Are You Ready To Crank?
Panic’s new Playdate system is officially available for order. Clocking in at $179.00 before tax and shipping, 20,000 units plan to ship this year. You don’t have to worry about it selling out though. Orders can be placed at anytime. If you’re not in the first 20,000 you won’t get it until at least early 2022 but you can still get an order in.
Credit and debit cards are the main accepted form of payment though Playdate’s payment portal supports Apple and Google Pay. Currently the system and a cover are available for order. The cover adds $29.00 to your cost. If you purchase them together however you get the pair for $199.01, saving $8.99.
