Valve confirms Steam Deck to go on sale from February 25

28 January 2022 0

The long wait for the Steam Deck handheld gaming console is all set to be over. Valve has officially confirmed that Steam Deck will go on sale starting February 25th. The Nintendo Switch competitor was originally unveiled in July 2021 with a release set for the year-end. This did not happen due to supply issues and the launch was pushed back by two months i.e. February 2022.

All those who reserved their Steam Deck units will receive purchase invites via email. Valve says it will begin sending those invites shortly after 10:00 AM PST on February 25th. These invites will be sent in batches and in the same order as reservations were made. Each user will have 72 hours to make the purchase from the receipt of the order email. If someone misses the deadline, the invite will be given to the next buyer in the queue.

All buyers will be able to purchase only the Steam Deck model they registered for. The blog post further reveals that the registration deposit amount will be deducted from the final amount to be paid during checkout. Each order will have shipping costs included as well. The team will start shipping the first batch of units from February 28th.
