Steam Deck


Recommended Posts

"Steam Deck reservations moved back to Q2 and Q3 2022. 

An overwhelming number of orders caused problems for Valve when it opened pre-orders for the newly-announced Steam Deck on Friday. Many users struggled to get through the reservation process, either encountering error messages about the transaction itself, that they had attempted too many purchases in the last few hours, or that their account was "too new" to make the reservation.

The first tier of pre-orders is expected to ship in December, arriving Q1 2022. However, reservations for the 256GB model have been pushed back to Q2, and orders for the 512GB model are expected in Q3.

Despite the delay in shipping and account specification, Steam Deck pre-orders are already appearing in eBay listings at inflated prices, some as high as £1,200."

There are rumours that this could be for Valve a test bench for creating a fully integrated VR headset

 

If offset doesn’t work for you, I was linking @7:10

 

It's looking like a pretty certain thing. Untethered is the way forward and having a chip that is able to run all the current Steam PCVR titles would be the best approach.

Definitely, that point is when I expect a spike in adoption.
I was really tempted to get the untethered Oculus at some point, then i read about all the facebook integration policies and that was a no-no. Sad some companies are making exclusive titles for Oculus :( wish Valve supported studios like Ready At Dawn.

Next step, have some contact pins with the device to jack in with the brain chips GabeN is working on with his son :D
