Valve has shipped ‘hundreds’ of Steam Deck dev kits in the last month, remains on track for February launch

According to the latest update from Valve, not only will the Steam Deck ship on time (“Global pandemic, supply issues, and shipping issues notwithstanding, it looks like we’ll be able to start getting these out the door by the end of February”), but plenty of game developers will have their own test Decks in advance to help insure their games are fully compatible with the handheld device.

Valve’s Deck Verified program will give a tick to games that satisfy its categories for Steam Deck compatibility, including full controller support, as well as supporting the default resolutions of 1280×800 or 1280×700 with readable text. A look at Portal 2 in SteamDB shows that it’s already set up for a Steam Deck compatibility rating, which will presumably be visible in the storefront soon.
