you are quite right! you can get these mobile and pc, the main winner for this is its a purpose made gaming device, instead of relying on touchscreen or an external controller it has everything built in and for a device from china its really well made. the only downside is no Bluetooth (grrrr) :)
You can get these on your mobile/PC & DS with a simple software install.... but each to their own i guess.
when you say cheap do you mean to buy a copy of an old game? most popular retro games cost a small fortune just for the cart. in some cases more then this product alone... as far as i'm aware there are no emulators on the market that offer the portability and ease of use as this machine. something the size of a nintendo 3ds that can fit in your pocket and offers instant access to 1000s of games, no searching or going on dodgy websites, they are all in the app provided.
Don't see the point really... retro games are generally free now anyways or at least cheap so what are u paying for?... the console?... any device can run these.
not yet I'm afraid mate. I have about 60 games on the device now and the ones I have played for over an hour are- sonic adventure 2 dc resident evil cv dc resident evil 3 dc and smash bros for the n64 all have worked perfectly aside from some fmv jumping in some games... other then that it's mostly going to be used for nes , snes , megadrive and ps1 all have these have been faultless with the exception of worms on the gba which wouldn't start
