Valve Launches Refurbished Steam Decks, Starting at $319

Looking to get a deal on the Steam Deck? Good news, as Valve has begun selling certified refurbished versions of its handheld PC, allowing prospective owners to score one of the portable gaming devices for as low as $319. That price would represent an $80 savings over the normal price of entry, with the 64 GB model, featuring eMMC storage, priced at $399. Valve explained that its refurbished Steam Decks go through 100 tests, which implies they should function just as well as brand-new models.

Steam Deck (Certified Refurbished) Pricing

  • Steam Deck 64 GB: $319 (vs. $399)
  • Steam Deck 256 GB: $419 (vs. $529)
  • Steam Deck 512 GB: $519 (vs. $649)

Steam Deck (Certified Refurbished) Features

  • Same one-year warranty as a new Steam Deck (unless longer as determined by your country of residence)
  • Refurbished power supply – fully tested (may have minor cosmetic marks)
  • Carrying case and Quick Start guide

Each Certified Refurbished Steam Deck has been thoroughly tested to the same high standards as our retail units. Every device goes through a complete factory reset, software update, and an extensive examination involving over 100 tests at one of Valve’s facilities. Among the tests are all controller inputs, the audio system, the screen, and internals. Battery health is also assessed to ensure proper functionality and longevity.

All refurbished units meet or even exceed the performance standards of new retail units. Although they may have minor cosmetic blemishes, they provide a reliable, high-quality gaming experience at a lower cost.
