"We can't get more than our current CPU for 730 days - you can't believe it." . About a day after Valve announced that its upcoming PC would "be delayed by two months," the exotic Playdate console, which was originally scheduled to hit the market by the end of 2021, did the same on Thursday. p>
In the case of such a naughty yellow system as the Game Boy, its makers at Panic have decided to do just about everything that could delay its system until "early 2022" — and the first 20,000-plus orders are often put off., he reveals.

Broken Battery Panic wrote: "We found a number of units with batteries so empty that the Playdate didn't turn on at all - and couldn't charge." This was exacerbated by the fact that the preview devices sent to members of the press (really yourself included) did not reproduce these battery issues. While investigating, Panic halted all Playdate production until a new battery was made available.
