Playdate sold every single one of the 20,000 Units in Less Than 20 Minutes
Playdate is a 1-bit handheld made by Panic Inc. The hand-held console went up for Pre-order on the 29th of July, however to Panic’s expectation the console sold out quickly. The Playdate had actually sold out all 20,000 units in just 20 minutes. On average, that’s less time than a gentle jog around the block. Panic mentioned that their shipping estimator accurately stated the said results of the pre-order. Panic did mention that as they expected this result, anyone who pre-ordered from the next wave would be on the waiting list for the next batch coming in late 2021, which also means orders are still being accepted, which also means some people may not get theirs until 2022, but at least they are guaranteed a console. (It would be nice if a certain at-home console company did this as well).
