If you’re looking to reserve a Steam Deck and haven’t been able to secure a reservation yet, it looks like you’ll be waiting a while to get your device. According to Steam’s Sunday store site, the $ 399, 64GB Steam Deck and the $ 529 256GB version both have “expected order availability” dates of Q2 2022, which means next spring. The 512 GB model at $ 649 is even newer; it shows the expected availability in the third quarter of next year, which is between July and September 2022.
According to the Steam website, it plans to send order invitations by December of this year. Steam will then convert reservations into orders.
The official Steam Twitter account posted sunday that reservations for Steam Deck were open to new Steam accounts as well as existing accounts. Valve only revealed its portable PC gaming device on Thursday, but when it opened for bookings on Friday afternoon, many people received repeated error messages. According to Ars Technica, Valve secured more than 110,000 reservations for 256 GB and 512 GB devices in the first 90 minutes of order opening.
