lol love everyone's comments about underpowered. I think the Pandora is a beast.

It just annoys me that people bag a product they have not seen in person or used before.

The best of the Pandora is yet to come and I look forward to it :)

But the fanboyism is not sterile, we can see the potential, because I'm sure I'm not the only one who has imagined himself using the Pandora incountable times, or we wouldn't even be here waiting! E.g. many times I had the thought "If I only had my pandora which would enable me to do this and that...". So the baggers have not done that either.

Awsome thread, how the hell did you find all those articles?
Thanks,
I just keep the first post updated, all the work is done by the people who post the links.


I can understand why people say underpowered, but it's not true for it's use.
Maybe the problem with smartphones etc, with 1ghz processors is bad use of the hardware? Just throw power at it. :rolleyes:

When you see the quakes running with a usable control method, show me all these competing devices with the higher specs. Show me what they can do.

WOW, I love GT for all there vid clips, but I don't think I have ever read any text media on that site before, and I go there all the time. Those guys leaving comments where truly mind boggling. I don't think the combined IQ's would even reach double digits, thats being to kind. :p

Based on all the comments, the PSP should have sold in the billions by now, it is truly the second coming! :huh:

I guess I should cancel my Pandora order ASAP, dust off my psp, buy a pandora battery, hack it, run the SNES emu, and then realize I just waisted a ton of time and money to run classic games in an half assed manner. Yeah that makes a lot of sense!

So its like a PSP but without any PSP games? Exciting...

Finally someone thinking straight. :D

FUUUUUU-
if the handheld is being
"marketed" as an emulator that can play classic games all the way up to
the PS1 era, i seriously doubt it'll even release in the states. just
the copyright infringement alone is gonna prevent the console from ever
seeing the light of day. the only place it'll release is china.


FUUUUUUUUUUUU-

The PSP wasn't built to play ROMs, while it seems that's all the Pandora can do. Huge difference.
FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-



Honestly, I think it sucks monkey ballz.

yeah, I'm not even going to bother trying to "educate" the GT forum. Sometimes the misinformation is just that: misinformation, and you simply correct it and everyone is happy.
Sometimes people are just idiots and nothing you can say will make them realize they're idiots.

I've just read through that GT forum and it left me feeling a little sick.
I can understand the why not just get a PSP retort though. My friend said exactly the same thing when he first heared about the Pandora, and it wasn't until I explained more about it and showed him some videos that he admitted they were completely different devices.
I still wouldn't waste my time trying to educate most of the people on that forum though. There's just no hope for some people :(

If your wondering why I've not added the GT to the OP, it's not because I'm censoring.
I just don't want to go prior to when the pre-production units hit the wild, otherwise it's just wild speculation.

Feel free to continue to post the links and discuss (rant) as much as you want though :lol:

Having read all those comments...I feel like stabbing myself in the eye now.
EDIT: Actually...I think I'm going to throw up.

There's no point in arguing with trolls - all they want is the attention. You could manage to cure all types of cancer and someone would complain that the med i cine* was a terrible colour.

Hey, the Pandora is a niche product. I bet there will be more people that doesn't care about it, doesn't get it, or just plain hate it, then people actually love it. And I'm happy about that. I relly hope that OP will sell lots of Pandoras but even if they are able to sell 100.000 there will still be millions that just don't get it, and they will be happier with a psp or ds.

It's easier to hate on things you're just too ignorant to understand. They choose to be ignorant, so I choose to ignore them.

It's just elitism isn't it. It's sad that some people (mostly children) are so ensnared by the big corporations that they see something like the pandora as something to be ridiculed. I wonder how much forum fawning over the psp there would have been if Sony were an emerging company releasing their first device. They like their drab oblong because it's nice and safe, and all their friends have one, and Sony says that you should like it.

I'm 31, I've owned a vic 20, spectrum 48k, spectrum 128+2, amiga 500, megadrive, snes, n64, Saturn, ps1, ps2, ps3, gamecube, gb colour, gba, gba micro, xbox 360 and many many pcs, ie: my opinion regarding gaming systems matters, and here is an important fact; I am not, and have never been interested in the psp in any of it's forms, I am however interested in the pandora.

The sad part is that they won't born that way. People and corporations did. Of course I'm pretty good at resisting depression, after all I'm still here.

Not elitism, it's retardism. Half the time at GT when I see comments on PSP games they're only comments about how good it'll be to pirate when it comes out. Then other times it's blind hated to something they havent even tried. It's like some how Gamefaqs spilled over into GT.

Kotaku tends to breed the same retardation but they hide it under an elitist blanket of only letting "certain" people post comments. I mena WTF it's not enough you gotta sign up but you have to AUDITION first to be a commenter? and then the people they let in get to spew all the hate and misinformation that they want?

Both sites can go to hell... actually they already have to be the way they are now.
