To be honest, my model is just a 16 GB and I have more than enough, I use a microSD for almost everything, and I only play a couple of android games.

Well I've ordered one.

GPD currently have a $10 (or ?6.71) coupon, however the Alipay system isn't like Paypal and there was no way to use it at checkout so unfortunately I paid full price. I've messaged them requesting to cancel it so I can re-order but I don't know how good their customer service is, I'll update on here if they actually answer questions or not.

Another 8 days processing time apparently which is ok for me, I'm not in any mad rush to get it as I have a Gameboy, DS and 3DS backlog to play through! I've funded this by repairing and selling faulty consoles and it will have only cost me around ?60 by the time the last one is sold so the price isn't a massive concern.

For anybody wanting to use the $10 coupon with Aliexpress you need to click on the coupon and then select something from the GPD store rather than using it at checkout like eBay/PayPal. You need to use a PC for this as I couldn't do it on my phone, checkout with Alipay is really quick too so make sure everything is right before clicking ok as there wasn't a confirmation screen like with eBay/PayPal.

One of these companies should come up with a dual micro SD solution, or perhaps a small storage spot for multiple extra cards. I personally have a PSP-3000 with an adapter that gets me 2 micro sd cards for a total of 128gb. That thing is full as it is, and that can't emulate everything these new devices can... especially when we're gonna probably see some devices soon running PS2/dreamcast/gamecube well.

Personally, I'd love to see a Windows-based pocket game system with a badass mobile card like the new X1. Windows just because emulation seems to be more mature and plus you have a huge backlog of other PC games. Idk, kinda rambled off-topic a bit.

If you're going to need this amount of storage, you're better off with cloud storage. Just open an account on Mega and upload some of your data there, that should give you 50 GB more than you currently have with no obligation what-so-ever.

But if you want a serious mobile gaming machine, nothing you want can be gotten at the size you're asking for, we're still not there - even for Gamecube. But, that's not saying it isn't possible - seeing as streaming is maturing, you can pair a device like a GPD XD with a gaming laptop that can be in your backpack or somewhere else. That will allow you both greater portability and power, but will be very expensive, and not as portable as just a handheld.

Well mine is on its way, got shipping confirmation this morning. Just a quick note to AliExpress buyers - you might want to extend the buyer protection time as this was shipped a while after ordering leaving under a month for their protection scheme. I've requested to extend mine for 7 days which should cover it.

Should be 7 days extra on top of almost a month, according to GPD it'd being sent via courier now anyway so I may not need the extra time.

Well they have to accept it first! Mind you they requested an extension on shipping so I can't see why they wouldn't, should have it within a week anyway.

I cannot wait to get mine because I'm gonna use mine for nes,snes,n64,gb/gbc/gba,ps1,psp,dreamcast and android games. I love my vita but this is gonna be my new travel partner because I love the style and how portable it is and what it can do. So far the only thing I saw I might not like about it is the clicking shoulder buttons but other than that I think I'm gonna love it.

Yeah one of the reasons I sold my G5A was that it wasn't portable enough, the screen wasn't adequate for watching video and there wasn't much storage even with a 64gb MicroSD so having original Android games were a compromise. The XD seems to solve all these problems and I love the clamshell design and XL size.

I cannot wait to get it because the first game I'm gonna play is Zelda oot n64. I'm a huge Zelda fan can wait to play most of all the Zelda games on the gpd xd besides the GameCube and wii versions. It's a list of games I'm gonna play when I get it from Zelda,Mario,tekken, dead or alive, dbz, shooter games and rpg games. I'm to excited to wait but hopefully I can get the money soon to get it.

Nice and shiny. Looks like they put a thick coating of paint to make up the bad paint jobs on the first run.

Yup it's nice, will do a family shot tomorrow with the XD, 3DS XL and the DSi XL.

Seems really well built apart from the hinge slightly pushing the plastic on the right trigger when it opens, if this doesn't ease up over time I'll open it up and sort it.

Screen is lovely and very responsive, buttons are nice especially the clicky triggers and the dpad is very good. Have no idea where the complaints about the dpad come from as I find it very easy to use. Only used the sticks fleetingly with N64 but they feel good.

Screen seems to be under 60hz though so hopefully this gets sorted in a firmware update, might already have been fixed. Should make a nice gaming portable and a pocket Kodi machine.
