  1. Think of it in terms of the number of hours of entertainment you will get out of it. 40 hours? that’s like 2.50 an hour. Cheaper than a movie.

  2. I’d recommend picking up a 1000 or 2000 model of the PSP if looking for a one-stop emulation portable. The only use I have for it is running emulators. It does all of the above plus: Atari (all models), SCUMMVM, MSX, Game Boy, Wonderswan, and even PSX. Quite an impressive hacking community, but no where as pick up and play as the above.

    This machine is actually called a dingoo a320, it was unimaginatively titled “pocket retro game emulator” by the fools at thinkgeek to avoid competition.
    You can buy it from from dealextreme, chinavision, gbax and a number of other online retailers for a cheaper or similar price.

  4. Daammmn flatmush. What do you got against thinkgeek anyway. You’ve copied and pasted that same response to most, if not all comments regarding the dingoo a320 in the world wide blogs. I was doing research before I bought one of these things and every result from goggle.bomb has your same reply- now that’s ‘unimaginative’.
