https://safirsoft.com Retro-styled Playdate handheld gets a price bump, but it's justified

What just happened? Panic’s upcoming Playdate handheld console – the one with the crank – is getting a price hike. But, the developer has seemingly justified the elevated cost with a couple of noteworthy incentives. Now all we need is a firm launch date.

On its official Twitter account, Panic said the final price of the handheld will be $179, which is up from the originally quoted price of $149. The system will ship with twice as much internal storage as previously stated (now 4GB) and there will be twice as many games available as launch (24 instead of the original dozen).

The Playdate team has also scheduled its first-ever video update. With it, the company will provide additional details about season one games, future titles and information on pre-orders.

The update will air on YouTube on June 8 at 9 a.m. Pacific. Worth mentioning is the fact that pre-orders will not start immediately after the video premieres. “We’ll give you plenty of warning before it’s go time,” Panic said.

Turned my attention to the music zone in Playmaker today. Works like a Kikkerland 15 music box but with instruments. Still much to do, but here’s a little tune for your timeline.
