    I have posted those handhelds before

    For classic games on the go theres only one option (exculdin the PSP due to messin round with firmware and expensive memorey cards and also because its big)
    Thats the GP2X

    I might get an iPhone someday, but first Apple needs to open it up for 3rd-party software. The included iPhone software is far too-limited in what codecs it will play for audio/video and there are some annoying missing features. Once other people are able to step-in and fill in the holes, it will have potential.

    The other thing is, AT&T doesn't offer plans to people living in VT since they don't have any towers here:

    GP2X looks sweet! I might just have to get one of those. How is its performance on...

    NES, SNES, SMS, Genesis, TG16, Gameboy, Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advance, Neo-Geo etc.?

    I wish they had a black version.

    PSP homebrew performance was really slow last time I tried 3 or 4 years ago.

    I think Nintendo should either make a new DS that allows you to play VC games that you purchase from the Nintendo network or a VC handheld. I think you should be able to port the games between Wii and the handheld though. There should not be 2 seperate stores etc. It would be nice if you are gonna be legal and pay for these VC games if you could still use them 10 years from now on Gameboy75 or Wii4.

    Ill PM you with details as the site contatins things that are frowned upon here (mostly chiping consoles and EMU but it has a VERY heavy homebrew userbase)

    But I did have one (untill it got bricked when I botvched up the firmware upgrade) and the Emu was console perfect (Snes wasnt but when I had it it was early days)
    Any body else that wants info PM me
