    But the GPX2 is just so cool, I always loved the joystick on the Gamepark, the best controller on any handheld IMO. Not only that but at times being able to use AA batteries is so damn handy, I used to use normal rechargable batteries with my GP32 Blu and they lasted ages. If you're not bothered about offical first/third party games, I'd grab one, I'm pretty sure you won't regret it.

    Give us your impression if you decide to get one, I'd have been so tempted if I didn't have too many consoles & handhelds already:rolleyes:

    This looks a great bit of kit.

    I am hoping to get one in the next few weeks, I will post a review when I do.

    I just got one of these and megadrive emulation is excellent, its almost 100% evey game ive tried played excellent.

    Its a great little unit and development is moving fast for it, someone has made a pretty good amiga emulator with mouse and keyboard support and each day it seems that new updates are coming out all the time for the unit.

    A good source of info is on the wiki page -

    That's pretty good value, would go for one although the DS lite is priority number 1 right now!

    Yeah, it's a bad time for wallets right about now, so much to spend on in the world of gaming. My girlfriend thinks I'm a nutcase for keep getting the credit card out on more gaming stuff:laugh:
