Last year I put in my $5 deposit for a Steam Deck. Valve was so overwhelmed that day that I couldn’t get my order to accept until late in the afternoon. That put me at the end of the order queue and I’ve been waiting ever since.
Valve has promised me Q2 availability which ends in 3 days. Will they make it? The answer is yes!
A few hours after I tweeted about this I got my confirmation!
