Yeah i had a psp before,it had firmware 2.8 so i had to use Eloader to run all my homebrew (I was too chicken to flash a custom firmware).

The beuty with this is there are no propietry battery involved it's all just 2 AA's,Also it doesnt use a special memory card,it uses SD (Which is dirt cheap compared to the PSP Memory card) and also there seems to be alot more homebrew for this console than the PSP,Although the PSP has WiFi were as the GP2X Doesnt,Also the Batterys last loner on the GP2X thaN THE psp (5-6 Hours compared to 4 Hours) also the GP2X can be a Host for USB Devices,and it's a bit smaller too.

But i really like the fact that all the software for it is Open-Source.

I put no. I think the price is a little high for something that doesn't have advanced graphics. It's cool but I think I'd rather buy a PSP.

If you read the Review,One of the Commercial games has pretty good 3D Graphics,Also there are some Good 3D games for download for it,

But thanks for your opinion,i was also thinking about that,but i never used to 3d games on my PSP,I used it more like a Media Center handheld.

This is a cool device, I'd consider getting one but the price is a bit of a turnoff. I do think we need a new portable gaming device, it's not too interesting with only the DS and PSP.

I've always thought it would be interesting to see a wii handheld I can just imagine people interacting with a mini wii mote and a screen, loosing control of the wii mote and hitting someone with it, or walking down the street playing a fighting game and using it like a sword, imagine how many people they'd commit
