I went ahead and put $5 towards reserving the 64GB model. This is going to be exclusively for smaller games that would be great on Switch but are not available on that platform, or ones that are available on the eShop but marked up with the infamous "Nintendo tax".

To be honest I feel like if I get this I would more be interested in playing some classic PC games more than current stuff. There are a bunch of older Star Trek and Star Wars PC games that would be fun to revisit or play for the first time. Among other games Iím sure. Debating on one. Probably would go with just the base model I think.

Looks like an uncomfortable stretch for the left thumb stick.

Meh, it's probably being held by a carnie.




Hopefully it isn't too uncomfortable

If down the line I read that GOG and the HOMM games work on it, I’ll be getting one for sure.

I got an email from Steam Support. They refunded my $5 and canceled my preorder. I searched my older emails and I can't find any one where I was invited to buy one. That is so weird. Did they cancel it or something?

I put my reservation in within an hour of them being available and have heard nothing besides the confirmation (and it still showing I have a preorder). Whatís the point of a preorder again? I donít even think I want it now.

The fact is I don't even think I want one now, TBH. But it's shitty to cancel preorder made almost a year ago, and without any warning AFAIK.

Oh I agree. I just cannot believe that it is THIS popular that preorders from the very beginning have not been filled. Or cancelled without notice.

Which version did you order? I'm debating paying the premium online rather than hoping my (July 2021) pre order is available anytime soon. I ordered the top model which I assume has the longest wait.

Wait, did people who got in the first window not get theirs yet? Otherwise I think they did a decent job communicating what window you were expected to be in according to your place in line (but I dunno, I'm in the Q3 boat).

I pre-ordered the $399.00 basic model.

Yep! This is my Steam page right now - July 16th was the day the pre-orders went live, though I was wrong about how early I got it in - they went live at 12PM and I placed my order at 7PM:

I know two people who ordered first day (I assume early) and have both had theirs about a month or so now. Possibly longer.

i got my pre-order selected for the 256GB model a month ago. Ultimately i decided i didn't think the value was there and sold mine. I never opened it. My order was placed about 20 mins after they went on sale.
