The announcement of the Steam Deck hit like a bomb and absurd auctions and scalping attempts spring up from the ground. But you’d better ignore them.
The announcement of the Steam Deck, a new mobile platform on which you can play most of the games in your Steam library on the go, has caused quite a stir. So much so that the servers began to sway when the pre-orders started. But not only that, unpleasant side effects are also gushing through the network.
In the meantime, a number of auctions are appearing, sometimes with completely absurd prices, which promise delivery in December or in the first quarter of 2022. You shouldn’t fall for that, because the pre-order slots do not guarantee delivery at the specified time, but only secure a place in the queue. When exactly you will get your Steam Deck is by no means certain. Apart from the fact that the prices of the auctions slide completely into the absurd and call up four-digit amounts for the handheld, which costs from 399 US dollars.
Unfortunately, there will be plenty of gullible people falling for it anyway, but don’t say we didn’t warn you. If you really want to pre-order, do it on the official website for the Steam Deck.
