Article from IGN HERE

   Says that it's looking like steam will be able to fulfil first orders onetime, exciting. I do have a 512Gig Deck Pre-ordered but I'm finding it really hard to justify it I just really like new shiny toys. I do not need this in any way. There's a link in the article to check on your order status too! I'll link to it to HERE! Exciting!

I thought these were out already.

 

The delay occurred due to the chip shortage, at least according to Valve themselves, which I'm inclined to believe in that. At the same time, it would allow them more time for compatibility with Proton, which has been the whole point of the system with SteamOS 3.0. 

 

I preordered a 512GB model, and mine was marked for Q1 2022, but once the delayed happened, that got bumped back to Q2 2022. I do believe there will be a fair amount of folks who will opt out of their reservation once their slot comes up, minus the scalpers whose only intention is to purchase one to flip it at a profit.

I wonder how much they'd do for. While it is better unless you want to play strategy games via the touch pad it mgiht be better to take the L and get a Neo. Especially if someone doesn't live in a region Valve is selling the deck.

Just confused by the thread title then.  According to Valve's website, mine is 3-months late.

 

It was officially delayed by a couple of months. The thread "on time" refers to shipping on time to the new proposed date.
