"Some great news on the production front. We just sent the last batch of Q2 emails, and we’ll start sending Q3 reservation emails on the 30th," reads the tweet from Valve. "Production has picked up, and after today we'll be shipping more than double the number of Steam Decks every week!"

Numbers would be nice. Doubling from 500 to 1000 isn't very impressive, but going from 30k to 60k would be.

I remember reading something earlier in the year from valve saying ~100k a month in April but I bet that was a wish more than a count so best case if they doubled it I would put it ~200k and under 250k for 100% sure. Which isn't bad at all considering the PS5 does what ~500k a month right now. For a company that doesn't normally make consoles and the current market of supply issues I would say I expect 150-200k after this is the true best case but at the same time is a massive success for them. I have one and love it and would totally get a second one for family members if I didn't have to wait in line. I have 100s of steam games and can side load GOG games just fine also so there is always something to play

Also would like to point out this doesn't mean they have been selling 100k a month since launch just a hopeful 100k a month since April

Well if they are going from 100k to 200k a month, or 2.5M a year that seems decent for a niche system even if LTD it would probably be below PSVita and WiiU. I doubt Steam is losing money on them so all good.
