    I have PSP 3000 on 6.20 PRO (permanent) and I never had any issues.

    Oh, well i guess when someone start selling portable Rasberry PI Then, i'll be happy. As long as it doesn't cost too much, and has easy to use "USER NOOB FRIENDLY" system like windows. ^_^

    OR start making stuff like this. :creep:

    While this isn't exactly portable, with the right setup it can be made that way. I recommend a Raspberry Pi, Model 3, with RetroPie installed on it. The Pi itself is rather cheap, all models being $35 flat, but the various other pieces of hardware needed to make it portable make it cost upwards of about $300-400. But it's worth it, as it can emulate SNES, NES, GBA, N64, PSX, PSP, and with a proper touch screen maybe even DS. Newer systems like PS2, Xbox, GC, PSVita and 3DS aren't possible on it, but that's mostly due to the requirements for the emulators as of now.

    Funny stuff. RetroPie does support Retro Achievements, which is something cool. Sadly, doesn't work 100% with any of the RetroArch emulators.

    Do you recomcend buying that nvidia controler? Or another one (xbox?) Going to buy Shield K1 and thinking about full nvidia accesory - gamepad, charger, cover, maybe stylus. But that controler seems huge, it is worth that money?
    Another tips/help for shield are welcome :) Thanks

    Don't buy the xbox controller, it won't work wirelessly, the only way it will work is to use a USB OTG cable to conntect it to the micro usb cable port, The shield controller was designed to support highest compatibility possible cause it includes a volume slider, microphone built into the controller, standard 3.5 MM headphone input, and mouse cursor control along with wifi direct for high speed connection and less button delay. You could use other blue tooth controllers as well which is okay but xbox won't work unless you plug it directly into the system. Which means if you plug the controller into the system, you can't use the charging cable.

    So with shield controller you can use wireless with all the support of not having to touch the tablet and still have it charge. Also useful if you plug the tablet into HDMI on tv output, you can charge and play at the same time and never need to go directly to the tablet, unless your gonna use it somewhere :)

    I'd recommend the 2004 Model, it has the Best screen imho. But either model is fine.

    My recommendations for you: JXD S7800B or Nvidia Shield portable. Both are absolutely amazing.

    I heard the JXD had some nasty issues with the firmware and reporting the screen to run at 55 Hz, causing some major screen tearing and the right thumb stick not working, among others. That and the customer support is really bad, personally one would be better off getting the Shield.

    I'd agree. I own the Jxd, and I have for about a year, but I haven't had any problems. I know others have so it could be risky. The Nvidia shield is probably the best option because you're guaranteed to get your moneys worth.

    Shield Portable is good too. I used to have one, but it's way too clunky for me.

    I forgot about that! Though I don't think the current portable is powerful enough for me. Once they have X1 Tegra processors, then I'll get one. Gotta have Dolphin!

    Nvidia shield tv has tegra x 1 :mellow:

    I tried dolphin on it already, is still bad. Sonic adventure 2 battle can't run at full speed but it looks great in HD. So i just stick to my PS3 Version :P
