I owned a Caanoo from the same company but I always liked the look of the GP2X Linux handheld. Wouldn't be worth getting one now

I also always wanted a Pandora but missed the boat on them and the successor device is more expensive and looks more geared towards linux enthusiasts as opposed to gaming.

Thank god for emulators today
70 pounds ! I don't think you have that right multiply that a few times and it makes sense ! snes games seemed where about 60 quid back then.

had to wait till early 2000's to get a ng

I never owned one but when i bought my snes i had placed m despoit on the super scope snes version but changed it to the sf2 version when i saw that was being released. My parents paid it off as i couldnt afford to pay the rest that was owed. so never bought a superscope then afterwards

Have a GP32 and a GP2X somewhere in a box still. They never quite lived up to the promise and the emulation - SNES in particular - was always about making sacrifices to get the games to be playable.

I remember around the same time I got the GP32 really wanting a Tapwave Zodiac but not being able to afford it.
