Where’s your Steam Deck preorder electronic mail? Valve explains
Valve’s $400-and-up transportable gaming PC the Steam Deck went on sale this morning… however you didn’t get an electronic mail from Valve, I’m guessing? I didn’t both — and as Valve’s simply now explaining, that’s as a result of they’re going out in small batches relatively than ; the subsequent batch received’t be arriving till Monday, March seventh; after which they’ll exit in weekly batches every Monday, presumably by means of the month of June.
Did you will have a reservation for Q1 2022? You ought to see your electronic mail by the top of March. Q2 2022? They’ll begin in April, after I’ll hopefully get mine since I ordered on the very first day (however who is aware of, the reservation web site had loads of hassle that morning).
And in case your reservation says “After Q2 2022,” Valve says keep tuned for “information quickly.” Perhaps which means they’ll cease delivery weekly at that time? Valve’s Q3 would usually run July by means of September.
The excellent news: Valve received’t ship you an invitation till your unit is definitely able to ship, you’ll get 72 hours to finish the acquisition, your $5 reservation payment counts towards the sale, and also you received’t should pay something additional for delivery — it’s included. You will, nonetheless, should determine for those who’re concerned with turning into an early adopter. Like I clarify in my Steam Deck overview, it’s principally an early entry sport console.
