    I want to buy a PSP or Dingoo and i wanted to ask your opinion of which you think is better.

    Here is my criteria of what i am looking for. I like old school games, preferrably games for NES, SNES or SEGA Genesis.

    I own a GBA SP and Nintendo DS Lite. I tried to play Sega Genesis (JenesisDS) on my DS Lite and i didn't think the quality was great, there was a lot of choppy images and it wasn't worth playing. My favorite games on JenesisDS were emulated horribly.

    With NES games, i used NESDS emulator on the nintendo ds and i thought it was ok on some games, but i like Pocketnes emulator much better, but the games that i really wanted to play, were a little choppy.


    For NES, Mike Tyson punchout, tecmo bowl 1 and StarTropics were some of my favorite games of all time and i could find a handheld device that plays those games perfectly, i would be very happy.

    For Sega Genesis, RBI Baseball 1 and Tecmo Bowl 1 are my favorite all time games, and i would be happy to know which handheld system plays these games perfectly.


    thanks for your input.

    A PSP will be a better value in the long run. I can't comment on the Genesis and NES emulation, though I imagine they would be fine. SNES and GBA emulation are top notch too.

    PSP all the way. You can emulate those 2 platforms perfectly + a lot of other platforms + PSP games themselves!

    Get a PSP if you plan on hacking it. It becomes the best portable emulator aside from the Open Pandora on the market.

    Get a go. Ultra portable, 16GB storage and another 16GB with a cheap M2 (sandisk) card added. Super clear and bright screen. The controls are pretty good and I have big hands. Runs emulators and movies superbly.

    How is it you are able to put old school emulation on the psp go since its a new model?

    I was told that you could only emulate games with psp 1000 and 2000 and not psp 3000, because anything over 6 something software version will not work.

    @OP That's old news that you have there. There are hacks all the way up through 6.39 firmware now for every model of PSP available.

    They're wrong. Every PSP is hackable.

    tanveer, i looked at the link you provided, only one of the psp 3000's models has a partial hack, the rest of psp models says FULL Hack.

    How do i know which motherboard i have, how do i check that? I have a psp 3000 that i wasn't using because i was told it wasn't hackable.

    Anything up to 6.39 is hackable as of now.

    Check the system info for what firmware you are on. Just follow Rydians instructions/guide.
    Very easy and "noob-friendly" [​IMG].

    use the module checker to see what module you have
    07g and 09g are partial hack, the rest can downgraded to 6.20 and use the permanent hack

    I know Little to nothing about the PSP hack BUT, I have had severfal Dingoos. They are very fragile to begine with, easy to break. Most emulators are so so at best. Don't believe all thier advertising. I have had 'The Wiz' also, it uses the same software (when working at best uses Dingux software) as the Dingoo... but based on your present handhelds and the budget I assume you are one, Definately the PSP.

    i bought a wiz brand new, and i was shocked it didn't come with a charger. As soon as i turned it on, it would turn off like 10 seconds later. How could i play if there is no charger? the company that sold it to me, didn't have a charger either to sell. So i threw it away.

    put it in your "game" folder of your psp
    turn on your PSP and start the module checker, it will tell you what motherboard you have.
