Valve is fulfilling additional Steam Deck orders, but puts Canada on pause ...

Valve has just shared some wonderful information that should help make dealing with the handheld gaming PC shaped hole in your life a bit easier. However, those in Canada will have to take a temporary pause on the ability to purchase the device due to distribution problems in the Great White North.

Valve announced on the official Steam Deck Twitter account that the company is on track to fulfill all reservations by the end of the year! Now, when you go to the official store page for the portable powerhouse, new orders have an expected availability for September-December 2022, lowering the quarterly estimates.

It's wonderful to see that the backlog is slowly but surely disappearing, but it remains to be seen whether or not it will be addressed promptly enough to avoid it bleeding in 2023, especially as a result of new pre-orders.

As a Valves distributor, Canada's processing backlog might be more severe than others. The company is optimistic that it will be able to resume emails shortly, although it hasnt released a more specific timeline.
