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. This will be the new start date of the reservation queue—all reservation holders keep their place in line but dates will shift back accordingly. Reservation date estimates will be updated shortly after this announcement.
Again, we’re sorry we won’t be able to make our original ship date. We’ll continue working to improve reservation dates based on the new timeline, and will keep folks updated as we go.

Can you change the thread title? It's not Holiday of 2022. It's February of 2022.
When asked about the matter, Valve's response was short and clear. "No, that doesn't make much sense to us. It's a PC and it should just play games like a PC,"responded the company in the FAQ. To delve into Valve's comments a little further, upon launch, the Steam Deck will run a modified version of Valve's SteamOS - designed with a console-like interface that will allow players to easily navigate the Steam Store and their own Steam libraries.
I've got a pre-order in, but I don't think mine will be shipping until summer at least.Post impressions, whoever is getting one. I might pick one up way down the road, although I barely play the Switch. That might have to do with games and SD seems to offer more value.
Still an emulation monster though.I just checked the Steam Deck Verified Games page and of my 205 games only 20 games in my library are deck verified, 12 are designated functional but might require extra effort to interact with or configure, 10 are unsupported and the rest are untested.
Looks like I'm going to wait until more of my library is supported.
