:P pretty hard to justify over a GBASP or GB Micro though eh.. TV Out is pretty interesting, but pretty lame lookin game. Its almost like battle out run for the Master System :) ... kinda makes me miss that game actually

Do you know anything about CPU and other things?
It looks like another experiment at handheld gaming system, probably it will be good system for starting developers but it won't be as gba is.

if its cheap and gets a good homebrew scene then you never know how big it can be

HEHEHE, It looks like a fat gba, and no doubt someones gonna make a gba emulator for it. Asia seems to be lacking some artistic vision lately.

Hehe, I got this thing here in Germany last week :D
You won't see homebrew on this thing, as the USB-port is just for TV. The 30 games are everything you will get.
But some games are quite funny for 30. And it has got a really cool screen. Even on TV it looks cool.

erm...i don't think that this is a homebrew console as such, if you look on the official website it looks like the games are made by takaratomy= takara + tomy. So it may just have those built in games and NO expandable memory. TV is a cool idea though, but isn't the whole point of a 'portable' games system to use it while you're not at home? lol..

Seriously! Just look at the cheap GBAMP! I can't believe its still as hot as ever even though for just a little more you can get much better gear (M3, SC, etc)

BTW, do you know if this new gadget has sd/cf slot or internal flash?

sleepwalker said theres only a usb port but it depends what kind of processors there are but i doubt there will be a good one for 30.
