Valve handhelds steam cover it’s a hugely exciting device, but it also has a not insignificant problem. It’s not available in large numbers just yet, but Valve will only be giving it out in taps for pre-orders. Consequently, so far only a select few can call their own Steam Deck, but Valve has now at least promised some improvement.
Patience is still required
Because with the start of the second quarter, a tweet was announced that would now increase Steam Deck deliveries. Also, more pre-orders will be happy. As Valve announced, an email will be sent to other interested parties in the near future to reserve their Steam Deck with an order.
However, it should be mentioned once again that this only affects those who have already submitted a corresponding pre-order to Valve.

Even if larger delivery quantities, at least on paper, promise somewhat better availability in the medium term, caution is still required. Because everyone who is still waiting for a Steam platform should be patient, because a timely delivery of the PC handheld is not expected.
Brand new orders are not due for delivery until October 2022, or even later. If you are interested in Steam Deck, you still need one thing above all else: patience.
