Interesting design. But, no removable battery? And the bezel mockup is ripped straight from the GCW Zero. The start and select descriptions are too close to the buttons themselves.
Maybe they should be put on top?

And agreed about the bezel, I immediately thought about the GCW Zero when I saw it  :D

It looks really sexy to me. Especially the red one. But for a handheld designed for old-school games, that D-pad looks misplaced :(
It'll be fine for PSX though.

What's your experience so far? Are the buttons responsive and comfortable?

+1

I prefer a "classic" dpad position. It's more confortable imho

The device looks really nice!

Look sweet.

But the dual joystick and L2R2 buttons wouldn't be necessary as PS1 games are rather hit and miss on this chip?

Are the joysticks clickable (L3R3)? Would be very useful for native game ports such as quake and build engine games though.

And the size is a tad bigger than pocketgo?

Oof, that D-Pad placement... wouldn't most people be getting this primarily for 2D games? Those are by in large the vast majority of games this thing can play, why the Xbox layout for the few 3D games?

Geez, I'm afraid I won't be getting this one, unfortunately. Playing SNES, GBA, NES, GB/C, PC Engine and Genesis with my thumb shoved down on the left side is just too uncomfortable, I won't be able to enjoy the games. What a disappointment.

I hope they eventually make a revision for us 8/16bit era fans.

I do not know what to do ... If they really launch a review with the dpad repositioned, I would buy it for sure.

They should switch the analogue pad and the d-pad!

Yes, I also think the left stick position should be swapped with the dpad.

Has anyone heard about a rumoured RG-351 JZ4770 portrait version, i saw it mentioned in a youtube comment. The comment stated it is planed for release sometime after the RG-350 release.

Keep it, otherwise You might regret it like some (including me) who have sold their retro handhelds. I wouldn't sell a gcw0 because it is a special one despite it's hardware flaws.

Do you really think that moving the dpad/analog is possible this late into the development?

Both the PCB and case would need major revision... both not trivial...

Your best bet would be waiting for another re-cased version of the RG-350 - kind of like the LDK for the RS-97.
Essentially the same device in a different form factor.

@lazanti BTW, the sheet of paper that the RG-350 is resting on in your post with two photos looks kind of interesting.

Instructions to a plastic model of a manga girl by the looks of it? :)

I used to have too many handhelds... I have started to sell them off as I do not get time to play them all... If the GCW had more support I would keep it, but I may wait to see if teh RG350 does what it says it can :) Then I will get one 100%...

Problem with waiting is I think the GCW may lose value when the RG350 is released  :o

GCW Zero still doesnt have some perks available, like HDMI.?
Why this should be different, since it is similar HW? Am I wrong?
