cool, more features can't hurt, steam 4tw

I find this bad I do not want to have to pay more and more money for content. Especially for little content that should be included. The first game I can see using this is Lead and Gold. (just a prediction) but they have already been talking about dlc and no hints of free dlc at that.

Steam Deck Launch Delayed

According to Valve: “The launch of Steam Deck will be delayed by two months. We’re sorry about this—we did our best to work around the global supply chain issues, but due to material shortages, components aren’t reaching our manufacturing facilities in time for us to meet our initial launch dates. Based on our updated build estimates, Steam Deck will start shipping to customers February 2022.”

Totally understandable given the current climate, but also a big blow for hype for sure. I would not be surprised if there was a further delay down the road, given how unpredictable assembly lines are at the moment.

suits me cos i cant afford mine till after xmas haha

Teflon02927d ago

Literally what I just said out loud lmao. Mine was Q1 it said already. But this just makes it perfect for me if the earliest is Feb, mine will probably be April or later which is outside all the releases I care about

VenomUK927d ago

It's understandable as all manufacturers are supply constrained of components. It just means that 2022 is going to be SO stacked!

roadkillers927d ago

Why do people always say "current climate"? What are the origins of this highly corporate statement?

ActualWhiteMan927d ago

Current Climate is 45 degrees Fahrenheit where I am HBU? 🤣

Sgt_Slaughter927d ago

Just felt like using it, works for the context of the situation

blacktiger927d ago

ikr, people are brainwashed

blacktiger927d ago

oh lord this guy believes in climate bs

AmUnRa926d ago

And some people dont want to see the truth and are brainwashed and think there is nothing wrong with the climate and dont want to see al the signs that indicate that there is defenitly a change in the climate worldwide.

blacktiger926d ago (Edited 926d ago )

by listening to others is not truth, seeing for yourself is truth. But people are used to so called television and media oh yeah and government but not with their own eyes ever! That's a hard fact. Ice melt, and you all believe it. Volcanoe hit and you all believe it, this has happened even in the Bible so what climate change for 10, 000 years?

Fishy Fingers927d ago

Year on and we still cant easily buy consoles or GPUs. No surpised.

Orchard927d ago

That's a bummer, but only 2 months, and understandable given how unpredictable HW is right now.

phoenixwing927d ago

Disappointing but not really surprised. I'll still be waiting and keep my pre order

Eonjay927d ago

Feburary seems to be the month everything is releasing now.

Si-Fly926d ago

Until the next round of delays 🤣
