    It's funny because soulx says "They're jokes!" but you know he's dead fucking serious, it's just if he said he was serious then he'd be labeled the obvious fanboy he is.

    BUT LET'S GET BACK ON TOPIC. I agree with gamefan

    if the price mentioned is right I may definatley jump on it getting one, just hope few more emu's are added to mix like a Sega CD one and that the they are half decent

    Shit because you can be tedious and at times take things rather seriously. I on the other hand is a mere cretin, and I take pride in being a cretin.

    but I'll end it there, we can continue over PM if you wish.

    IT GOES BOTH WAYS.



    baccck on topic.

    If its priced around $100, then it's a must-buy. At least until the Vita gets hacked.

    Even at $100 I'd be weary. I mean it's still a cheap Chinese knock off at it's core.

    Anyway, would you get this at ~$100 over Ouya?

    It's portable, Ouya isn't.

    Having a portable emulator that has all the inputs for basically any console is incredibly tempting.

    True, but some people will be willing to buy it, nonetheless.

    If it was lowered to around $80 or even $70, I'd consider buying it.


    Yes, one of the reasons I favour this over the Ouya.
    But as you said, this Droid X360 is just a Chinese knock off, so I'm stuck in-between the two. :P

    Sounds great and all but it being a chinese knockoff loses some points with me. Seems promising.

    I forgot
    Keep in mind these are Android emulators, so they aren't perfect and some games may not be playable.

    I like the looks of this, but it needs a decent processor. I see the 1.5GHz, but is that a Tegra, Snapdragon, something else? Single core, dual core, quad?

    If that's indeed the case, count me out. I'll stick to using a Wiimote or PS3 controller via Bluetooth for my gaming needs.

    lol, emigre fanboy'd first.


    back on track, this thing actually looks nice... assuming the PSX and N64 emulators are any good. At least, I suspect the PSX one will be okay, it's the N64 that's rather hard to run. properly. not even sure if the specs have enough muscle to emulate it... :/

    cool! but what's up with the name?
    I image them thinking: "oh, it has the same design as the PlayStation Vita... so we're gonna name it... X360" :glare:
    makes total sense

    Seems interesting enough for a portable emulation machine, but the PSP can already emulate most of the things mentioned properly except some N64 games.
    What I'd like to see is one of those many portable GC mods you see on youtube, those look much more interesting considering how novel the idea of a portable game cube is

    Will this be powerful enough to play Sonic 4 ep 2?

    I just saw the video. The portable couldn't emulate Super Smash Bros. 64 well. If it can't emulate that, then I fear for it's efficiency with other N64 games. (Hopefully it'll support updates for the emulators.)

    There are actually some great games on Android (such as GTA 3), so having buttons would be nice.
    But this can't emulate PSP or PS2 so I'll pass. Okay PS2 is a stretch, but I was hoping for a 1-to-1 PSP mode.

    Scratch that, this is just an Android phone with buttons, and minus the phone.

    just buy a tablet and a ps3 controller

    this pos is already underpowered and will just be abandoned by the makers after making a quick profit
