Valve’s Steam Deck is Now On Sale, Up To 20% Off!

Get yer Decks here! Premium Steam Decks at slightly more affordable prices!

Valve’s Steam Deck has seen a sudden rise in competition recently. Asus’s ROG Ally and Lenovo’s Legion Go offer better specs at somewhat competitive prices. So, it’s no surprise that the Steam Deck is finding ways to undercut the other companies by providing used handhelds via GameStop and decent discounts.

The Steam Deck sale is going on now through September 21st. Depending on which of the three models you choose, you could save up to 20%:

  • 64GB eMMC – 10% off ($359.10)
  • 256GB NVMe SSD – 15% off ($449.65)
  • 512GB NVMe SSD – 20% off ($519.20)

If you’re willing to take a gamble on the “certified” refurbished models, here’s how much more you would save:

  • 64GB eMMC – ($319.00)
  • 256GB NVMe SSD – ($419.00)
  • 512GB NVMe SSD – ($519.00)

However, as of writing this article, the refurbished Steam Decks are all sold out.

Valve’s handheld gaming PC hit the market in February 2022. It has garnered several favorable reviews but does ask the user to make a healthy amount of concessions for the convenience factor.

Examples of the caveats include compatibility. Not everything in your Steam library will work with the device. We’re not talking about just running the game, either. The controls sometimes won’t map correctly to some games.

If I play a PC game, I’d prefer to have a mouse and keyboard. Turbo Overkill and Blood: Fresh Supply aren’t as enjoyable otherwise.

If the discounts tempt you, check out the Steam Deck’s specs below:

    CPU: Zen 2 4c/8t, 2.4-3.5GHz (up to 448 GFlops FP32)
    GPU: 8 RDNA 2 CUs, 1.0-1.6GHz (up to 1.6 TFlops FP32)

  • 16 GB LPDDR5 on-board RAM (5500 MT/s quad 32-bit channels)

    256 GB NVMe SSD (PCIe Gen 3 x4 or PCIe Gen 3 x2*)
    512 GB high-speed NVMe SSD (PCIe Gen 3 x4 or PCIe Gen 3 x2*)
