New Stock Update: Largest Batch Yet! Preorder To Lock-In Your Console

New Stock Update: Largest Batch Yet! Preorder To Lock-In Your Console

Hi all!

I hope you are well!

It’s Jack here from 8BitCADE! It’s been a while…. But there’s good news! We are working on some super cool projects that… I can’t quite talk about yet! 

We are also getting closer and closer to the pre-order shipping date so I wanted to start posting updates to keep you informed! We are super excited to send out this next batch for you guys as it will be the largest batch to date!

Our Largest Batch To Date!

It’s almost been 1 whole year since the first Kickstarter – it’s been a crazy ride! In light of that, we wanted to make sure everyone who is interested in getting a console, can actually get one! This will be the largest batch to date and we are super excited to get them in your hands!  

What Stage Are We At With This Batch?

It’s been super fun and stressful making sure we can scale the production to the size we want to be at. Like any startup, we had some setbacks along the way. The chip shortage is still very real and has definitely affected us – which is why it took us a little bit longer to source the parts as the prices have increased by about 30 to 40% – crazy right? 

Right now we are waiting on the screens to be delivered by tomorrow or the day after. Once arrived, we will be able to start testing, packaging and shipping the orders out to you!

When Can I Expect A Tracking Number?

We are super excited to say we have quite a few pre-orders for this batch. Good problems right? We will try our hardest to ship them all out as soon as we can but please appreciate we only have so many hands!

How Can I Get In Contact With You?
