Two days ago, Valve announced their handheld device the Steam Deck. The pre-orders went live yesterday. Today they are already sold out for 2021
When Valve announced the Steam Deck last Thursday, a powerful handheld PC at a very decent price, the internet went wild. It’s no wonder, then, that pre-orders were pouring in when it went live last night. So popular, that Steam is already indicating that if you haven’t pre-ordered yet, you’ll have to wait until next year to get your hands on it. By the way, the pre-order list is not a sure buy: it is a registration for a queue, intended to prevent scalpers. Valve has indicated that the cheapest variant will not be available until the first quarter of 2022. The variant, which costs €529, will not be available until the second quarter of 2022. The most expensive variant – with 512GB storage space – will not be available until the third quarter of 2022.
Since it is a queue, it will certainly be the case that not everyone will buy a Steam Deck. Some will fail, leaving gaps. However, there is a very good chance that without last night’s registration you won’t find a Steam Deck under the Christmas tree this year.
What do you think of the Steam Deck: should Nintendo get wet?
