    Good, because these things have really crappy emulation.

    At least with the stock firmware, yeah... It sucks. Custom firmware on these is a bit better.

    That's fair, but I wouldn't buy these cheap Chinese consoles even if hell froze over.

    I bought a GB Boy Colour from AliExpress, and it's pretty good.

    You've never heard of that figure of speech? Whatever, the products are still utter garbage, emulation is half-assed.

    Ahh... Well, I mean figure of speech or not, I know what you meant.

    As for software, I think the whole "Emulation is garbage" MAY be going a BIT too far. Now sure the HARDWARE is garbage, but could the emulation be THAT bad? As far as I know, even the WORST emulators on generic systems are still alright... Again, on GENERIC systems that do not require a whole bunch of backwards engineering... My point is we know they got cheap hardware. And most likely cheap software but could the CHEAP software really be THAT bad? XD

    No, it's a hardware clone, not an emulator.

    He is SELLING pirated software. That is a HUGE HUGE no no. I mean that's even bigger than the rom sites for the most part. Yeah.. Soulja Boy is going to be in -serious- trouble.

    I knoow! Because last time I was on a plane, as soon as I saw Soulja's face I was like "OMG MOMMY WE'RE GOING TO CRASH!" She didn't listen and now I was of two survivors.... Soulja Boy was the other.

    I am still not sure why this is big news. Some moron business type does moron move. Gets sued as a result. Amusing footnote maybe but hey.

    Still I went to the link, and then the article they source. Did not see any note of a case number, filing location or anything like that. Checked a bunch of other stories and no mention of anything like that. Don't have lexis nexis to do some kind of broader search with.

    It is entirely plausible (if it does contain ROMs and is confirmed as such) and the timeframe would also match (I presume they would obtain one of them to see, and if they are drop shipped from China...) but yeah I am waiting on us seeing legal paper first.
