eBay is flooded with Steam Deck dealers, prices are astronomical

Last week, Valve unveiled a new handheld with the not-so-successful name Steam Deck. But what worked was the specifications and the price. The portable console immediately caught the eye of players who showed quite high interest. Of course, this was immediately used by dealers offering a pre-ordered Steam Deck on the eBay platform.

Nowadays, it is no surprise that resellers grab virtually every new hardware on the market. The Steam Deck from Valve is no exception. When introducing the console, the company defended itself against bots and resellers, at least by limiting the age of the account. At the start of the sale, Steam Deck was only purchased from a user account at least a few days old. We can only speculate how many shoes this barrier stopped in the first days. Nevertheless, the interest was enough to drop the whole Steam for a few minutes and the orders themselves were unavailable to many people in the opening hours.

Nevertheless, even after the weekend, Steam Deck can be booked with a delivery date around the first quarter of next year.

Even the fact that the console is still relatively easily accessible did not deter dealers. The eBay portal is currently being filled with ads selling a confirmed pre-order of Steam Deck. Directly in the title, they attract a delivery identical to the one currently shown by Steam.

Prices are as high as five thousand dollars. Given the theoretical availability of the console on Steam, it would be strange for someone to buy the console at this price on eBay.

The cheapest Steam Deck with 64GB of eMMC memory will sell for 420 euros, in terms of around 11 thousand crowns. Although the price exceeds, for example, the recently introduced Nintendo Switch OLED, compared to other handhelds, it is still a friendly price tag due to the specifications.
