Steam Deck buyers get more good news from Valve

Valve shared more good news and people who have pre-ordered a Steam Deck and are waiting for an official purchase of the handheld. Over the past month, Valve revealed that it would be speeding up Steam Deck production and shipping, which meant buyers could get their hands on the hardware sooner than previously thought. Orders seem to have picked up again as Valve has announced that shipping is increasing at a much higher rate than previously thought.

Valve took to social media today, letting Steam Deck customers know that even more invitations to purchase this platform will be going out each week than usual. Well, since starting with this morning’s batch of Steam Deck Order invites, we’ve ramped up the number of emails being sent out again. “I’m excited to get more in your hands.”

Just a note: With the introduction of this morning’s batch of Steam Deck orders, we’ve increased the number of emails we’re resending. The opportunity to do so is endless. (Order emails go out Monday and Thursday morning PT)

It’s generally great to see a large number of motifs. Many of the game developers have already announced that they can continue to produce games without having to sell any software, as could be known until now, and that they can get the platform ahead of schedule.

Since the devastating death of the pandemic in 2020, it became difficult to buy computers and a PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox X and many other components. We believe that Valve could improve Steam Deck output to this level, although it suggests that alternative video game platforms could also become more available in the coming weeks and months. It’s not yet known if it’s happening across all companies, but if anything else, those who are still waiting for the breakup and locking in their own Steam Deck order should be happy with today’s news.

Still want to buy the steam rig? If so, when do you expect to receive the invitation to purchase the handheld monitor?
