Finally got my preorder email. Almost missed it since they sent it on the 4th and only give you 72 hours to buy it.

So I guess heroic games launcher is the recommended way to play some GOG games?

I want to say q3 but I honestly don't remember, is there a way to check after purchase?

I was in the Q3 group (if I remember correctly I didn't preorder until the second day) and my Steam Deck arrived today. I got the email on the 7th and placed the order on the 8th.

Pretty much same with me (also got mine on the 15th) so I must've been in the Q3 group too.

I think I'm getting there. I'm not a big PC gamer, more of a console gamer (because my dad drilled into my brain to use the computer for work/school and the console for play) and most of the games I've gotten are on GOG which is not really compatible.

So I'm up for anyone's recommendations on great Steam games to play on this, portable. I was thinking maybe I'll rebuy No Man's Sky or something.

Got the purchase email for my 64GB preorder today. I have quite a list of games on my Steam wishlist that I can finally pick up.

I canít help but wish Iíd gone with the 256GB model, but I recognize that Iím not going to be playing Elden Ring or Call of Duty type AAA games on this, and I rarely have more than a couple games installed at any given time on PC or console, so in reality much of that storage wouldíve never been touched anyway.

I've heard anecdotally that it's not impossible to swap out the drives.

I did it a couple days ago. It's stupid easy to do. I took my 64gb to a 512gb for about $50 and a few minutes of time. It wasn't terribly necessary though. I'd been running RDR2, Stray, Jedi Fallen Order, and GTA IV off a 256 SD card without any problems.

I am hoping to do the same - run an SD card before swapping out hardware.

It's scheduled to be delivered tomorrow, but I'll be out of town until Friday, so hands off until then. It'll be nice to have a few more days with Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

I finally got the email!

About how long should I expect it to take to ship and deliver?

It might depend on where you live. I'm in California. I got the email on a Thursday, paid on Saturday, and received it the Sunday of the next week, so 8 days for me. My son got his a month later and it took 9 days.
