Valve Announces Steam Deck Giveaway At The Game Awards 2022

With only one week remaining before The Game Awards 2022, Valve announced the giveaway of a single 512GB Steam Deck per minute of the broadcast time for the event. As The Game Awards is airing, a random name will be pulled every minute from those watching that are eligible to win a 512GB Valve Direct Deck.

Valve is going to give away an upcoming Steam Deck giveaway, giving away a single 512GB Steam Deck – yes, the most expensive model every minute The Game Awards airs on Dec. 8. In a recent Steam post, Valve said that Valve would have an exciting contest giving away a Steam Deck each minute and that sign-ups are open now for everyone wanting in.

It is worth noting Valve says the giveaway is only limited to four countries. As far as their handheld game machines themselves, Steam Deck, as mentioned earlier, is shipping in parts of Asia starting on Dec. 17. A qualifying purchase includes something other than Valve’s own hardware, as well as a AAA title from Valve, so if you have purchased something during this time frame from a sale, and you live in an eligible region, you will be eligible to win the 512GB Steam Deck, even if you already have one.

Names will be drawn randomly minute-by-minute, and each winner is snagging a 512GB Steam Deck. All eligible participants watching the ceremony through Valve will be entered into a drawing. Winners will be announced on live chat when the lottery is held.

To note, the Game Awards are expected to last about two-and-a-half hours this year, so there are more than one hundred Valve decks up for grabs. Eligible fans can sign up to give away at a blog highlighting giveaways, then they will have to watch the Game Awards that month via that stream. All you have to do to participate is register and watch the stream on Valves digital storefront, Steam.

In partnership with The Game Awards 2022 Show, Valve will give away 1x Steam Deck per minute of the show to a select group of registered users watching through Valve. While giving out the game awards this year might not provide each and every fan who wants one console, it certainly helps a lot to reach the goals. While there will still be plenty of gamers out there who will still have yet to lay hands on the Valve-made console following the ceremony, fans will get better than 100 chances at taking home the highest-end Steam Deck release.
