(Pocket-lint) - Valve has been working hard on delivering Steam Deck orders as fast as possible. So much so that it might well be fulfilling all current orders for the popular PC gaming handheld by the end of the year. 

The company has been making regular posts announcing that it has been increasing the speed of email invites for those who have reserved.

Production and distribution of the console are going well. So well in fact that Valve is already planning several versions of future Steam Decks. Now Valve has announced that it's likely to have all reservations filled very soon. With one exception:

Things aren't going as smoothly in Canada it seems. Gamers in Canada who have reserved a Steam Deck may have to wait longer as Valve has said it's temporarily pausing due to distribution issues.

However, with production continuing smoothly in other regions it's possible that in 2023 you may be able to order a Steam Deck without reserving one. Exciting times.
