I heard people saying in a post about 2 hours ago saying that Gizmodo is over priced. When infact the gp32 blu is overpriced. The gizmodo is a power house. Its worth its price. The gp32 is a classic tool for emulation. Thats it no more capabilities. I think That people have taken gp32 to the limit. Last thing i heard was people trying to run linux on it as if it were a f----ing laptop. Kind of gets me pissed off

I think that things in this universe are made for a purpose. And i think that the purpose of the gp32 is to play classic 15 year old games that no one really cares about anymore. And yes no one really cares, Only a few people that prefer shit over the great stuff that there is now. I think that the blu is over priced. For something that is totaly third party based it shouldnt cost so much f----ing money. I dont know about you guys but 179 us dollers is alot to me for something that has no capabilities unless you got a working pc with internet.

The coolest thing i've seen in gp32 is the black one. I wish that one came out just because It looks cool. I think that if the gp32 had touch screen and atleast a palm os it would be very good. But since it lack's from all those things I think its highly over priced. I can buy a ppc refurbished for 130. 300 mhz and 64 megs of ram. And I can upgrade storage to a gig unlike the peony limitations of the gp32.

Im sorry I know that when you guys read this your gonna try to defend the gp32 and thats ignorance. I think its a cool emu machine, that's it nothing more then that. And i wouldnt be writing this if you guys wouldnt be saying that the Gizmodo is over priced because I honestly think you guys are mistaking about that. Whell flame away, I dont realy care. Deep down you know im right.
 
OMG!!!!!1111111 j00 15 D4 ub3r-1337!!!!!!!!111111111

Heres what I call ignorance. A guy that signs up to a forum because someone said the product was overpriced. I could buy an Asus 620 for much less. Atleast it has good capabilities and a good price. I think Alienware computers are overpriced, doesn't mean they are bad.

Second, if you don't like classic games then what the hell are you buying a GIZMONDO for? I mean seriously that has to be the dumbest thing ever. It will never succeed in commercial whether you believe it or not. You have an excellent line up of about 7 games that are crap with 3 developers lol. Not even 7 lol.

Third, I could buy a much better pc then what I would pay for a useless Gizmondo that is worse then the Asus 620.

Fourth, PLEASE dont tell me you are making fun of the looks of the Gp32. Your console looks like this:

Enough said about the looks because that has to be the stupidest looking thing ever.

Fifth, no one is gonna buy the Gizmondo. The N-gage atleast looks cool. Whats your reason to buy the Gizmondo?

Its just an overpriced Asus 620 which will never get a community. Have fun with your useless Gizmondo. Are you mad you get no Linux on your handheld that sucks?!

Lol no I don't think your right. I think your stupid for wasting your money on a useless product. Since you are so stupid why should I listen to what you say?
 
Sigh...I'll give this a day or two before I close it for flames.

The gizmodo is a power house. Its worth its price.

Yet throughout the post you never once defined how gizmondo is better then the GP32. You simply made irrelevant comparisons of the GP32 to OTHER handheld devices.

The gp32 is a classic tool for emulation. Thats it no more capabilities.

The GP32 wasn't created with emulators in mind, nor were there any emulators available at launch. It just HAPPENED that, because of Gamepark's open source policies and general openess towards the GP32 dev community, emulators arose. Not to mention the GP32 uses an ARM9 processor, so a lot of devs either looking to sign up for the GBA or already a GBA coding master hopped on the GP32 bandwagon.

GP32 can play multiple music formats (MP3, OGG, MOD, IT, S3M, XM, MIDI), Display Text in an easily readable format, and Play DivX Movies. In fact, I have lately been using it for it's Text viewing capabilities, going through Grimm's Fairy Tales and Aesop's Fables (both of which are public domain, of course).

I think That people have taken gp32 to the limit. Last thing i heard was people trying to run linux on it as if it were a f----ing laptop. Kind of gets me pissed off

Are you a developer? I don't think you really have the right to say the GP32 has been taken to "the limit". In fact, there are modifications you can do to your GP32 to increase it's RAM memory, effectively increasing it's "limit". GPLinux is a reality, we can get it working, it'll just take time. Can the Gizmondo already run Linux? I ask out of curiousity, not boasting, since you haven't compared the GP32 vs Gizmondo at all yet as far as I can tell.

I can buy a ppc refurbished for 130. 300 mhz and 64 megs of ram. And I can upgrade storage to a gig unlike the peony limitations of the gp32.

Once again, you fail to compare the PPC to the GP32. You really need to elaborate to make a convincing argument.

Im sorry I know that when you guys read this your gonna try to defend the gp32 and thats ignorance.

No, that's your opinion. We should be allowed to form our own opinions. Furthermore, you have given us no reason to follow your opinion, as you have given no evidence to back it up! How can you call us ignorant, when you, yourself, present an argument without any evidence? Are you ignorant of the evidence (mind that I am not calling you ignorant, just unaware of the evidence) or simply forgot to share it?

By reading this through, I can only guess you got angry at our statement about the Gizmondo, and then proceeded to attack the GP32 directly without regard to the Gizmondo at all. That is uncalled for, and cannot be the basis for any argument. These are OUR forums, and we should be able to form our OWN opinions. Did you once see us say, "We think the Gizmondo is overpriced compared to the GP32!" No, the only post was even close to that was my reply, and even then I was giving my personal opinion - not a generalized statement.

If you wish to enter into an argument of the Gizmondo's capabilities vs the GP32, you are welcome to do so. As it is, your only action so far has been an unprovoked attack in our own dwelling. This is our community, where we are allowed opinions SEPERATE from the GP32 (notice the board is called OTHER consoles, meaning OTHER THEN THE GP32), and we should be allowed to bash other handhelds without people thinking we are comparing them to the GP32 directly. Did you even know that a good number of our members don't even OWN a GP32? If you found a Gamefaqs board bashing Gizmondo, and let's say it was the General: Handhelds board, would you bash all handhelds except the Gizmondo?

If your only intent is flaming, please stop or else face punishment. Thank you.
 
well said, both of you. the gizmondo is overpriced. overhyped (by the two people who like it) and could never succeed past the even the GP32. its even more of a niche machine than the ngage, and i would rather buy one of those than a gizmondo.

btw, who thought of the name gizmondo?! wha the hell were they on? and GPS? what the fuck is that for? throw it away...

...............................

Gizmondo is overpriced, they threw in a bunch of crap so they can sell the product for even more... Just because it has all these features doesnt mean 400 dollars isnt overpriced.

Yeah there are great stuff these days, but games back then were great also, dont define a game by graphics define them by gameplay. mario, metroid, sonic, tetris attack and much more are still fun games playing today.

Gizmondo will never be great stuff accept it.

I will probably get a gizmondo off ebay when price lowers just cause i like handhelds though.. :ph34r:

You sounded very sophisticated general, you made him sound like a dumbass, i guess words is power. Im scared now :unsure:

I don't think it looks too bad. A bit small, but they might just be large hands. According to the hardware specs, the screen is the same resolution as that of the GP32. Much more powerful CPU. So it comes down to how open it is to develop for, battery life and price. Openness being the main one for me.

But as for the original poster:

Bar personal reasons, the only people I can think of that could rationally get actually pissed off by other people doing what they want with a device would be those working for competitors that wish the developers' time was being directed towards their own product. It seems unlikely that you work for a competitor, which only leaves your being irrational as explanation. I've borne that in mind while reading the rest of your post.

If you don't agree with that conclusion, you can avoid having people jump to it in future by being a little more sensible in your voiced opinions on the uses of other people's time.

You're not related to a Mr. Freud, are you? "You don't believe my theories? Ah, you must just really want to sleep with your mother, then."

I'm so glad this idiot doesn't represent the great people on PocketMatrix. I was gonna buy a Pocket Pc before a Gp32 so I asked their opinion. They gave me an honest and unbiased answer. Too bad we have already seen what type of idiots this machine can produce.
 
...Why are you even reading a gp32 forum?
Apparently you don't care about it so run back to your gizmondo forum...

P.S. can't wait to hear you guys yelling out codes... circle, wavy equals (or waves or whatever your going to call it), up, dotdotdotdotdotdotdotdotdot(or nine balls...right across your chin), jail bars, down, left, down, down. (who even knows what the top buttons are called, maybe pyramid and asterix...) I admit the CPU is nice but who wants adware on a handheld and is it going to be open source? nevertheless being tracable wherever you are.

By the way is that just jaycee900 logged in as someone else and freaking out cause nobody cared about his website? Post in the right forums and you'll get the right attention. If your somebody new, sorry jaycee900 but I just jumped to conclusions cause it seemed awfully close together.

Nothings wrong with a Pocket PC or a Palm as long as its not the Gizmondo :).

I know how we canget rid of those prices!

Simple!

Press Alt + F4, it works everytime!

you can even get 90% off of your gp32 by deleting your
windows.ini file!

But seriously, we still have many things we can do to the GP32 to make it better.
Why the hell are you mad that we made the GP32 into a lpatop?
you should be happy, because linux for gp32 has so many great features.

No there isn't, just don't try gaming on it. Two machines with different purposes should never be compared. If you buy a Pocket PC or Palm for this purpose you have some dead weight on your body.

So basically what he is saying is he is allowed to form opinions and voice them (badly at that), but anyone else who forms a differant opinion is ignorant. sayquestionaskanswer anyone?
 
The blokes handheld is so impressive he can't even spell it. Gizmodo!!!

What a total idiot. Hehe.

Mind you it does sound better than Gizmondo... but only slightly.

In this instance Gitmoano would be a better name.

--------------------------

Must check how the pocket PC Amoga emulator is coming on.

I wonder when Open Sneeze 0.5 is coming out.

Gizmodo LOL
 
Damn, I never realised how rubbish my GP32 was until I read this thread!

I thank you, LinkiNparkFov, for showing us blind fools the way forward. I now realise that playing PC Engine, Megadrive, Atari ST, MSX, NES and SMS games on two AA batteries is just a stupid waste of my precious time. After all, why bother playing on emulators when I could be having hours of fun using the super-useful built-in GPS functions of the Gizmondo? I can finally pinpoint my exact whereabouts without the need of a 1000 yard ball of twine! And once I've arrived at my location I can encircle the perimiter of the building to prevent any theives from stealing my precious Gizmondo, otherwise they face the humilation of my custom 'You have stolen my Gizmondo' screen. Boy, I can't wait to hand over my £229 for all these great features that will put my pony GP32 (now set on fire, smashed in to teeny pieces with hammer and binned for ever trying to run Linux...DAMN that makes me angry!) to shame.
