Hey, well i decided getting a new game console since i hate my DS and ill be selling it for 50$, anyone got any suggestion for a nice little game console for that price? i was thinking of getting a GBA SP clone from R4I 3DS for 40$, looks very nice but i also saw there is a GBA clone from DX but they were banned? since i saw the GBA clone i don't wanna buy the GBA SP, the main reason i wanted a GBA SP is because i always wanted one as a kid and still want one but when i see a GBA with a modded back light and etc...
But unfortunately they were banned... and had no multiplayer connection... (a friend of mine has a GBA SP) i was also thinking of getting a used PSP but for 50$ there's no way, also i don't like that much the design of the PSP, a large chocolate bar, the main thing i like in the PSP is that they have an actual operative system even though it's not that serious. At the end, can someone recommend me a game console that has the design of a real game console, from 45$ down, (5$ Pizza!) with free shipping worldwide and that has positive comments and isn't complete fresh bull****. Thanks!

Seems nice, looks like a micro though i have one and i hate it...

Hmm... should i maybe get a used PSP somehow add some more money or get a GBA SP clone? i already had a micro and im not a fan of 2D games much...
I think ill get bored of it after a while.

Portable, $50, and has 3D games narrows your choice down to the used PSP. Sure people might say there are other options like the dingoo, but things like that have maybe five games designed specifically for them and those are usually pretty crappy. A used and hacked PSP gets you every PSP game, most PSX games, and (some/most)-if-not-all games from every 8-, 16-, and 32-bit console and handheld. Sure you'll probably also have to buy a memory stick, but it's pretty much the only thing near your price range that meets all of your other criteria.

If you want an affordable handheld console that's not a DS, I'd suggest the PSP since it has loads of games and even more emulators, but seeing that you're not interested in that either, I suppose a Dingoo or any Android-based handheld console would suit your needs well.

i never said i didn't like the PSP, i only said i didn't like the DS and the Micro, i've been reading also that PSP games are known as boring, still i don't think im gonna find a used PSP for 50$, i think im just gonna get the GBA SP afterall...

Yep, i just hate the idea of the new design, but what i most hate is that afterwards they adopted that design for almost every new handheld game console Nintendo produced!
About the PSP i lost interest because a friend of mine has one and he was willing to sell me it for 30$ but after playing 20 different games from all type of games, i found it extremly boring. (Personal idea only)

The PSP has fantastic controls and great specs for emulation purposes considering the price. As for PSP games, they're high quality and not at all boring - I suggest checking out GBATemp's must-have PSP games list if you're looking for the best of the best.

but i don't think im gonna be able to get a PSP for under 50$ with shipping to my country lower than 10$, i gave a bid to a original DS but im 100% sure someone is gonna put more. I'm buying the GBA SP if none of these work.

...yeaaah, I dunno who told you PSP games are "boring", but whomever it was has no idea what they're talking about...lol.

Definitely go for a PSP. Not only do you have the entire PSP library to play as well as PS1, but you can also emulate SNES/NES/GB/GBC/GBA/N64 games (to a point) as well. The PSP is like...the perfect handheld.
