    Just wondering if theres any updates/changes in this space? Only thing i can think of is that the Clockwork Gameshell seems to be popular now (if its now availble on amazon) I was looking into that one actually but was put off by the screen (Also I have no idea if that would meet my needs of GBA and SNES support)

    Personally, I would love to see simply a better bittboy pocket go (The wide one) that had a good processor for SNES games

    Yeah, I go on about snes a lot, but tbh I'm not interested in playing special chip games, just mainly I want to play Earthbound (Although giving mario rpg a play would be nice...)

    Well, the latest updates I’ve seen are the new analogue console, and some more Chinese ones

    at the moment I’m looking on actually buying one! that RG350 looks good, aperently it has the fastest processor for non android and runs a lot of ps1 game’s at full speed..

    Get a GPD XD+ The unit runs off of android and can rull all the way up to Dreamcast/ps1/n64/saturn & snes.

    where the potential goes to zero
    I'm completely disgusted with "Retro Game" devices. They're not all that cheap, new "improved" ones aren't necessarily better (Sometimes they're worse: compare "Retro Game" and "Retro Game Plus"), and the quality of the parts is complete rubbish. I've had 2 "Retromini" RS-90 devices fail (one screen stopped working, the other randomly freezes) and one original Retrogame RS-97 mysteriously die. (Retromini is the only one of these junky things that actually runs opendingux.)

    Used N3DS/PSP isn't so much more expensive than this junk. (Especially when 3 or 4 new hardware revisions appear each year....) Less likely to fall apart and VC injection, CFW, emulators etc. is pretty easy compared to trying keep up with these constantly revised--but not necessarily improved-- underpowered Ingenic/Allwinner crap hardware stuffed into different cases to fool the next batch of suckers.

    And then there's the software: a confusing mess because the hardware keeps changing. Some "Retro Games" are will run some (static) OpenDingux Dingoo binaries, some will require porting and rebuilding. Too bad at least 3 different "Retro Games" look almost exactly the same. Maybe the next model will have a weird screen resolution and everything will have to be rebuilt. If you have more than one of these devices, plan to dedicate quite a few GB on your linux box to multiple buildroots.

    I'm about set to sell my whole RG-thisandthat collection on eBay and rm -rf all this crap.
