Join us on our own very special Reddit on /r/Linuxers.

Again and again Valve has managed to speed up production of the Steam Deck, so much so that for reservations the Q3 era is over. Valve said that everyone who was inside Q3, would have gotten their purchase invite email today and so they're now speeding onwards into the Q4 window.

The full announcement:

Hello, just a quick note about shipping today.

As some folks on the internet have noticed (we see you Reddit!), we're speeding through reservations at an accelerated pace. This is due to increased production, and we've beaten our own estimates yet again. With today’s batch of emails we’ve now sent invitations for all reservations in the Q3 (July-September) bucket.

Now that Q3 is done early, we're going to get a head start on the next set of reservations, and are fulfilling reservations that were scheduled for the Q4 window. We've updated the store page to reflect this, with an updated bucket description: September-December.

That's it for today, more to come soon!

As a reminder, if you do manage to miss your email and Steam app notification somehow, you can still speak to Steam Support as you have a few days grace period on it.

I wonder if the demand is going to keep up? How much of a marketshare it's going to reach?
I wanna see how the Steam hardware stats are looking now.

I'd rather they just come out and say how many have been sold !

Seeing how they are just beginning to release into new markets, I don't think demand will be a problem.

Wow great news!

I got my invitation for the 512GB version to Germany today at 20:42 CEST! Reserved on 2022-07-04. So this was way quicker than expected and now I'm eagerly waiting for it to arrive at my door :)
I'd like to see an easy way to set up Deck UI grid, background, logo and icon images for added non-steam games or flatpak apps. https://www.steamgriddb.com could be a source. Did someone try SGDBoop?

An auto-mounting USB stick setup (just like the sdcards) would be neat. I have USB-C to A adpators and underused USB sticks lying around.

SGDBoop works fine. I think it was in one of Liam's guides? I've used it for a few things: press the button on Steam Grid DB, pick the thing you want it applied to, job done.

I'm getting excited now, I reserved mine 2022-08-09! So there's a chance I could be getting an invitation in the next couple of weeks. I'm really looking forward to sitting on the porch and enjoying the sunshine while playing a few games.
