Retroid Pocket 2 - Android Emulation w/ Multiplayer focus
« on: August 03, 2020, 03:16:24 am »
So I just bought the Retroid Pocket 2

Surprised there's not more discussion around the device given the comparitively low price point, the apparent high build quality of the original Retroid Pocket (never owned it so based off third party comments) and the ease of Multiplayer play (something none of the equivalent devices do out of the box)

Anyone else have any thoughts on this one?

Can't wait for my pre-order to arrive! I am super stoked that it runs android, ease of multiplayer, and the form factor. There's a dedicated sub reddit with more info at /r/retroid

I've bought the new 16Bit colour version, looking forward to it, its a shame its not just a bit more powerful, will be better once the update to Android 8 ;)

yeah I'm very interested on this device. compared to the overpriced GPD XD and its clones, at $80 this is very tempting. PSP performance is meh but still might be able to squeeze some performance in there since most reviews don't tinker with the PPSSPP settings much. I'm all good if it can run tekken 5 comfortably.
