    Well. i looked into getting a dingoo A320 a while ago from shoptemp (one of the only internet-buy sites i trust.) But it was mostly because of the GBA emulation. So i'm wondering now what would emulate GBA games better, the A320 or a GBA expansion pack? Also, i heard that there's a handful of games on the NDS that use expansion packs too.


    Thanks in advance.

    The Expansion Pack. There's no emulating needed, as the games play natively.

    Does it also runs smoother then the A320 Dingoo? If so, my choice might be harder or easier depending on the answer.

    well it's common sense ain't it? of course the gba games will play better on it's native hardware compared to emulation, so the gba slot 2 is better, if you don't have a slot 2 i prefer the psp for it's bigger screens [​IMG]

    I think i'm going with the Dingoo, i think. It seems that i got alotta money today so now i can buy it and still have enough for other stuff i plan to buy.

    Also, it has a wonderswan and ColecoViseon Color emulator. So i'm buying both.

    Why not buy a GBA SP+ and a EZ-Flash 4? I think for GBA it's the best solution.

    Well. I already have a flashcart and seeing it's still working like a charm, i have no intention of replacing it anytime soon. However, i thought the Dingoo would be a nice addition to my gaming set anyway. As i found alot of really neat homebrew for it on dingoo-scene and Dingoocity. The expansion pack i have a couple more reasons to buy.

    I got a Dingoo A-320 several months, It is wonderful to play games with my lovely A. Besides, my A has the most features of MP4. Thus, my A320 = a handheld game console + a MP4. More then cosy-effective. [​IMG]
