The price isn't terrible, but I'm not grasping to get this. I dont like the form factor, and there are still so many unknowns. They could charge $100 for each module for all we know.

Looks like a decent amount of salt on Twitter about this, specifically the shipping calculator portion of website not allowing people to submit orders in timely manner.

I’m still waiting for the super Nt restock. I knew this would sell out immediately. Good thing I had to work this morning so I wouldn’t waste my money with immediate regret since it won’t ship til probably this time next year

Let me know once the product ships and the reviews come in. It’s way too far off to drop that much cash with only hype and no reviews.

right? It might as well be an Indiegogo campaign at this point.

I don't buy the whole Covid excuse either. These dudes's whole business model is based on fake scarcity. Whatever, I'm just gonna IPS mod a GBP and call it a day.

Same. Just got on break and was hoping to pre order one but fuck it might as well just mod a GBA and GBPC and call it good. Would have been nice to have an all in one but handhelds but why did they have to go down this route again? Not like they wont sell either.

I'm sure cores to run those games aren't far off. I want to use this as a modern PC Engine GT though, so I scooped. Here's to hoping they ship before 2025.

You can load PCE roms already since the core is available. Other cores/roms you can load are NeoGeo/SNES/NES/Genesis and a few other arcade games.

Has anybody who preordered last December received theirs yet? I got a notification saying that they were preparing my order, but that was like a month ago. This fuckin' company, I swear...

Oh cool. I didn't know you could put console games on it.

Got mine and the dock in today. I’m not a huge handheld guy but the wife approves. Looks pretty great so far.

I got mine in a couple days ago but no dock, which I'm still waiting on. I'm not hot on the dpad and buttons, and it weighs a little more than I expected, but the screen looks beautiful and all the cores I've tried feel lag-free. I pulled off some fairly difficult combos with cancels in Garou just last night.

Hopefully screen filters are added to these cores.

Stupid Question: Is there any reason to own the Analogue MD or SNES of you have the Pocket and the dock, other than the ability to play physical carts? They're loading the same exact FPGA cores, right?

As more cores are released - the more obsolete this form-factor is becoming. Nice piece of kit but its outgrowing its pants.
