Title: Playdate by Panic - [OT] for console/games/future season(s) discussion
Post by: Adrock on July 24, 2021, 11:32:11 PM
Since Playdate comes with 24 games in Season One, I wanted to create an official thread to organize discussion on the console and games. Honestly, I don't want to root through a mega thread to find comments on the various games.

Key Details:

I recall reading that Panic will work with eBay to remove pre-orders (as that is against eBay's policies), but I don't remember where I read that. In case I imagined that, requiring full payment up front should deter scalpers.

Official website for Playdate (https://play.date/)

Here is the full reveal from June 8: Playdate Update — 6/8/2021 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DeWGukDrc1U)

I don't think these work anymore, but in case they do for some people:

Two minute trailer if you can't be bothered to watch the 15 minute reveal: Say Hello to Playdate!! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdF3CnFvxg4)

Again, embedded video if it works for you:

Thanks for this! For some reason I'd completely forgotten the cover accessory existed, so that threw me for a loop! Also, I don't know why I thought this but I was under the misconception that it was actually "launching" this month, lol. A first wave of units coming end of 2021 makes sense, and with just 20,000 units in that bunch it sort of makes sense with the scale of what this is and embracing its niche status.

I kinda want one of these, but don't want to pay for it lol.

Curious though: if the games launch every week at a set time, but the launch is staggered after its initial (seemingly small?) shipment... Do people who buy/receive their units in say March 2022 just miss out on the first season of software?

I got my preorder in. A lot of people were complaining about issues with the website about not allowing international shipment. It worked for me on the third time. Thankfully I got it in soon enough to get the "late 2021" version.
