Is XGP even out yet?
If it isn't, well, best wait if you really want one. Being an early adopter of a handheld that hasn't proved it's success is pretty risky. I'll refrain from using the dreaded "G" word.
Think about it like this, xgp is like psp with much much less commercial game support. And like the psp, the screen is wide so not really suited for emulation. And most ppl already prefer the gp2x over psp, and it seems like psp is better than xgp so...
As for xgp mini... who knows. Its "cute." Its more of a mini gp32 from what I hear but i dont know. Lets see if it comes out, if people make some nice programs for it, etc, etc.
*sigh* It's too bad all my friends must be such huge Nintendo fanboys. I've only gotten one of them to even consider the possibility of owning a GP2X.
Now the few friends I have that have used a PSP agree that the GP2X (with DaveC cap) is much more comfortable to use, although they have not commented on the games or the screen.
if you want to play commercial games and homebrew, go with a PSP... If you want to play purely Homebrew and Emus, go with a GP2x.
Anyone remember Gameparks Commercial support for the GP32??? They managed to release about 8 Crap games and 2 good games ...
