The Steam Deck will be available for purchase without pre-order

It’s been just over a year since Valve first presented the Steam Deck, a handheld and game-oriented small computer with Linux Arch-based Steam OS and AMD-signed chipset. It proved to be a popular addition, but high demand combined with a complicated distribution chain resulted in an overloaded pre-booking system and long queues.

Valve has managed to graze that queue at a steady pace during the year and now it is announced that they are finally catching up. The end of the queue has been reached and the Steam Deck sale is open to everyone, with no reservation required. In addition, the Steam Deck is finally joined by the official docking station, which has also been delayed. It offers a bunch of different ports and connections and gets the price tag of 99 euros.


Valve follows with a fireside note that the pre-order system may be reintroduced, as they still have an upper limit on how many units they can produce, handle and deliver. Should so many orders come in that it exceeds what they can handle, a queue system can be formed again for one or more models, until they have taken care of all the orders.

Did you pre-order a Steam Deck, or will it be a buy now?
