The delays accumulate and definitely affect everyone in the video game, since after Valve and his Steam Deck, it’s Panic’s turn to inform the players / users / buyers that his famous hand-cranked console will not be released. ultimately not delivered at the end of the year as planned. Remember, last July, when the pre-orders opened, all the stock had been sold in just 20 minutes and the lucky ones then had to receive their copy for fall / winter 2021. It will finally be until 2022 for the early buyers may receive their machine, not because of any shortage of a component, but because the battery in the handheld console needs to be replaced. A concern spotted at the last minute and which will cost the manufacturer a certain amount, who prefers to send his finalized Playdate very carefully than to have to manage such expensive returns afterwards. We remind you that this delivery for early 2022 only concerns the first 50,000 copies, the others will have to wait until the end of 2022, or even early 2023 to discover this unusual machine.
