Watch Valve’s Gabe Newell Deliver Steam Decks to Mainly Confused Customers

Published on

One of my favorite things about famous game developers is how hyper-specific their fame is. So naturally I was excited to see a promotional video from Valve showing its co-founder and president Gabe Newell – one of the most famous game developers in the world – showing some members of the public getting confused by Steam with the hand deliver Cover in person.

To be fair, a handful of recipients instantly recognize a masked Newell when he shows up at the door with a Steam Deck in hand. But in many other cases, deliveries are taken on behalf of other household members. “What’s up with the camera crew?” asks the confused wife of one man on a ski trip, while another politely checks if they need to sign anything before closing the door.

My favorite aspect of the video, however, is that Newell is a little embarrassed that he signed these early Steam Deck units. “Hopefully people don’t get mad at me signing them,” Newell jokes for the camera early on, before apologetically saying, “I signed it, I hope it’s okay,” to a recipient. It’s a very recognizable moment from one of the biggest names in video games.

As for the console itself, you can check out what we thought of it in our in-depth review. While the Steam Deck is undoubtedly a lot of potential, the device currently shipping to humans is buggy, unstable and generally feels unfinished. But if Valve is willing to give the Steam Deck the same level of attention and continued support as its most popular games, then it might just have huge success on its hands.
