With the Steam Deck's release on Friday 25th, Valve has posted a new update for those waiting to get their hands on the handheld gaming PC. "Starting at 10am Pacific, we'll be sending emails out to the first batch of reservation holders via the address tied to their Steam account," reads the post. "Those folks will then have 72 hours to complete their purchase on Steam for the specific model they reserved. If they cancel or do not purchase in this time frame, we'll release their reservation to the next person in the queue."

Valve also notes that reviews from media outlets that received a review unit will go live around 10am Pacific too.

The post also provides an update on the Dock for Steam Deck, writing that it "won't be happening as early as we wanted". However, the company plans to make them available sometime in late spring.

Have a look on ProtonDB, some people are listing things to get games running such as specific versions of Proton, messing around with game files, etc. as well as listing specific issues.

In some cases it’s a mixed bag such as some being ‘no problem’ whilst others have minor tp ga,e breaking.

Obviously these aren’t specific to the Steam Deck, but it might give a better idea of what to expect.

Personally, I’m hoping the Windows drivers are decent enough.
