(Pocket-lint) - Just recently Valve announced that it had sorted supply chain issues that were holding the Steam Deck back.

The company took to Twitter to let everyone know that anyone with a current Steam Deck reservation would get their handheld console by the end of the year. 


Since then Valve has revealed that the Steam Deck is also coming to more regions thanks to the help of Komodo. Komodo is going to play the part of an authorised reseller in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong

Valve has also stated that these new reservations won't have an impact on the reservation queue for other regions. In other words, those currently waiting for the Steam Deck in North America, Europe and the United Kingdom won't be impacted. 

Those gamers from Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong can no place a reservation for a Steam Deck with orders shipping later this year.

  • NT$ 13,380 in Taiwan
  • HK$ 3,288 in Hong Kong
  • KRW 589,000 in Korea
  • 59,800 yen in Japan
