Steam Dock for Steam Deck now available for purchase at US$89
Although the handheld console market is no longer as sparse as it used to be, the Steam Deck continues to be one of the most coveted pieces of hardware thanks to its integration with steam, customizability, ease of repair and affordability. It was out of stock on Valve's website for the longest time, but one can purchase it now on Steam along with a brand new accessory, the Steam Dock. This time, there's no reservation period for the 256 GB Steam Deck variant, allowing one to purchase it immediately.
As its name suggests, the Steam Dock is a Steam Deck companion that converts the handheld experience into a full-screen one. Unlike the Nintendo Switch, it is flush with I/O, including an HDMI 2.0 port, a DP 1.4 port, three USB Type-A ports, an ethernet port, a USB Type-C port to interface with the Steam Deck and another one to power the dock.
One can pre-order it from Steam's website for US$89 and get it delivered within the next two weeks. Considering that Valve has sold over a million Steam Decks to date, the Steam Dock could go out of stock pretty soon. Nonetheless, restocking it should be a bit easier, so we can expect to see a few more of those hit shelves now and then.
