After 3 years of waiting, Playdate is finally a reality since the first copies (which were pre-ordered in August 2021) are being shipped to their users. On the press side, we received our copy a week ago and since then, we have fun with this machine not like the others. If we have already offered our unboxing with our velvet white gloves, PANIC has updated its official website to clarify some important details for the marketing of this playDate. First of all, it is useful to recall its concept, based on a seasonal system to buy. The first, included when buying the portable console, has no less than 24 games in total! It was twice that the initial figure that had been promised at the first prototypes that we could try at the Pax West 2019.
Basically, buying the PlayDate at $ 179 (about 164 €), you are insured to leave with 24 games that will be downloadable over the days and weeks of use. Indeed, the principle of games functions as surprise packages that we discover in the right of its manufacturer who sends a random game on the player's machine. The latter is immediately alerted by a message and the title can then be downloaded. These 24 games thus arrive as and when, allowing the player to discover each game and his atypical gameplay based on this crank system, in addition to the usual keys. Exactly, to see more clearly at the game level, PANIC has updated the list of 24 titles from its official page. There are for all tastes and genres, and on the side of the developers, there are also we know (like Keita Takahashi, the creator of Katamari Damacy) and others who are new in the video game. The idea is to trust them and appreciate what they have to offer us.
