As you can see in the video below, there are a lot of funny exchanges between Newell and customers, as they’re shocked to see a camera crew and a man that looks like the godfather of Steam delivering their new console.
The co-founder and president was even nice enough to sign the Steam Deck units, bashfully stating, “Hopefully people won’t get mad that I’m signing them.”
If you’re unfamiliar with the Steam Deck, you can read the official description below.
