The GP2X - The New Pretender to the Homebrew and Emulation Crown

The GP32 also know as the Gamepark 32 was and is an emulation fans dream console, the list of emulators and homebrew is outstanding, well moving on a few months ago i was told of the successor to the GP32 called the GP2X and this console has these features (Thanks to GP2X UK)

To sum up the GP2X:

It can play games. It can play your Movies. It can play your music. It can view photos. It can read Ebooks. It runs on just 2 AA batteries - And it can do all this in the palm of your hand or on your TV screen.

Yes that's right, this handheld can connect to the TV, console style. Watch your DivX movies on the TV. Play emulated classics on the TV. Try big screen Quake. Or just play them all on the GP2X's large 320*240 backlit screen. You get the best of both worlds.

It runs the free Linux operating system. This means a whole world of Games, Utilities and Emulators are at your disposal. Quake, Doom, SNES, Megadrive, MAME, Media players and Applications to name just a few.

It's powerful - Two 200mhz CPU's with 64meg of RAM, custom graphics hardware and decoding chips. Takes SD cards and has 64M of NAND memory. Plenty to play with. One of the most powerful and advanced handhelds today.

That means it can play movies without any re-encoding. Just put them onto an SD card. Any size. Any resolution. No messing about. The GP2X scaling chip will resize to fit the screen. No other handheld can do that.

The GP2X has been available in for a week now and what a week, we have seen ports of Quake, Quake2, Hexen and also Snes, NeoGeoCD, Commodore 64 and even an Atari 800 emulator and thats just whats been released :)

The GP2X scene is seeing movement on a daily basis and while there may still be some bugs to iron out the console is gathering momentum.

The sites to watch out for are GP32Xtreme, GP32 Spain, Emuholic, GP2X News and the GP2X File Archive .

The GP2X can only be brought from smaller but more dependable shops at the moment and they are GP2X Shop, GP32Z and also GP2X UK.

Will this new console have an impact on the Emulation Scene, ill say a hell yes :) (and no pesky firmware updates to kill homebrew like the PSP)
