It's not from china, so yes it's a bit more expensive :)

In case no-one has noticed the gamegadget is now available to preorder.  If you use "gamegadget20" as a discount code it knocks 20 off the price, making a much more reasonable 79.99, code was e-mailed to me earlier in the official newsletter and it works, mine is now on order

This could be amazing.  I LOVE the fact that it's in the UK so should be well supported from the company if nothing else

You guys are happy paying for roms?

That's not meant to sound insulting, just a question.

If that means legally owning a rom - why not?

Well I'm imagining that it will be a similar setup to the Wii's Virtual Console network, which is great but games are limited and by the time you buy the Game Gadget and a handful of games it will ending up costing a lot of money for the sake of playing some 8/16 bit games.

I have most ROMs anyway but I like to think of it as supporting the industry.  I don't plan on buying all of them at all, but perhaps some of my favourites, if it helps support a) the developers of the games and b) the continued support of the console (remember, if it doesn't work, they'll go bust and where will the gamegadget 2.0 be!!!)

Don't know if somebody ever tell that, according to the FAQ it's the same cpu than the a380 and a320e one.
Not really a "dual-core" it just have a vpu

FAQ

What kind of cpu architecture is inside?
We use an Ingenic 4750 which is based on the MIPS32 (MIPS-II) family. It has custom 'X-Burst' extensions to accelerate some multi-media functions.


What OS will the SDK run on?
Linux/X86 only

Will it be easy to use SDL on it?
Integrating SDL is done by linking 'libsdl'.

Do it support OpenGL ES 1, 2?
No (GameGadget does not have additional 3D acceleration hardware).


What OS will the SDK run on?

Linux/X86 only (as of now additional versions in development)

Will it be easy to use SDL on it?
Integrating SDL is done by linking 'libsdl'.


What can it do?
Simple 2D games. 16bit or earlier emulation. Some simple 3d/2.5d games (Doom, Quake, etc).

What it can't do:
Modern games. 3D. Android or iOS (or other mobile platforms).

I'm sure gpSP can be ported to it (if the firmware isn't closed off for homebrew).

I know Wikipedia is open to be edited by anyone but the console's wikipedia page states that it will do GBA games, hopefully than the A380 anyway, can't get Medal of Honor Infiltrator to work past the title screen

Don't get your hopes up. Every gpSP port will suffer from the same game glitches. There are no developers working on the core.
