STEAM How to Buy the Steam Deck in Canada Get the Steam Deck Without a Reservation!

get this deal

Take your Steam library anywhere you go with the latest device from Valve, because the Steam Deck is now available to order – no reservation required.

In Canada, the Steam Deck is only available through Steam and we've listed the Canadian pricing for each configuration, along with the newly-released Steam Deck Dock.

Steam Deck orders have been fulfilled very slowly ever since its February 2022 launch, but Valve is ramping up production ahead of the holiday season, with an approximate shipping time of 2-3 weeks instead of several months.

Originally unveiled in July 2021, the Steam Deck is a handheld gaming device with a 7" touchscreen, AMD Zen 2-based APU, 16GB of RAM and built-in controls. The device has received mostly positive reviews, with praise for its competitive price, performance and user-friendly approach to repairability. On the other hand, most criticism has been directed at the Steam Deck's underwhelming battery life and occasional software glitches.

The Steam Deck qualifies for free shipping in Canada and there's a limit of one Steam Deck per Steam account.

    • Had a great time with my Deck but was forced to sell it due to RSI issues. I tried kickstands and whatnot but ultimately couldn't make it work like I wanted and I didn't buy it for a docked experience primarily.

    • I finally found something that irritates me about the Deck. The fans spin up fast and get whiny in Diablo 2: Resurrected.
      You can try using the old fan curve, if you’re not already. You can disable the “Enable updated fan curve” at the bottom of Settings > System.

    • I haven't used Xbox Cloud over my phone's mobile data, just WiFi. I installed Edge and did the Microsoft recommended changes for controller support. Other than that, it works flawlessly. The most hilarious part about the Steam Deck is my wife thinks it's just my Switch. She doesn't realise I've purchased something new.

    • That's the world of internet reselling that just keeps growing, pandemic probably made it much worse, so many inexperienced occasional resellers, everyone and their pet yak thinks they can cash in on it. Dreamers, or ignorant ones that don't keep up on retail info, or the "some idiot will buy this" thinking, whatever it is, it's probably never going to end. I just did a quick search on Kijiji for that Animal Crossing edition Nintendo Switch, sadly I only found one and it wasn't crazy priced. Maybe that one is finally over :).


      Do you use the Xbox Cloud gaming via your phone's mobile data? Is it easy to make that work, just runs in the default web browser?

    • I picked up a 512 GB deck and 512 GB SDXC for my Christmas gift to myself. I have to say, now that they've ironed out the bugs, I'm suitably impressed. Having a web browser, Xbox Cloud Gaming, cross saves and Stream from Desktop in one machine is pretty awesome. Now that Square and Sony are releasing first party games for the PC, I am very, very close to retiring the Switch. It's pretty cool being able to pick-up my Persona 5 Royal save from anywhere. Battery life is pants though, but oh well. They should really advertise this as the backlog killer.

    • Don't buy too many games at once, especially big AAA games. Those will eventually go on sale, finish what you have first. I bought FF7 remake and DLC at launch and......I still won't be touching it for a while lol. It works well though.
      I paid 80 for the two games lol.. after I beat those I’ll be on the hunt for new games :)

    • Got 512GB steam deck recently off Kijiji. Wow! I love it, no comparison to switch. My dream came true playing fallout 3 and NV on portable, mostly 60fps too. PS5, series X and gaming PC are taking a long vacation 😜. I am quite impressed with battery life, way better than expected, fan is quiet, screen and performance is great. Not missing my sold switch OLED.

      Best part is buying games of steam, cdkeys, fanatical for fraction of other system cost, or just playing through freebies I got from RFD years ago 😎

      Also have a 64gb on order, doesn't appear like I can cancel anymore and its not shipped either. Steam CS is not responding. I guess I'll sell it closer to Xmas 😉
      Enjoy in good health! I find it hilarious though how much people are asking for the Steam Deck on Kijiji: "Used Steam Deck for sale. Only asking the exactly same price as retail!". It's like people have not mentally registered that the backlog is over.

    • Yup, you can definitely get good deals. I have a friend whos been trying to sell his but there are so many on the market, he just doesn't use it as much as he'd like. It's worth it but not everyone have the time. Personally, I've spent over 300 hrs on three games for the past 3-4 months since I got it in August. Monster Hunter Rise, Vampire Survivors (and HoloCure) and Persona 3 FES. Once I finished P3 FES, its time for P4 and another few hundred hours lol
      Vampire Survivors! Spend $5 and play it on a $500-800 handheld! I've played about 50 hours before calling it done.

    • Anyone use it for general computer purpose with windows? Thinking of getting an external ssd and put windows there.
      i was thinking of putting windows on a bootable usbc stick just for running xbox gamepass. i did get gamepass streaming to work but always better to run locally imo.

      im really enjoying playing some mario switch games on the deck...these are just the perfect games to play on this that I have found so far...

    • Anyone use it for general computer purpose with windows? Thinking of getting an external ssd and put windows there.
      I think the only reason to put Windows on it is it's to run something unsupported in SteamOS. If you're doing browsing, word processing, or streaming then I wouldn't bother. If you have to run specific software that you couldn't get running in SteamOS then go for it. Otherwise, get a dock and connect a kb/mouse and do your desktop stuff like on any other PC. Any general purpose task doesn't really matter whether it's Windows or not because the bigger difference is replicating a desktop/laptop setup.

    • My Steam Deck is getting almost no use due to a couple problems, first I don't go anywhere, second my eyesight just keeps getting worse. Anyone know any solutions? :)

    • Lucked out and just picked up a 512GB BNIB off kijiji for $750. I was initially leaning towards the 64gb off the website, but wasn’t sure how comfortable I was doing the internal storage upgrade by myself.

      I think the scalping for this is done, at least for now, since theres no more reservation sysyem in place. Only way I see the scalping starting again is around Christmas time if the shipping delays get longer.

    • Not sure about anyone else but my Dock shipped this morning, looking forward to this thing replacing my entire retro PC setup in the basement. Still super happy with the Deck itself, my only lament is battery life but I understand that any more capacity would mean a lot of heft.
      yes battery life is definitely the weak point....it even drains battery like crazy in desktop mode using anydesk to copy files/etc. im getting around 4 hours with mix of steam/epic games and emulators so no where close to 8.

      i think on a long flight you would need a usb battery but i have not messed with some of the optimization settings to lower battery/etc.

    • I bought the 64 GM model and here’s why. You can easily find a 512 GB m2 drive (need to search for an 2230 size though) on EBay for example and also get a 512 GB microSD (total of 1TB) for cheaper than getting the 256 GB model. It’s really easy to change out the included 64 EMMC drive and reinstall Steam OS using a USB C hub.
      ya its so cool you can replace the SSD so i got the 64 gb one too. Im going to wait for a deal on 1tb ssd though so far the lowest price Ive seen for that is about $135 CAD.

    • Mixed on the docked experience on the Deck. It was truly awful before the lateast stable update which added customizable docked resolution. I think there was previously a workaround in desktop mode to force a max resolution, now it's built into SteamOS. I have the 5-in-1 Jsaux dock. I'd up to the Valve dock but unsure if it fits the grip case I've got one. The Jsaux just barely fits it.

    • After much deliberation, ordered 64gb model. Btw, now says 2-4 weeks, though it appears you can order multiple units if you like

    • JSAUX seems really popular for a dock. There are several versions and the most popular seems comparable to the official dock. Just one HDMI, no DisplayPort and no charger included. Still cheaper to buy a charger if needed. I think that's a pretty good alternative for about half the price as long as the dual display isn't required. The company made it for the Deck and there are plenty of reviews so a safer choice than other random ones on Amazon.

    • I ordered the official dock, worth the premium over the cheap Amazon ones in my opinion. USB 3.1, HDMI 2.0, Gigabit Ethernet, another charger included and it even has DisplayPort.

      Really happy with my Deck, I fart around gaming on the go but dock it near the TV sometimes. Great having a portable PC/emulation box.

    • I think the 512Gb model has a better screen and comes with a carrying case. You can easily updgrade the 64Gb with more storage via micro SD.
      Plus, there's the option of opening it up and replacing the internal drive with a 512GB and it would still be cheaper. All models get the carrying case too. Only the 512GB gets a colored Deck logo on the case, a small bag for the charger, and a cleaning cloth. The screen is anti-glare but otherwise the same as the other models.

      The 64GB is good value with options to upgrade. An SD card solves any storage concerns. Upgrading internal storage isn't necessary but makes it easier to accommodate the shader cache because that doesn't get saved to the SD card by default. The shader cache can get quite large and it can be confusing if you install all your games to the SD card but internal storage still fills up.
