Steam Deck Pre-Orders are now open Time for potential restock
Despite these conditions, Steam Deck preorders sold quickly and scalpers tried to sell reservations at exorbitant eBay prices.
The staggering price of a Steam Deck reservation on eBay was $4,000.
Although the Steam Deck will be released in December, could Valve once more open preorders?
Valve stated that a few pre-order conditions were in effect for reservations made within the first 48 hours.
The Steam Deck reservation FAQ page has a section called “Why is my account not being able to make a reservation before Sunday?”
Valve answered that question by saying: “We are conscious of unauthorised resellers. As an extra safeguard, we have added the requirement that the reserver make a Steam purchase prior to June 2021. This will ensure fair order processing.
