Justin told me that 110 units remaining will ship after Christmas and keep shipping till complete.

Are these devices currently in USA?

Sergio Majic is danilop2k2 aka GCWB and he has been refunded via Google wallet and western union for his first 65.00 as promised last night after he said who he was.

When this all started he wanted a refund and I hooked him up with several people on the forum to sell it too each time he high balled the price above what the console actually sold for so none were interested.

Sorry for bringing this up again but FYI he is today also banned from AtariAge because of dumping roms of Colleco homebrew releases and reselling them (and possibly illegal copies) on eBay.

Was thinking of the following...

Advertising on multiple handheld forums

InsertCoin on Engadget

Gizmodo forums

Tomshardware forums

Any other ideas?

Besides targeting gamers, you should also try to get the attention of developers at forums like Gamasutra. Although the ports and emulators the Zero plays are great, having a selection of original games developed specifically for the Zero could really help it stand out from the crowd of emulator handhelds currently on the market.

I don't like the idea of exclusives. GCW is an open platform and any game written for it should be portable to other devices. If all the game developers from the past kept their software exlusive to their original platforms, nowadays we'd have no games to run on GCW ;)

definatly, i think exclusive is a wrong choice of words, though i do very much like the idea of some open source software built for the gcw, the ability to port to another device is of course included as this is open source, i just think it'd be nice  to have some gcw zero specific games that take advantage of the zero's hardware capabilities. coding competitions are always fun, they seemed to work well with the caanoo in produceing some decent original games, such as paper wars.

A little bit off topic but semi related and rather interesting...

That new Neo Geo X handheld is using the exact same CPU as the GCW:



What's the bet that the OS and emulators from the GCW could easily be ported over to the Neo Geo X console. Would you guys allow this if it could be done or would that be out of the question?

Our OS is open source so I'm sure it could be done but components such as wifi if it has any and other drivers probably won't work on it. You would also need to reverse the gpio to make controls and other functions work. It's a huge task not to be taken lightly.

But end of the day if a third party developer wanted to I guess he could the hard part all along has been the drivers making connections and getting source or getting vendor of a component to compile source for us was and still is not an easy process.  There is also just actually having to write a driver from scratch assembling a team to tackle it could be very hard also.

It's technically possible to port OD on neogeox but is it reasonable?

Neogeox is more restricted hardware-wise: no usb-port (though you can solder one), no external sd-card but a proprietary non-standard cartridge slot, fewer buttons, no d-pad but analog, fewer RAM (128 Mb).

It seems almost impossible that someone would buy a more expensive but more restricted device to run OD on.

The external SD card is standard, they're just using a proprietary file format for their game cards.

really don't want to sound mean, the Neo Geo will be a good candidate for ports to our GCW Zero if the specs are right surely?!

I mean it has less memory, proprietary file format etc.. but same processor? so we have the advantage over it surely?

people are just casting about for "alternatives" I have a Pandora and it is as close an alternative that I know, but sometimes the full keyboard and foldable screen do get in the way,

don't get me wrong though I love it and it's battery life etc, wish they would have shipped better, the GCW Zero is much further along than they are. ..

 I will keep a Pandora myself but sell the other.. if I ever get it, but the GCW Zero I am likely to keep 2 for myself and sell the rest I get  I admit so I can make Frankenstein colours by swapping buttons :-P
