Easy enough to rectify that though by the sounds of it.

So. Does it just load roms from sd ?

It comes with 20 games pre-loaded and you can play additional roms loaded on the SD card. I don't have one myself but I understand there's no "save state" support and some of the sound emulation isn't the best.

A good deal for £25 though, love me some Shinobi, heat added.

Game Gear only played 8 bit game-gear or master system games and needed 6 AA batteries or a portable generator from what I remember?

Nice old games loved Alex kidd

Got this for less a couple of years ago, a bit of fun but the games quality is terrible and just leaves you wondering why you ever thought sonic was good.

On that video ive posted the roms look like net ones you download ie torrents etc so yes should load pirated from sd card.

If you've got a laptop, download the emulator KEGA and get one of these (link below - MegaDrive controller to USB device), and you can play nearly any SEGA game with the real controllers (2 player!) on your laptop/living room telly for about the same price (if not less) as the deal above.

I don't think you're quite the target market...

My son's broke within 2 months. Was good whilst it worked.

More like the Sega Nomad - en.wikipedia.org/wik…mad

(But running an emulator so quite a bit worse in terms of compatibility / performance.)

I want to play Pier Solar but I doubt it will work on this.

Or maybe Beggar Prince. I don't think either of them work on emulators though.

So what you're saying is, a laptop can fit in your pocket. Good for you. *golfclap*

2.8 inch LCD display - that's smaller than most mobile phones

He has a point, I have had one of these for about 2 years, the emulation isn't great, slowdown, music skipping / out of time, and some games don't even work. Though at this price they're worth a punt, unless you fancy paying a little more for a dingoo or a caanoo for a much better experience. IMO.
