    New handheld Retro Gaming console

    What do you all think of this?

    Not bad for what it does! No worrying about hacked firmware or devices like on the PSP and DS.

    Have to say I'm tempted by that. Considering I can play these games for free on the PC allready if I want to, it seems a little expensive just for the convenience of being handheld. But it's interesting. Thanks for the link.

    Demon Cleaner, I can do nothing but agree that Whiz looks nice. I think you get what you pay for, but according to THB over at EAB this cheapo little device isn't half bad for what it does.

    Could indeed be interesting. But how does it run the games? Is it preconfigured to run the ROMs of the said systems, or does it need emulators?

    According to Thinkgeek's product page, it doesn't need you to install any emulators. It plays the roms out of the box. Also it plays a bunch of audio and video formats, and has a radio and ebook reader software. All you need to provide is the media.
