From what I read, the devs are still working on various hardware aspects of the Zero.
What I want to know is, how likely is the following scenario with the GCW Zero?
-- GCW Zero outputting to TV (either thru AV or HDMI) (hopefully better quality than the NeoGeoX?!)
-- external game controller hooked up via USB (or some wireless method), i.e. PS3/XB360 pad
-- emulator outputting image+sound to TV without noticeable lag, with emulated game controlled by console controller without noticeable lag
Basically I want to use the Zero as a retro console (when not using it as a handheld). According to the Zero specs, this should be possible (and I would urge the devs to try to get this functionality going before the Kickstarter if possible). I don't think it's absolutely necessary; the Zero is attractive enough just as a retro/indie handheld, but I think a TON of people would find it easier to justify the expense if it could also be used as a plug'n'play retro console.
Also, is the use of wireless PS3 or XB360 pads a possibility with the Zero? I'm thinking it's probably not possible since I don't see Bluetooth on the Zero's specs. But then again, a cheap USB BT dongle could potentially solve that, so...
Feedback and thoughts from GCW devs would be especially appreciated.
