I just pre ordered my GPD XD!!! I am super excited. I have been waiting years for a decent Clamshell Android based game device.

So a couple questions about what to expect.

PPSSPP emulator? What can I typically expect my settings to be at? Can it run 2x 4x resolutions at full speed?

DS Emulator? Based on the specs and previous GPD experience, what kind of compatability can I look forward to?
Can I expect to run DS games smoothly WITH filters applied?

Finally....Android Games like Dead Space, Zombie Driver and House of The Dead Overkill: The Lost reels. are these all controller compatible? Or will I be experiencing problems?

Finally....the photos seem like the unit has a matte black finish,,,please say that it does! I am so tired of glossy finishes getting all fingerprinted up :(

I prefer the Q9 to my actual DS... it even has cloud save game support!

And I have tested shin megami tensie strange journey, infinite space, mario kart, tales of innocence, moon, etrian oddysey, and disgea, all run without issues. Only game with issues was call of duty world at war... I believe I tested some more which all run fine too but can't rmember wich ...

Vast majority of android games which 'need' it have controller support, house of the dead does, dead space does not, but what does? Well (not exhaustive!) nfs most wanted, real racing 3, asphalt 8, mc 4/5, max payne, all 4 gta games, riptide gp 2 (and I think 1...) and all the other games by same studio, dead trigger 1/2, quake 1/2/3, rtcw, star wars jedi knight jedi outcast and academy, star wars KOTOR, ys chronicles, another world, little big adventure, shadowgun and shadowgun deadzone , and the list just goes on and on and on and ...

And what doesn't can usually be mapped perfectly (like nova3) or is designd for touchscreen (baldurs gate, icewind dale, rythm of fighres, world of goo, cytus, ...) so you don't want to play with the controller anyway...

and off course all the emulators do :D

Wait...so Dead Space has no controller support? I have seen several videos of people using controller input or devices like Xperia play with Dead Space...does that mean they have to program the controller to mimic the touch functions and swipes?

if you youtube it you will see a lot of people playing Dead Space on Nvidia Shield, using the controller....so it that simply a programmed software thing? And does the GPD XD have button mapping functions like that?

^ That's true, but none is better then the Xperia Play, because it was built for it. See below.  ;D

You're 100% right!!  8)
The second vid is meant to say Dead Space Mobile, NOT DS3.

First look at the REAL pictures for GPD XD Gaming handhelds. Can anyone find the difference comparing with the advertising ones we put before?

Since you've asked, willgoo:

The red line is the original image's screen size, while the blue is the new one's. Notice that the the old one includes the dead zone around the screen as part of it.
The total difference is about 20%, which is another inch of screen size.

WHAT A WASTE OF SPACE :(

Everyone keeps saying that, but in addition to it having all needed buttons (even luxuriously home and back buttons) , I?d figure a keyboard and especially a trackpad which everyone asked for would be super-annoying as if when you want to have  a solid hold on the handheld and are using the sticks you?d probably accidentally press it all the time. So I am happy itś just plastic...

I was talking about the top (screen). I wish the screen was 5.5" (or 6"?) instead of 5" :(

aw okay! MAny many people want them to put a trackpad or keyboard in between the controls on the bottom side... I figure that would be annoying. Bigger screen .. .nice, but 5 inch is big enough, and at least with 1280x720 it will REALLY be nice and sharp now :D (the 720p panel on the archos gamepad 2 looks stunning, so if this is same resolution and 5 inch, it will be *sharp*)

6" @1080p ($50 extra) would be perfect :)

50$ extra? Hell no! Plus, your framerates would be cut by +- 50% Now it can easily hold 60fps even in very intensive games like asphalt 8 multiplayer matches with everyone crashing on screen and such (I know this from Q9), 720p is welcome because altough asphalt 8 is awesome fun to play on Q9 it could be a bit sharper (it looks great already, like xbox 360 game, but jaggies sometimes), but 1080p is absolutely useless for a 5 inch screen and kills game performance!

Unless you add another 50$ for a faster GPU (Which would mean more cores, since the mali-t760 *is* the fastest GPU ARM currently has on the market already, but they could make 8 cores instead of 4...) to get the same game performance, but then it a 100$ more and it will probably overheat...

etc. This is fine. I think they found a good balance between price and quality ;-)

That there is a fine lookong machine! Im gladthe screen size is what it is. Should be fast and still add improved visibility to GBA and DS gsmes without upsizing needless amounts. I am pretty sure this little thing is my dream toy.

I think I speak for many when I say that more than a slightly better screen or performance, I prefer better controls and battery.
