I am really looking forward to all of this goodness coming to the desktop. I use Steam exclusively in big picture mode on my TV, and while it works fine, there is definitely place for improvements.
I have almost decided to get a Steam Deck, but that's quite a chunk of change to throw down.
What's Steam Deck Rewards? Haven't heard that term before.

For stuff like the exclusive keyboard themes or profile stuff depending on what model you buy.

The back-order is likely 6+ months at this stage........

Still not available outside of US/UK/CA

I got mine on Monday and I feel like it was a steel. I'm really really happy with this device. I was in week 3 and a lot of the problems I heard of had already vanished before. The pace is just crazy.

Those 5 bucks to reserve one are certainly worth it. You may still decide to get them back any time, but I'd be surprised. This thing is getting better and better.

And the rest.

People who put their reservations in within the first hour have still got 4-5 months to wait till they get theirs. Then there's an additional eight months of people making reservations in the queue ahead of anyone that's only getting round to making their reservation today.

"6+ months" is really understating it.

Available in the EU too

But long back order indeed, since I'm stupid I only pre ordered it at Christmas 2021 (why didn't I pre order day 1 ? Beats me) and I'm after Q3. I'm betting on a one year wait between placing my order and getting it

I preordered like a week ago, after seeing all those articles. Stupid me. It's not like you're forced to buy it when your time comes...! "After Q3" now.
