Playdate A New Handheld Gaming System

Playdate is a small pocket sized device from app developer Panic, who said they worked on the project over the last four years “just for fun.”

“It’s designed to deliver a jolt of fun in between the times you spend with your phone and your home console; something to fill the moments when you just want a game you can pick up and play,”

Playdate’s crank comes from Teenage Engineering, the Swedish electronics company known for their fun, out-of-the-box takes on synthesizers and audio products.

It has a black-and-white screen with high reflectivity, a crystal-clear image, and no backlight. And of course, it has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB-C, and a headphone jack. Playdate includes games — a full season of them. The games will be delivered over-the-air, once a week for 12 weeks, and they’ll be a surprise: when the new game light flashes, you’ll never know what you’re about to play.

Playdate will ship in early 2020, with pre-orders anticipated in late 2019 for US $149.
