Analogue has announced that pocket pre-orders will reopen on December 14th at 6:00 PM. The pocket will cost a little more.
Analogue announced the news in a new blog post, saying that “Due to the higher price tag, the Pocket is now $219. All other Pocket accessories remain the same.” Before the price went up, the pocket analog was priced at $199.
Those lucky enough to be able to buy the pocket divide into three groups. This was done to ensure “anyone gets a pocket order”.
Group A has an expected shipping window in the first quarter of 2022, Group B in the fourth quarter of 2022 and Group C in 2023. These groups are categorized on a “first come, first get” basis. It also states that “the application will be provided with an update indicating the group of consumers in which it is classified.”
Analog ensures that consumers can purchase two pockets per person. Plus, she says, “This was done because there is a shortage of spare parts all over the world.” In addition, orders can be canceled and canceled products will be compensated.
The pocket analog was announced in 2019 and the device is capable of playing three generations of Game Boy games. In addition, there are different adapters to play more games. The device is capable of displaying games at a much higher resolution than the original.
