I think UK simply has fewer orders so if they can meet their q2, q3 deadline at this rate then they'll be prioritizing other areas. Like EU which is where most of the order were I guess.

I had my 512 for a month now, love the thing. Been replaying GTA 5 as never fully completed and having a lot of fun. It's such a "no commitment" device.. pick up, play for 30-45, put down, come back when ever for another 30-45. I know it's first world problems but going to the pc, logging in, launching the game etc is just effort and I end up not playing as much. If ever.

I think this is what I need tbh.

I don't have a normal pc/desk set up. I currently use the pc exclusively via the TV more like a games console for controller based games.

But turning it on, using the wireless keyboard to choose what I want to play, messing about with sound devices (as sometimes my system doesn't work until a reboot) are all reasons why some evenings I just don't bother.

Honestly apart from Factorio I've not gamed on my desktop since I got the Deck. And that's only because Factorio really needs a mouse. It's a great little device and I'm delighted with mine. Only downside is the hassle of installing GOG games, although for things like Witcher 3 I just check for sales and buy them again on Steam.

Pretty much zero unless this alleged ramp up of production starts and shows some tangible results.

My order was 4 days in, if the bot on reddit is to be believed I'm 0.71% of the way there.

The bot only looks at what time you ordered, not how many are ahead of you, and it looks like the pre-orders were really heavily front loaded. So I hope that the time will go from minutes, to hours, to days pretty quickly.... at least thats what I keep telling myself. Im q3 and ordered a couple days in. So fingers crossed

The will be a pronounced bell curve for order volume. The FOMO/must-have types (like me) who hammered the system in the first hour until they got their order in will be the peak, then it'll drop off massively. I wouldn't be surprised if production catches up quickly once they get past the peak.

I'm hopeful for today for 256gb version.

" Results:
It looks like you have a UK 256GB reservation
You reserved your deck 00 days, 02 hours, 36 minutes and 23 seconds after pre-orders opened.

00 days, 02 hours, 34 minutes and 02 seconds of orders have been processed.

You have 00 days, 00 hours, 02 minutes and 21 seconds of orders to go until it is your turn.

You're 98.49 % of the way there!"


How accurate have these been so far?

yup a big jump for the 512gb in general perhaps the doubling of production will mean i might get mine alittle earlier than i'd hoped for

it will be interesting if they have doubled production how quickly the order times increase it was a jump of around 35 minutes which is huge compared to whats gone before.
