

Besides the component shortages, the result was queues that persist, but on its website, Valve now offers good news for anyone waiting to sink their teeth into the Steam Deck. The company announced that it was able to bypass the distribution chain earlier than expected. Thus, the production rate can be raised to new levels, which means bringing forward the expected delivery dates.

Valve writes that many of those with an estimated fourth-quarter delivery date can click the computer already booked during the third quarter—August or September. Reservations made now can now be delivered before the end of the year, but the company maintains the possibility that the waiting list will be full and extend into next year. In any case, the increased production rate indicates that Steam Deck can be purchased without a waiting period from 2023.
