This was probably an error- a bunch of stock became available about 30 past. That’s when I got mine.

Same here. I was closing steam, figured it wasn’t my lucky day after the out of stock message, and just refreshed the order out of habit and it went sailing through!
- Comment on Steam just lost my sale. 3 months ago:
Yeah, I got the error page a bunch of times, then the “we’re out of stock”, and finally, an order confirmation! I suspect the servers were just overloaded - valve is definitely underestimating demand - and then they were running into fulfillment issues that have slowly been sorted out.
There’s no doubt some bots got some, but I think there’s a lot of happy second steamdeck owners today as well…
