Analogue Pocket Has Bot Protection
Analogue has officially confirmed that more pre-orders for their Pocket GameBoy will release soon, and they’ll have bot protection as well. Bot protection already seems like a crucial tool during the pandemic, with countless resellers utilizing bots to snatch up every unit on consoles releasing right now, but the Analogue Pocket will not be snatched up by scalpers. Analogue is working hard to keep up with the demand for the Pocket and they apparently plan to keep it in stock throughout 2021.
The current global state of affairs has resulted in consequences that have affected the worldwide supply chain and this has temporarily slowed our ability to keep many of our products in stock,” said Analogue. “We are aware that many users are frustrated that Pocket pre-orders sold out quickly and both Super Nt and Mega Sg are currently unavailable. Pocket is not a Limited Edition product. See below for a description of all terminology Analogue products are presented in. More Pockets will be available for purchase in 2021. With all things considered, we will be doing our best to keep Pocket in stock in 2021.”
“Bear with us during these unusual times and know that we’re doing our best to get everything in stock or available for pre-order as soon as possible. Lastly, in an effort to meet unprecedented demand we have taken careful action to address bots, scalpers, and shipping calculator issues.”
