Steam Deck Announced

Valve officially announces the Steam Deck, a handheld gaming PC that was been the subject of recent rumors. Preorders start tomorrow at USD$399, and units will start shipping in December. Here's more on the Steam Deck, which features an AMD processor and a 7" touchscreen:
Valve announces Steam Deck, the first in a new category of handheld PC gaming devices starting at $399.

Steam Deck is a powerful all-in-one portable PC. With a custom processor developed in cooperation with AMD, Steam Deck is comparable to a gaming laptop with the ability to run the latest AAA games. Your Steam library will be on Deck to play games wherever and whenever you want. Steam Deck is also an open PC, adding the ability to install any software or connect with any hardware.

"We think Steam Deck gives people another way to play the games they love on a high-performance device at a great price," says Valve founder Gabe Newell. "As a gamer, this is a product I've always wanted. And as a game developer, it's the mobile device I've always wanted for our partners."

Steam Deck starts at $399, with increased storage options available for $529 and $649. Reservations open July 16th at 10 AM PDT; shipping is slated to start in December 2021.

Steam Deck details:

  • Powerful, custom APU developed with AMD
  • Optimized for hand-held gaming
  • Full-sized controls
  • 7" touchscreen
  • WiFi and Bluetooth ready
  • USB-C port for accessories
  • microSD slot for storage expansion
  • 3 different storage options available

This is neat. Now someone other than Steam make it please because I ain't ever gonna buy any hardware from Steam again.

Also where the frigging fuck is steam controller 2.0
If you're never going to buy another piece of steam hardware ever again why do you care if they make Steam controller 2.

Who said I would buy it from Steam?

Legit never going to buy hardware directly on steam ever again. Worst purchase experience of my life, with every single hardware order. That's a new record. I blacklist companies for less, sadly I can't do that with steam now can I.. but I can be salty AF ^^

Got my 512gb reserved. Think I was one of the first. Was lucky to have money in my steam wallet. No idea where I can check my ETA (anyone?). Should be December!
I read the 512 GB ones don't arrive until Q2.

All of them? Even if you were "one of the first" to reserve? That would be weird if they at first mention December for all 3 🤔

I can reserve now for delivery in the second quarter of 22. Is that what everybody else got?
Expected order availability: Q2 2022
Welp, there goes my eBay idea.
Bummer, you could have made a fortune by scalping the reservation.

I had the same experience as chickenboo - the site kind of went down for a little while, then the reservation steps were all a bit slow/wonky but eventually it worked OK. I reserved the 256GB version - wanted the NVMe SSD but didn't want to pay the higher price for the 512GB version (which is also coming out later).

The 512GB version is not coming out later, it's just apparently the most limited and/or popular one and so the reservations they're taking now aren't expected to be met until Q2 of next year (the other two versions are currently at Q1 2022). All three had initial availability for December, but that allotment was gone pretty quickly.

Just placing the $5 reservations has pretty much shut down the Steam store for 10 minutes so far, lol.
This is the message i got.
Your account is too new to reserve early.
Guess I'll wait for the OLED version with larger battery and faster apu. Oh wait, this is valve, they'll never have a ver. 2.0
Your account didn't exist before June 2021?

Yeah, that's an anti-scalper measure. First 48 hours of reservations are for existing accounts that have made a purchase before last month. Although I honestly wouldn't be shocked if the store had wrongfully spit out that error message at some point under the extreme load.

Ah, I see. I did think I saw December as the launch date. Oh well, at least I got in line and will hopefully be getting mine in Q1. Thanks for the info!

I wouldn't risk it. It's a new unproven product. It's not like a PS5 or Xbox Series X.
