I dont need it either, cause I have a psp 3000, and ChickHEN R3 is coming out soon, soo...yeah. (No insults here, but it looks cool.)


What the hell is a chickenhen r3?
:?

ChickHEN is a method of loading custom firmware on a PSP to play emulators, etc.


You can run homebrew on a PSP-3000? News to me!

Atari Rocks!- I found your post while looking online to fix the exact player that you bought(mp4 mp5 game player). I apologize for an off topic post in on atariage forums. My problem is that the player won't charge either with the included cable or with usb. Also, Does the red light indicate charging?

Yes the red light indicates charging. Maybe your charger is bad? Try swapping for another USB cable and see if that charges it?

I wouldn't be surprised if it has a lot of common DNA with the Dingoo A320, based on what you said. It looks like a A320 in a PSP's body. Mind you, the A330 is just like that, but white.

Most likely some Chinese factory was making official Sony PSP molds, and then did a private run of their own(with no UMD, etc) to make these. It sounds like a better deal than the PSP ever was!

70? That's $30 less than the A320. Not bad!

Emulation? I'm all over that. Some of these Chinese unofficial limited-run knockoffs are in some ways better than the usual commercial game console(portable or not) offerings.

I found mine on ebay for about $40 with shipping so I'd consider that a good deal. I was looking at buying a used psp 2000, but they are still around $100 for the working, and at least $30 for a barely functioning psp. I was wondering what devices play 64 bit games. I heard emulation for nintendo 64 games is mediocre at best on the psp but that may have changed now. The problem with off brand game devices is that I cannot find a dedicated forum for them. Especially true with the device Atari Rocks shows; no brand displayed anywhere, I've even taken it apart to no avail.

I personally own a GP2X Wiz, so I would only get this to sell it to GameStop and pretend it's a real PSP. They probably wouldn't tell the difference anyway :lol: .

You have got a good price on that. Deal Extreme has them for more.

I am looking at trying this one next, because it's got a 5" screen, crappy camera I'll never use, and 8GB:

There's a few versions of Gameking, but they're crap. The screen is black and white, very low resolution, games suck, etc. The Game King I was black and white, the Game King II had fake color on it (a background scene) but the games were still black. The newer version Gameking III doesn't look like a PSP and actually has a color screen.

No clue what Zigbee is. I really just want that one 'cause it's got a 5" screen.

There's another similar system with a smaller screen that plays some other game system I never heard of.

Deal Extreme has a lot of neat things like that.. just search for video games or handheld video game. I do a search every month or so when I remember to see what's new. I've bought from them twice so far with no problems going into United States.

I have a cell phone jamming device... that sucker works great. Was under $30 bucks too! It doesn't have a long distance, but that's okay I don't want to get in trouble anyway. Just wanted to be a dick and play a joke on my Girlfriend's Daughter. Our apartment has no cell service LOL.

I also bought a Bluetooth adapter to send games and ringtones from my computer to cell phone. Under $4 bucks included shipping! Awesome price. In stores the cheapest I found was $29 or $39 (I forget) from Staples.

http://www.dhgate.co...702bae273c.html

Supposedly 2000 games built in.. $27 + shipping to the United States.

Deal Extreme only has the Game Station Lite.. not this one. This one supposedly has a better battery, more games, and NTSC tv out.

That pretty much looks like my Dingoo A330. Maybe the screen is wider (on yours)?

I was gonna use the A330 for low power emulation goodness as it has a wireless joystick and TV out.

Turns out the framerates on native emulators is choppy and some emus don't even work compared to the A320.

If someone was willing to do this, I would buy one for that price (Ax, where are you? ;)).

Better battery is a plus, but, it's just a Hong Kong pirate NES with proprietary carts.. meaning you can't add new games besides hunting down GB Station specific carts.

My Power Player doesn't have a screen, but it runs off of normal batteries and can take Famicom games.

I bought one of these also off of eBay about a year ago and for $42 I'm satisfied with it. The NES, GB and GBC are emulated the best. GBA emulation is hit or miss but a lot of GBA roms run good. The Genesis emulator is not bad but there is some lag in animation and the audio is off. It also only plays the .SMD roms for the Genesis emulator and not the .BIN's. The SNES emulator is horrible with the audio being good but the animation suffering badly. As far as videos and music goes it does really good. The actual hardware seems cheap IMO with the L shoulder button on my unit barely works and the directional joystick is junk.

What emulators work best with this and what way is best to install them in the system. Just store everything on the memory card and run from that I assume
