There's good news for people waiting for a Steam Deck(opens in new tab), or who might be in the market for one: Production capacity is now at a point that should allow Valve to fulfill all reservations by the end of the year.

But there's also bad news for people waiting for a Steam Deck in Canada because, well, that might not apply to you. «Our distributor has hit a processing backlog for orders to Canada, so folks in this region will see a (very) temporary pause on order emails,» Valve explained on Twitter. «We're working on it, and are optimistic we can resume emails to Canada soon.» Valve clarified that the pause is to enable the distributor to get through the backlog of paid orders in Canada, and that emails and shipments in other regions will not be impacted.

As PC Gamer's resident Canadian, I have to say that, well, this sucks. Hopefully the pause is as brief as Valve suggests, and the Decks will start flowing tomorrow or maybe next week at the latest, but regardless of the duration, it's the principle of the thing.

Unlike most of the rest of the world, which is separated from it by large bodies of water, for us in Canada the US is literally right there.
