    Well, I canceled my order of the Archos now, due to several mixed opinions in reviews. Will see perhaps with further updates of the device, also the JXD 7300 is coming out soon, which will probably be the better console.

    I also still have my iPad with some games I didn't play yet, mainly Chaos Rings, which is a nice RPG.

    Archos devices always look quite good in stores, but I've also always been put off by average to poor reviews, especially regarding build quality. I think they can normally be rooted quite easily and newer or different OSs installed, so they are good for someone liking to mess around with some hardware.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Yeah, it's again a poor plastic built.

    Btw, the JXD already comes rooted.

    nVidia is also bringing out some device: http://kotaku.com/5973765/game-chang...project-shield

    Well, nVidia have already been making the CPU and GPU in the most powerful Android tablets anyway, so they are just utilising their own chips to make a gaming tablet by the looks of it. For Example my Nexus 7 has the nVidia Tegra 3 chipset containing a quad core CPU and 12 core GPU. Games directly supporting the Terga 3 chipset look really nice.

    Any news on this?

    I'm currently looking at the JXD s7300, which would be perfect, would combine the Archos and the JXD s5300, as it's a 7" tablet, has been released this week, and it costs around 140. Best online shop for this stuff is Willgoo, as shipping is also free.

    Go here for some info and pictures of the 7300: http://www.willgoo.com/jxd-s7300-dua...8gb-p-306.html

    I sold my JXD s5300 on eBay today for 105, I paid 65 for it.

    I then oredered the 7" JXD s7300, which got very good reviews, and seems to be quite good. They also have already a "Skelrom", basically some kind of jailbreak for it, v2 is already out. So I'm really looking forward to get this.

    I got my s7300 yesterday, and I'm positively surprised. Quality built is very good, and the console itself also looks neat. I put some emulators on it now, GBA, NES and SNES, and they work well, also look quite good on a 7" screen.

    I'm quite new to Android, so I still have to fiddle aeound a bit. Downloaded a set of 2012 games for Android, and also played a bit around with the console's interface, gonna let you know once CPU hungrier emulation is running.

    Finally got my white JXD7300 today, gonna try the newest firmware on it. So far, even with the first "root" firmware, everything is running smoothly. Today I wanted to try UAE4Droid, didn't test that one yet.
