ProJames-CHM, 25 May 2019Your reply lacks any sense. YOU said those games are addicting.... moreyou sure have lots of time keep expressing about games again and again and again.

I have now lost interest NOT because I can't argue, but simply because YOUR reply is not important enough and already getting me bored.
you can keep commenting about games tho, while I'm gonna get me a coffee and relax

YOU said those games are addicting.
YOU said nobody wanted to name good Android games to me.

I denied nothing. And you're twisting reality. Your point was that there are a lot of good Android games. You must prove your point. I have nothing to prove here. You failed to support your argument

And by posting your opinion on a public place, you expose yourself to diverging opinions. You can't blame others because they don't see things like you do. And you can't blame them for voicing their opinion. If you want to do that, China is the perfect place for you.

And I don't care wether you care about others or not.
YOU came first uninvited to discredit my comment in the first place. But with denying it, YOU failed to back your argument

I was hoping the crank also incorporated a dynamo to help charge the thing. Gameboy AE (Apocalypse Edition) FTW.

The categories that you excluded might be bad for you but addictive to other people taste, and this goes the other way around.

Now this subject is getting old, so I (might) be too lazy to reply any further replys

NL, 24 May 2019How many of those games are actually worth playing? -A heck lot ... moreUnfortunately you failed to enumerate good Android games. And the categories I excluded are very bad, cheap and quick to duplicate games. Gambling is not gaming. Pay-2-win is not gaming (do you seriously like those games?), battle royals are awful and much harder to play with touch screen, and frankly do you like ultra monetized match-3 games?

Do you people even read. Already complaining about the price. Playdate will come with a 'season' of 12 games that are INCLUDED IN THE PRICE of the console. When the console releases, it will come with one game. Then, every week after that, the console will get one new game. You actually get what you paying for.

Next time before you put the work suck. Look at how much you are worth before you claim a billion dollars worth of android "Suck"

It is 100X better to have control buttons for one. Also, we all know how games drain phones battery fast. A gaming device will make life so much easier and leave the smartphone to do other things .... Also a standalone device allows the brand to have direct control over the whole experience. Please child think before you name something pointless.

You can discard every slots/casino game, any Pay-2-Win game, any match-3 game, any battle royale game (bad games, but your -140$ Android won't be able to play those anyway),
-Why discard? The games you dont like doesn't mean other people dont like them either. You are not the benchmark of individual preferences.

any game where you see more ads than you actually play...
-have you ever heard of offline games? Hundreds or thousands games can still fully playable even you turn airplane mode on

The price is justifiable. This is a niche device that won't sell millions and it's not meant to. I personally wouldn't buy this if it cost 1 dollar, let alone 150. But a few people who want to play games on a Gameboy with crank will buy it, and this is meant for them

Look.. This product has a purpose.. a different purpose. U see kids are getting addicted to smartphones.. these days.. this is for all the kids.. just a basic gaming device with no additional functions unlike smartphones. So yes this product serves a unique purpose.
