When asked if it would meet these pre-orders successfully, Valve president Gabe Newell praised the Steam Deck’s unexpectedly high demand.

On Friday Valve started reaching out to people who pre-ordered the handheld Steam Decks on a first-come, first-served basis. Customers have three days to complete the purchase or lose their place in the fast-growing queue.

The base version of the handheld Steam Deck goes for £349 together with 64GB flash storage, while the top-end iteration costs £569 and comes with 512GB of faster internal storage.
