    Take a look at this - I was looking on the Dingoo Technologies website today, and I found... the Dingoo A360. How long have they had this for? I dunno what the menu is like, but it looks like it can play GBA games and is designed exactly like a GBA SP. Doesn't look like it's the same firmware as the A320 and A330 (look - only A and B buttons, no X and Y), but instead has other special emulators and GBA cartridge playback.

    So, what do you guys think?

    Looks like a GBA SP clone, looking at the specs they aren't like the other two dingoo models.

    Weird, I clicked the Google cached version, and now the site works [​IMG]
    It looks almost identical to a GBA SP o.o
    There seems to be a DS logo on the top too [​IMG]

    If it can use the GBA link cable and wireless adapter for working multiplayer, I'll buy one. [​IMG]

    Looks simple.

    I don't know why the model is called "A360" though. It seems like this would be less advanced than both the A320 and the A330 by any standards.

    It looks like a step backwards to me. These sort of units have been readily available for ages at places like DX, and the lack of face buttons means you wouldn't be able to play things like SNES and so on. Dont see the point in it at all really.

    btw, I thought the official site was dingoo.cn, and not .hk
    Or am I wrong with that? [​IMG]

    I just clicked the link for the Official Dingoo Technologies website from Dingoonity and it took me there. So unless they're wrong, that's the official Dingoo Technologies website.

    ...Ah, just took a look. dingoo.cn is Dingoo Digital's official website.

    ...
    If they made one like this with the extra buttons for SNES, I'd get it....


    or maybe not... I have a Dingoo A320 and I never use it...

    What would be the point of SNES buttons when you can't even emulate a SNES on a Dingoo A320 or the original SP properly?

    Just my thoughts, you probably know about the two so called "Dingoo" companies with each claiming the other to be the fake, like how apparently the A330 that looks like the PSP is apparently fake with the other Dingoo releasing their own A330, etc.

    I'm guessing there is a fake company, they used to work for the real dingoo but resulting from a dispute, decided to copy the hardware and reshell it in things like the A330 PSP look-a-like and this A360 GBASP look-a-like.

    It looks really cool, but I doubt whether it'd have proper SNES capabilities, and if it did, why not just use the L and R buttons to substitute for the X/Y buttons...? 100% GBA compatibility would be the only meaningful thing to me... >_< lol Lost Age...

    Then what would people do if they wanted to use the L and R buttons? [​IMG]

    The Dingoo A320 emulates snes just fine for the most part actually.

    Well, I was talking about SNES only =P IIRC SNES doesn't have L/R buttons does it? (as far as L/R being Shoulder buttons like on the GBA).
    Besides, I doubt the 360 could run both simultaneously xD

    Actualy... Snes does have shoulderbuttons...

    If i'm correct, it's one of the first controllers to have them.
    Most games also make use of them! [​IMG]
