The very unusual Panic Playdate game console was introduced back in 2019, but only now has the company started the first shipments.
In a letter to customers, the company said that deliveries of the first batch started yesterday and will continue for the next few weeks. However, only those who pre-ordered among the first consoles from the first batch last year will be able to get the consoles from the first batch.
Also, Panic has promised to reveal plans for the second batch shipments later. Unfortunately, if anyone pre-orders a console now, they’ll have to wait until next year.
We’ve filled our production capacity for 2022, but we’re ramping up production to produce even more devices. The queue for 2023 is growing fast, so pre-order now and secure your place in the queue
As a reminder, Playdate stands out both for its highly unusual design and controls, as well as for its games and approach to accessibility in general.
