Steam Deck now in stock across Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan

By - | Views: 31,278

Komodo PR sent word that there's no longer a reservation queue to purchase a Steam Deck across Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, and Taiwan.

Originally, much like the western launch of the Steam Deck, you had to wait in queue until it was your turn to purchase due to stock levels. Now, that's mostly no longer the case. The only one that isn't in stock is the 64GB model specifically in Japan, where Komodo said it was "backordered at this time" so it's obviously been a bit too popular there.

Komodo states they've seen "high demand", and the official Docking Station is still in a reservation queue for Japan and Taiwan but is in stock for Hong Kong and South Korea.

Anyone who purchases an in-stock item will have it shipped within two weeks of the purchase, while out of stock in the reservation queue will be filled as "quickly as possible" with emails inviting you to purchase going as soon as they're available in the order reservations were made.

You can order a Steam Deck from Valve's partner Komodo across Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, and Taiwan.

Nice to see that the Asian markets are reacting well to the Steam Deck, let's hope it keeps up so more people can appreciate just how good Linux can be for gaming. I expect this year we will see Valve announce new regions too, further expanding the reach of the Steam Deck.

Be sure to follow me on YouTube for various Steam Deck and Linux videos.

Seems like the total sales are reaching numbers where studios can't ignore the Deck (and thus Linux) anymore. That's great!

When I saw the headline I was wondering if that was good news because production was robust, or bad news because people weren't ordering enough in Asia to sell out the supply. But it sounds like demand is significant, or at least that's what Komodo says, so cheers!

Looks like you spoke too soon, Liam. Good to see it doing well though.

This is great for all Deck owners. The most sales, the better for the Linux gaming ecosystem.

They don't ignore Deck but clearly ignore Linux unfortunately. (see Forspoken)

It showing out of stock is probably only shown in unsupported countries, because obviously you order from Valve not Komodo.

Which just goes to show how much difference buzz and perceived momentum make, because far as I can tell in pure numbers there's still more desktop Linux gamers so far.
