Most of the handheld emulators I’ve come across recently only ever support NES ROMs. And while there’s nothing wrong with the NES, it definitely had some classic titles, I’m left wanting more. And the ‘Multi Platform Portable Gaming Entertainment Station’ from Chinavasion is exactly the ‘more’ I’m looking for. In addition to NES ROMs, the MPPGES can load SNES, Sega Genesis, GBA, Neo-Geo and even CAPCOM game ROMs, as well as popular multimedia formats like WMVs, AVIs, MPEGs and of course, MP3s.
The 320×240 2.8 inch LCD screen is more than adequate for my portable needs, and the healthy 4GB of built-in memory can be further expanded via a miniSD card. It’s even got an AV-out hookup that supports both NTSC or PAL in 16:9 or 4:3. All that for a ridiculously low price tag of about $86.
