Steam Deck available without reservation, the official dock arrives -

Steam Deck and now available for the purchase without reservation, with delivery expected in one or two weeks. That’s not all: Valve also unveiled the official dock for the handheld, also available now.

A few days after the announcement that Steam Deck has sold more than a million units, a very pleasant surprise arrives for all users who wanted buy the console but they feared queues and very long waiting times.

Visiting the official Steam Deck site is possible buy now one of the three versions of the handheld: the one with 64 GB of storage at the price of 419 €, the one with 256 GB of SSD storage and case at the price of 549 € or the one with 512 GB of SSD storage with anti-glare display and case at the price of € 679.

“We are pleased to announce that with today’s batch of ordering emails we have completed our pre-order queue. Steam Deck is now in stock and available for purchase!” Valve wrote in a post on the official website.

“It has been more than a year since Steam Deck was first announced. From day one we faced several supply chain problems and component shortages. While our team worked on solving these problems to meet demand. , we implemented a reservation system. This system allowed customers to reserve a seat in line without having to worry about updating pages, battling scripts or colliding with bots. “

“The team worked hard last year to address material shortages and logistical issues, and thanks to these efforts, we are now manufacturing and shipping Steam Decks at a speed never before achieved. Despite the ever-increasing booking rate, we are managed to exceed our shipping estimates and, as of today, we have finally completed the queue. “

“That said, our production, order processing and shipping capabilities still have a limit. If the volume of orders for a specific Steam Deck model grows more than our ability to ship it on time, delivery estimates will lengthen. and at some point we will have to reset the reservation system until we are able to keep up again. “

“Just like before, the customer queue will be saved and an email will be sent as soon as the order is ready. As soon as we have retrieved and fulfilled all pending reservations, we will return to direct order acceptance mode. “

“We are delighted to have reached this important milestone and will ship all units as fast as possible.”

The official dock has arrived!
Featuring 3 USB-A 3.1 Gen1 ports, a USB-C port for power, DisplayPort, HDMI and a Gigabit Ethernet port, the dock has all the connectivity you need. It’s the best way to connect your Steam Deck to power, two external monitors, and any number of different peripherals.

If you don’t care about having the official dock, you can use any other USB-C dock or hub. The work we have done on SteamOS to make the dock perfect for Steam Deck helps improve compatibility with other third-party hubs and docks as well.

As with Steam Deck, the dock is subject to the same limitations of handling and shipping capacity – if the volume of orders is very high, we will reset the booking mode until we can keep up again. We are delighted to finally be able to put the dock in the hands of customers. Thanks for your patience!
