Gaming Company Value has announced that its handheld console Steam Deck will sell on February 25th. The impressive gaming console will be taking on the Nintendo Switch spec for spec. Due to its limited supply and the ongoing chip storage, only customers with reservations would buy the console.
It’s nice to have a sale date, as the device which was announced in July 2021 with a December shipment has been delayed by almost 2 months. This is a result of shortage problems and the current supply chain challenges. The company says that customers with reservations would receive an email on the 25th, and will have up to 3 days to make an order. Orders placed on that day would start shipping on the 28th to customers.
