It looks great. 
 

What kind of price will it be? 

Entry level at $399.99 I believe but scale up to around $600.

 

Looks a great bit of kit, and full access to Steam library.

64gb is £349


250gb with faster storage is £459

 

512gb with faster storage and anti glare screen is £569

 

 

Preordered mine last night. As expected the servers went down almost immediately. My 512gb preorder said expected April-June 2022, as I think I missed the initial batch. Fine for me though as I can let it have 3-6 months out with the general public and if it ends up looking crap/ropey, I can cancel my reservation. 
 

Hopefully they’ve found a way around scalpers too. For the first 48 hours, you can only preorder from a Steam account that had made a purchase before July 2021. That stops people creating multiple new accounts to preorder them in bulk. 

 

£4 deposit, then they’ll contact you when they have enough supply to fulfil your order… looking forward to it, I think!

Son of a bitch, I'm in!

 

Seriously, that's ridiculous value when you compare it with the Switch.

You’d be able to buy months worth of games to play during a Steam Sale, for the price of one Switch first party title.

I’m getting one 

 

 

Nice, thanks for posting. I'm definitely interested as I always wanted to play on PC to play exclusives and old games, but got put off with the price, messing around you do with them and using a m&k etc. I was going to look at a next gen Xbox in a few years for the same reason, but wouldn't you be able to play them on this too with most/if not all Xbox exclusives being on PC too? Also games from other stores like Epic etc.? If I wasn't a big console/PlayStation gamer I would just get this for it's price and what you get for it.

"Girls are simply wonderful. Just to stand on a corner and watch them go past is delightful. They don't walk. At least not what we do when we walk. I don't know how to describe it, but it's much more complex and utterly delightful. They don't move just their feet; everything moves and in different directions . . . and all of it graceful."  Starship Troopers, Amen!
