Would these run RetroFW/Useless firmware too?
Anyway I've been looking to get a retro handheld for a very long time.
I don't like clamshell, since they seems very flimsy and the hinge would be worn out with usage. I like the GBA micro and the original candybar GBA, but why only 4 buttons (ab and LR). Yes, the original GBA does that, and probably these companies took the moulds/cases from GBA case factory or some sort.
4 buttons is the bare minimum, up to neo-geo games, but placing the other 2 on the shoulder is kind of uncomfortable. Capcom games would require 6 buttons specially the fighting series.
LDK is the sweet spot IMO, everything from the price to size to hardware. It's just near-perfect for me. And now I read that the creator are currently designing the sequel. Glad I didn't bought the clear version! Probably will save some money for the next version.
Would love to see other kind of ingenic handheld console, in candybar formfactor. Of course there's RS-97. The "cartridge" was almost a deal breaker for me. But as soon as I see mini USB port, I was turned off instantly.
Any other devices you found apart from these and within your sticky topic?
