Steam deck

In mid-November, Valve gave bad news for those who wanted to enjoy a Steam deck: its release was going to be delayed. The reason they gave was “material shortage”, and it should not be too surprising since, at the very least, it is currently difficult to get processors whatever device they are going to be mounted on. At the time they said that the console would arrive in February, and now we also know the day.

It will be in a little less than a month. so what They have published on the Steam Store, ensuring that the 25 February will send the first emails to start the orders. Therefore, the 25th will be the day on which the procedures can begin, but the consoles will still take a little longer to reach the hands of the first lucky ones.

Steam Deck, an ambitious console that can change things

Valve says that users who receive the mail will have three days to place the order. After that time, the reservation will be lost and will go to the next person in the queue. The first units will start shipping from the day 28, and the waiting time will depend on the destination to which the console is sent.

It is also important to note that no changes can be made to the reservation that was done at the time, that is, if the cheapest one with the slowest disk was reserved, that will be the one that should be ordered. If, on the other hand, someone reserved a more expensive one, regrets it and wants a smaller one, the only option is not to go ahead with the order and place another one, knowing that they will be the last in the queue.

The Steam Deck is a Valve console that is initially designed to play Steam titles and the operating system will be Arch Linux with Plasma-based interface, but, due to its components more similar to those of a PC, other systems, such as Windows, can be installed on it.
