    Throw in Sonic Pocket Adventure and you may just have yourself a sale.

    This isn't actually a Neo Geo Pocket. This is a POCKET Neo Geo ;)

    It's a Dingoo thingy with a NEO GEO emulator preloaded on it. If you watch the title list, you'll notice that they're arcade titles.

    I wonder if it can also run up to Metal Slug 5...

    That makes it even more enticing. Mmm... Metal Slug 5 would be nice.

    i doubt it would be anything related to Dingoo, it's officially licensed.

    It might even be h4xx0rd to let other emulators on it.

    I'm pretty sure that it's a cheap MIPS architecture platform. Which could even support Dingux on it.

    I can't foresee them using ARM anyway. Maybe ARM11? Who knows.

    Bolded it fo ya. It's just something similiar.

    I remember how quickly i lost interest in the NGP when i had a play with it a year or two ago, which is really sad. I just don't think it holds up against other things (it's primary competition at the time i tried was the GBC and GBA). I'd suggest that if anyone with a PSP is tempted to try the emulator first and see how you like it.
