KOMODO has announced their retail expansion with the Steam Deck OLED planned to be in stores across Asia starting December 12th. KOMODO are Valve's official partner of the Steam Deck and Docking Station across Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

Sent out via a press release KOMODO confirmed the "Steam Deck OLED has been very well received". So starting December 12th the Steam Deck OLED will come to these stores, along with trial experiences at select locations:

Japan

・Bic Camera
【Sapporo / Ikebukuro Camera・PC-kan / Yurakucho】
・Edion
【Yokohama West Main Store / Kyoto Shijo Kawaramachi / Namba Main Store】
・Yodobashi
【Multimedia Sendai / Multimedia Akiba / Shinjuku West Main Store / Multimedia Umeda 】
・PC Koubou
【Aeon Town Hiraoka / Akihabara Iiyamastore / Goodwill Nagoya Oosu / Goodwill Chatan / Goodwill Naha】
・Sofmap
【AKIBA PC・Digital-Kan】

South Korea

・Electro Mart
【Haeundae / Starfield Hanam / Yeonsu / Jayang / Wangsimni and other Electromart locations】

Hong Kong

・PREDATOR Proshops

Taiwan

・Acer Store
【Acer Tainan Rainbow / Acer Guang hua Digital Plaza / Hsinchu NOVA / Taichung NOVA / Taoyuan NOVA / Zhongli NOVA】

That's on top of KOMODO also selling them online on their official site, where it has been repeatedly sold out. Currently still, the 512GB model is out of stock so demand is clearly there. All great news to get this Linux-powered device into more hands.

Strange selection of stores.., why not the huge Bic Camera at JR Nagoya… Komodo are a really odd company.

Whilst the ROG Ally has demo units in nearly every electrical store going..,,

Ah well, I shall just continue loading the steam deck store page on any demo unit I see!

Quoting: lejimsterI wonder what the hold up is in places like Australia and New Zealand for example? They're in the same region and still nothing, nadda. I don't get it.

I would think Valve would want to be selling in as many places as possible.

I wonder that every day :(

I am so close to ordering a parallel imported one but I just know as soon as I do Valve will release them in AU/NZ.

Valve knows we exist, and Valve knows our strong refund-focused consumer protections exist...

Places like Kogan sell them, even OLED edition but you will be paying $300-400AUD to the middle men (currently $1279AUD) and I have no idea how warranty is handled.

I wonder how many books have enough purple in them to actually create a Purple Library the guy can hang out in.

Honestly don't think that would be a problem for Valve. They have a refurbished line of Steam Decks for quite some time. Also in the example of New Zealand, I would have thought Gabe would want his products in that country since it's almost his adoptive country from the pandemic period. Maybe the demand is higher in other countries and they are prioritizing a very slow rollout.
