In theory, it’s possible to own a Steam Deck today already – but that’s based on if you pre-ordered the same second as it became possible, or that you bought one from Ebay at a horribly overpriced price. So the question is when will you get your device if you do not meet either of these two requirements?

The answer is that you have to be prepared for a long wait. Via WCCFTech, we learn that Valve will not be able to send out Steam Deck units to people who book today, until October at the earliest. It is not yet known exactly when, and this seems to be an estimate, so you can count on the fact that you may not even get a game unit this year.
