Retro Gaming On The Go

For $40 currently, you can get your own BitBoy Pocket Go and revisit Heretic or Quake II on a device small enough to toss in your bag for whenever the mood strikes you.  Powered by a 900MHz Allwinner F1C100S processor with 32MB of DDR2 it isn’t incredibly powerful, but then again it doesn’t need to be.  The IPS screen is 2.4″ with a 320×240 and is made of tempered glass so it should still be in one piece when you pull it out. 

The battery is replaceable and it supports microSD cards up to 128GB which will be more than enough to hold your retro game library along with the ones it ships with.  Take a look over at The Inquirer and see if you think it is worth the price.

At a pinch, the BittBoy comes ready to play Game Boy, Game Boy Advance, NES, PC Engine, Neo Geo, MAME for arcade, Wonderswan, SNES, Sega Mega Drive, Sega Master System, Atari 2600, Atari Lynx and DOSBox games. It also boasts PlayStation One compatibility, but more on that later.

    I want this for the hardware, and hope that someone comes up with better software. Kind of like the PlayStation Classic.
