any thoughts on this? a friend of mine got one. i've been playing damn near perfect emulations of metal slugs 1 and X, and "zed blade" which i'd never heard of before but is actually great, all running at full speed with sound. for that reason alone i want to buy one. nes and snes emulators seem to be coming along reasonably well too, although they aren't quite as hot as the neo-geo.

its pretty good from what i heard, but some of the emulators still arn't up to speed, and it uses 2 AA batterys... so be ready to spend tons of money on those (you could try the rechargables, but i heard they only last 2 hours when playing games and such, for comparasin, on normal ones they last 4-6 hours on video and games (says so on their website))

also, the pricetag is a bit big for something like this (200 bucks)

when you compare it to the psp which has a lithium ion battery, 800x480 display (gpx2 has 320x240) and unlike the gp2x, the psp supports 3d rather well.

overall its only really worth for the emulators (which arnt really all that legal, nor all that good yet.)

give it time and maybe the next version wont have a craptastic qvga screen and will have a freakin lithiom ion battery (anything with AA batteries in it these days comes off pretty cheap).

Fuck you and your battery elitism. I hate proprietary batteries. On a long plane/train journey? In a foreign country without an adapter? Then you're fucked, especially with the PSP's shitty battery life. AAs, on the other hand, can be picked up anywhere.

And what happens when the battery's on its way out and lasting 10 minutes a charge? Okay, with something like the PSP or DS, replacement batteries are likely to be plentiful for a while, but an obscure korean handheld from a company likely to have disappeared two years from now? good luck.

I don't know about you, but I am pretty sure that about 99.9% of the time, I am not in either of those situations, and batteries still suck pretty hard.
