Steam Deck Purchases No Longer Enter Reservation Queue in Many Regions

Valve has announced that all purchases of their Steam Deck hardware in the United States, Canada, the European Union, and the United Kingdom going forward will no longer enter a reservation queue, meaning that shipments will be far swifter than they have been beforehand. Ever since the Steam Deck launched earlier this year, attempts to order it would conclude with queues of various wait times due to high demand and supply issues.

Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and Hong Kong orders still require a reservation.

Prospective users will now have a much easier time obtaining this device. For those who have been out of the loop, the Steam Deck is portable hardware akin to the Nintendo Switch that lets users play their Steam library games on the go. Granted, countless titles had to be manually reviewed for this functionality to be possible, but Valve has reached a point where a significant number of games are playable with the device.
