Are you planning on watching The Game Awards 2022? Do you want to win a Steam Deck? Well, have I got just the competition for you.
Valve and The Game Awards have teamed up to give away a 512GB Steam Deck – that’s the top-tier model which costs $649 – every single minute of the show. The Game Awards 2022 is expected to run for approximately two and a half hours, which means there are 150 chances to win your very own Steam Deck.
You’ll need to register for the competition on Steam’s website using your account and watch the show when it takes place on Thursday, December 8 at 4:30pm PT / 7:30pm ET, and December 9 at 12:30am GMT / 1:30am CET.

A quick glance over the giveaway rules reveals one interesting detail that could prevent you from winning the prize. You must have made a purchase on Steam between 12am GMT on November 14, 2021, and 11:59pm GMT on November 14, 2022, to be eligible.
You’ll also need to be in the US, Canada, UK, or EU to be in with a chance of winning a Steam Deck, and you must watch The Game Awards on the Steam website or on SteamTV.
You won’t win if you watch The Game Awards on YouTube, Twitch or other platforms, then.
The Game Awards is streaming live from the Microsoft Theater in LA and is hosted by Geoff Keighley. Tune in for awards, world premieres and musical performances, all in the name of celebrating video games.
Valve’s Steam Deck has been extremely popular with gamers. The chunky handheld lets you play your Steam library on the go, and it’s more than capable of running some of the best PC games available, albeit at lower graphical settings than what the best GPUs can achieve.
If you’ve been eyeing up Valve’s handheld, this is a great opportunity to potentially pick one up for free. All you have to do is register, and watch, and you just might win.
