Attempts to purchase the updated Steam Deck OLED with 1TB storage from the official online store result in an error message. Valve admitted that there was a problem, but has not yet been able to fix it and has not commented on the reasons for the error.
The official Steam online store states that the updated Steam Deck OLED portable console is in stock, for both versions: 512GB and 1TB. However, an unexpected error occurs when trying to place an order. It is repeated under all circumstances: journalists Hot hardware When ordering an older version of the device, we tried choosing other payment methods and changing browsers, but the result was always the same. Similar complaints appeared on the Steam forums.
Official Steam Deck social media account reportedthat Valve is currently working on a problem related to ordering in the online shop, but did not provide any information. According to one version, the error may be related to high demand and occurs at least when trying to place an order for the older version of Steam Deck OLED with a 1TB drive.
At some point, an “Out of Stock” message appeared next to this device option, but it quickly disappeared and never appeared again. A delivery time of 3-5 working days is stated for all models, which indirectly indicates that there is no defect.
