CoolBaby RS-6 (BittBoy)- 9.99 UK Stock
« on: January 15, 2018, 11:36:30 am »
Seen these, clone of (or probably exactly the same as) the BittBoy for ?9.99 with free delivery, UK stock too:
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pocket-Handheld-Video-Game-Console-2-2in-LCD129-game-Mini-Portable-Game-Player/302597577897?hash=item4674389ca9:m:mOt_IfkVmhgXfAqFsRauUSQ

That's cheaper than FastTech! For those that don't know it's a micro size GameBoy that plays inbuilt NES roms, similar proportions to the RS-90.
Handhelds:
GPD Win, GPD XD 64gb, Pap KIII-Plus, RS-97, RS-90, New Bittboy, 3DS XL, DSi XL, GBA SP, GBBC Clone, Gameboy Pocket, PSP Go,
PC:

Psion 5 & 5MX
Tons of other old laptops and tablets.....

Yeah I grabbed a white one, ?10 is about the maximum I wanted to pay for one of these. Apparently they're slightly different from the BittBoy (minor board differences, dpad and buttons different plastic etc) but are functionally the same. These only have clean roms so no crappy hacks like on the BittBoy which is a bonus.

I like cheap devices this size, you can stick them in your pocket and if they break then it's no big deal. If the RS-90 gets hacked then this is kinda redundant so I'll give mine away.

This just arrived, runs games ok (it's identical to every cheap NES handheld out there) and it's a neat little thing. Feels very cheap and the controls feel a bit rough and lightweight, Mario Land runs a bit fast but everything else was ok. Screen has a thin film protector on so don't worry if it arrives with scratches, the screen itself is what you'd expect as in it looks ok but some colours aren't distinct - Adventure Island struggles with browns, oranges and reds blending into each other for example.

Ah so yours has off colours too? Was going to send mine back, I got it after watching this video and I think this guy got it from the same seller, his has colours which are true to the original:
<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXvkaB1IQko" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXvkaB1IQko</a>

I expect it's identical to the cheap NES handhelds you see on eBay, AliExpress, DX etc for the same price, the menu and games list is exactly the same as a lot of Famiclones too. There's a teardown in that video if you're curious, looks easy to open up. The only reason this one stood out is the mini Gameboy form factor which I can't not buy.

Bought one off ali for $15. Its got a couple games Ive wanted to play. I like the form factor and want something to tide me over till the RS-97 gets a custom OS etc. I really wish they would just sell this form factor as a hat for the Raspberry Pi zero W and a larger one for  the 3. That would sell amazingly well imo.

Has anyone tried a 3.5mm to 2.5mm converter to try out headphones?
