The Playdate Handheld
« on: July 29, 2021, 00:33:22 AM »
The Playdate is a very unique handheld being released at the end of the year(pre orders begin Thursday July 29th).   John talks about the system on this video.  The official page is here:  https://play.date/

It's a neat idea but it looks pretty gimmicky. I'll have to see what developers can do with it but I know a lot of people are really looking forward to this.

Lol yeah that's the other problem. For what it can do it does seem expensive.
