Steam Deck Pre-orders are Open; First Come, First Served

We can now reserve the Steam Deck console from Valve. We advise you to hurry, because the new hardware may sell out very quickly.

As announced yesterday, today at 10:00 AM PT, Valve started taking reservations for the portable console Steam Deck. We've already written about the device itself (see links below), so now we'll just focus on how to place a pre-order. It's definitely it's worth to hurry up, because even though safeguards against so-called scalpers have been introduced, "mobile PCs" can still sell out very quickly.

Reservations can be made here, only if you have a Steam account with at least one transaction made before June 2021 (this rule applies for the first 28 hours after the start of the pre-order). In order to "call dibs" on your Steam deck, a down payment of $5 will be required.

It is also worth knowing right away which model we want to purchase. A total of three versions of the console are available, differing in both price and specs. You can choose variants for $399, $529, and $649. More details can be found in our previous news (links above).

And now - first come, first served. We'd like to remind that you can reserve only one console on one Steam account, and the hardware will start shipping in December 2021.
