Is there any input lag when emulating GBA games on a PSP GO?

    Hi.
    I'm very interested in buying one to play some games on the TV using a PS3 controller, but I can't stand input lag. So, is there any? Thank you.

    If that's what you indend to use it for, you should probably look for a different device. While there isn't any noticable input lag, displaying on the TV is pretty spotty and rudimentary - FuSa SD is the best you can count on, but I'm not sure if it's compatible with the PSP Go. The PSP Go is a handheld console and it excels at just that - it's not going to replace a home console.

    As long as there is no input lag I'm fine :).

    What I mean is that you may or may not be able to get fullscreen mode to work (only FuSa SD supports it these days, and as I said, compatibility is spotty). If you won't be able to get it to work, you'll end up with a centered frame like this:

    Naturally it's less than desirable and painfuly apparent when you play on an HDTV.

    There is the alternative of using RemoteJoy Lite, a PC, a USB and an HDMi cable to "divert" fullscreen display to the TV, but this may introduce some display lag.

    I see, thanks. Maybe it's best to get myself a component cable for the gamecube, seems like it's the best option, but pricey (and use the GB player). Thanks for the help.

    Honestly, you might buy any random Android device with mini-HMDI and Bluetooth and use that - the Game Boy Advance does not require a whole lot of horsepower for full speed emulation. ;)

    Are you sure I won't experience any input lag then? I can't stand it. That's the reason I don't play SNES games on my Wii.

    I don't think you should - these days Android devices have high-speed Bluetooth. If you have a Wii, why won't you just get a Gamecube controller? A wired controller equals near non-existant lag. That being said, you shouldn't be experiencing input lag on the Wii anyways - are you sure your emulators are up-to-date? The Wii is sort of the go-to affordable console in terms of emulators these days.

    Yeah. If you search the net you will find plenty of people crying about the framerate on wii, and I can't stand the lag. GB player sounds the best to me though.

    If you're only interested in Game Boy Advance games then fair enough, it will serve you well. It's practically a Game Boy Advance piggy-backing on the Gamecube, so you shouldn't experience any lag whatsoever.
