Steam Deck Reservations Will All Be Fulfilled By The End Of This Year

People who made a reservation already will see the elusive PC handheld within 2023.


Very good news, folks. All people who currently have a reservation are guaranteed a Steam Deck by the end of the year. So if you're in Q3 or Q4, or were in the abyss beyond Q4, you'll get your order sooner than expected.

Everybody has also now been sorted in Q3 or Q4 tiers, with many reservations being brought up from Q3 to Q4.

Now Playing: Steam Deck - Everything To Know

As a reminder, Q3 is the July to September window. Q4 is the October to December window. You can check the details of your Steam reservation while logged in to your account.

Valve also says that new reservations made as of now will also get placed in Q4. Though that's not guaranteed if the number of new reservations exceed production capabilities.

Steam Deck comes in at three price points: 64GB for $400, 256GB for $529, 512GB (among other upgraded qualities) for $649. It's the perfect console to play Steam games on-the-go, especially if you have a massive backlog. Personally, I'd love to play my Steam games while lying down in a form of peak gamer laziness, so it's a joy to know the realization of this dream isn't too far off.

The Steam Deck released on February 25, but only the lucky few who got their preorders in very quickly received one at launch. After its release, the Steam Deck has been praised for its performance, convenience, and capabilities. Owners do report that the Deck is a little bit on the heavier side, but is likely the de facto handheld PC gaming console for many years to come.
