Keep an even closer eye on your inbox, as Valve has announced that we might see reservation emails for the Steam Deck go out twice a week sometimes now.
Each Monday is the usual day for new emails to go out, so people sitting waiting can finally put their Steam Deck order through. That might change some weeks, as Valve explained on Twitter today:
Welcome to Q2! We've just sent out the first set of order emails to Q2 reservers (in order of reservation time). Starting today we're ramping up Steam Deck shipments, and will be sending more order availability emails every week. Sometimes even twice a week!
Update: in a reply to someone it was clarified as Monday and Thursday.
Since people were getting confused somehow on what a quarter is during a year, Valve also a little while ago updated the Steam Deck page to show the months in brackets for when you can expect an email to come through. A refresher as apparently some people need it:
- January, February, and March (Q1)
- April, May, and June (Q2)
- July, August, and September (Q3)
- October, November, and December (Q4)
Really good to know Valve are able to ramp up production now, as they did say previously they were expecting hundreds of thousands from this month onwards.
