If you’re planning to book a Steam Deck and haven’t managed to book one yet, it looks like you’re waiting for a while to really get your device. According to the Steam store website, the $ 399 64GB Steam Deck and the 529,256GB version on Sunday have both expected orders for Q2 2022, which means sometime next spring. The 512GB $ 649 model is even later; it is expected to be available in the third quarter of next year, sometimes in July-September 2022.
According to the Steam website, it will send subscription invitations by the end of December this year. Steam will then convert the bookings into subscriptions.
Steam’s official Twitter account posted on Sunday that Steam Deck bookings were open to new Steam accounts as well as existing accounts. Valve just revealed its a portable PC gaming device on Thursday, but when it opened for bookings on Friday afternoon, many people received repeated error messages. By Ars Technica, Valve received more than 110,000 bookings for 256GB and 512GB devices in the first 90 minutes after orders were opened.
