You may soon be able to buy Steam decks without pre-orders

Good news for those waiting for the Steam deck (opens in new tab), or who might be in the market for one: Production capacity should now allow Valve to complete all preorders by the end of the year. But there’s also bad news for those waiting for the Steam deck in Canada, as this may not apply to you.

“Our distributors are already processing orders to Canada, so people in the region will see a (very) temporary order email pause,” Valve explained on Twitter. “We’re working on it and optimistic that We can resume sending emails to Canada soon.”
