Even more Steam Deck purchase invites are going out from now

By - | Views: 19,371

Valve has confirmed that they are (again) increasing the amount of people that will be invited to purchase a Steam Deck.

Writing on Twitter, the official OnDeck account mentioned:

Hi all, just a quick note that starting with this morning's batch of Steam Deck order invites, we've increased the number of emails we're sending out (again). We're excited to get more of these into your hands! (Order emails are sent out Monday and Thursday mornings PT)

So keep your eyes peeled on your emails around 5-6PM UTC, if you're waiting for that precious invite to come in so you can spend those big bucks on a Steam Deck.

This comes after they mentioned recently that production has sped up, so all previous reservations would come this year and the expansion into Asia.

For newer users, be sure to check out my Steam Deck tips article and video to get you started.

Quoting: MohandevirThis device is just fabulous. It's been over a month since I got it and my desktop has been collecting dust ever since. I don't feel I'll get tired of it, anytime soon. Completed HZD on SD. Rediscovered Blaze Rush which I resumed and finished. Just started new Tomb Raider, Grid (2019) and Witcher 3 runs... Lots of emulation too (never did that much emulation, even with my Rpi). The form factor is just a perfect match, for me. I'm not tied to my desk anymore (which I started to dislike, after long work hours) and not limited by the availability of my living room. Whenever I want, wherever I want, Whatever I want. On top of that SteamOS is so comfy to use... Wow!

Happy to hear that those that didn't get it yet will get it even faster. Thanks Valve!
Just I recived the email yesterday.
Hope I'll find as useful as you. I have bad experience with the n switch, as I have "big hands".
But the deck it's much more versatile.

I can't say if it will be big enough (all hands are not the same), but it's similar to holding my Steam Controller... With a screen in the middle. It's bigger and a lot more comfortable than my son's Switch Lite, for sure!

I confirmed and purchase mine 5 days ago. Is there a way to check the order status? Will they send a tracking number for recipients to track (in general but specifically to Canada)?
