Despite the Steam Deck release date being pushed back by two months, excitement for the handheld gaming PC remains high. In a move that should help soften the blow of the device’s delay, Valve has shared the final Steam Deck retail packaging, and it includes a couple of Easter eggs that are sure to make Portal fans smile.
The company has finished the DV (Design Validation) manufacturing build of the Steam Deck, which Valve describes as “the final prototype build before production. After this build, there will be additional minor changes in the final product”.
This DV build had to be completed before the final retail packaging (pictured below) couldn’t be tested, but Valve didn’t let procedure get in the way of having a little fun, as is evidenced by the Portal inspired safety labels along the side of the Steam Deck’s cardboard box.
