I don't get why all of these type of videos look over the nVidia Shield Portable, it is probably the best on-the-go emulator device out there. It has a big 720p screen, runs Android, has a battery so large it will put your phone to shame (literal days of retro-gaming capacity), sports a built in (really nice) controller, 16gb of internal memory, Micro-SD card expansion, it can connect to a bluetooth headset, has built in Wi-Fi and plays everything up to PS1 with minor to no issues (depending on emulator). I literally walk around with all the games for all the major systems prior to the 3D-era in my bag at the same time on this thing. I hoped for a successor though as it is somewhat old by now, but that will probably never happen.
But the switch doesn't have the Retro games and i already know that Nintendo isn't going to give us any games that we actually want like N64/GameCube games on there, and a computer isn't portable unless it's a laptop but you don't want to carry that around with you and you can't put it in your pocket, I just give nintendo a HUGE MIDDLE FINGER, I might buy a GPD XD+ just because i can hopefully play my favorite games on the go.
Atm, since the Switch doesn’t have any virtual console games...I rebought a New 3DSXL and called Nintendo and got my whole library transferred over from my old account. Now I have like 15+ games on my 3DS. Something that will hold me till Smash Ultimate. I’m rebuying Smash 3DS to get good at it again till December.
if its a game ive purchased but threw out because the console died and i couldnt get another one and fuck the ds im downloading it.
if its something im willing to buy and will buy but cant find a copy of then im downloading it till i find a legit copy.
if its something i cant get a legit copy of at all, then shit. sorry but make a new way to legally obtain it.
GPD XD is brilliant although I found the HDMI to TV very laggy, which made it practically unplayable. Also PSP games don't run the best. However, as a portable device it is the best out there for old retro games.
Ive tried everything that you mentioned and more, ive tried devices that let me rip the roms direct from their cartridge over usb, and all other manners of devices. The best thing ive ever had to date is a portable windows device. You mentioned the GPD XD which is good, but not near as good as its brother the GPD Win. You could also use a huawei windows 10 tablet, or an intel compute stick which is a computer that looks like an amazon fire stick. All of these options can easily run n64, and some can go as far as gamecube emulation. Portable windows is the best way to emulate, hands down.
I do a lot of different emulation stuff. I'm particularly found of raspberry pi3 handhelds since they were fun to build, but in terms of performance and variety you can't beat just running emulators on PC, and if you don't care about more modern consoles like ps3, and wii U but want a portable experience, then a high end android phone can emulate pretty much everything with RetroX, and a few other emulators like Dolphin.
My GPD XD is still one of my all time favorite gaming purchases. I picked one up nearly a year ago and still play it constantly. My favorite way to play is using FPV drone racing goggles as the monitor with an 8Bitdo SF30 as an external controller, although the GPD's on board control layout is very good. Best retro portable I've ever played. The only downside I've experienced is that if you hook it up to a modern 4K tv, the lag time is pretty bad, even if you lower the hdmi output settings. Aside from that, I've never played a better retro portable than the GPD XD, it's really that awesome.
@10:25 Quickcharge capable chargers only output 9V (or even 12V) after successful negotiation with the device. Otherwise the output is limited to 5V and you never have to worry to connect any 5V USB device to it.
These guys are putting out user friendly, perfect emulators, for android... all Play Store, all trusted site legit, no worries :-) Just awesome emulation!! PERFECT NES EMULATION: Http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=emulator.arcadegameclassic.mamedroid
PERFECT SNES EMULATION: http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=emulator.arcadegameclassic.snes
D.S. Lite, is the best handheld console ever made. Even without emulators, it has the largest library of any system (handheld or not) ever... Then factoring in emulators, the D.S. plays THOUSANDS of titles...
E.g. Christian Whitehead, "Sega Forever"... on android... 'nuff said... Hell, I throw the side mounted, bluetooth controllers on my badass Asus Zenpad (1.83ghz Mediatek Hexacore w/ 2gb ram and dual stereo speakers... it's amazing, does everything, perfectly) and call it my Sega Switch! Got Master System, Megadrive, Genesis, Saturn, and Dreamcast games. And Thanx to CHRISTIAN WHITEHEAD and the SEGA FOREVER initiative, they all run PERFECTLY, control PERFECTLY and LOOK BETTER than they EVER did on ANY gen of television, thanx to my Zenpad zt581k's 2048 by 1536 hd display ;-) (seriously though, their one of the baddest Tabs on the market and you can get them, new, on ebay, for around $90. Not trying to sell anything... but the hexacore and supa hi res. screens are AWESOME for vintage gaming. And they're cheap, just trying to turn ya'll on to the good sh*t, while the gettin' is good) So, yeah, Android is about to take over the vintage gaming world... Mark my words... Have an excellent night ya'll! GAME ON :-) I'll post some links for Easy to get, easy to use, user friendly and stunning android emulators, in a few minutes... Latr...
Android emulators, with bluetooth controllers, are the future... And is, by far, the easiest way to retro game... The OLDER ones ARE a pain in the ass, but the newest ones you just download the emulator, open it, type in the game you want on the emme's search bar, and when the game you want pops up, tap on your game aaaand enjoy!... thats it...
How is Ron's and emulators is in any way different from buying used games from game stop and second parties, third parties and out of the way stores? Nintendo still won't get a cut from the sale. To take a lawsuit against Rom sites then they definitely have to take a law suit against game stop and Craigslist and small shops
I use RetroPie on Raspberry Pi 3 with a CRT monitor, fightstick and Buffalo snes gamepads. It's quite weak and struggles on N64 and some many games for Arcade does not work, plus there is a lot of work involved. But besides this, it works quite good. The only drawback is, it is not portable.
But people managed to create their own portable devices with the Raspberry Pi or even arcade machines.
aside from a laptop my best and only 2nd of 2 portable emulation devices i've owned was the experia Play. i had +9800 games including complete north American libraries for, nes, snes, n64, game boy, GBC, GBA, sega masters, genesis, game gear, TG16 as well as +3500 mame games. while i always look for new portable emulation devices none have everything i want, infact none really have had a simple 6 key layout, A B C, X Y Z, i want an emulation device that can comfortably play N64.
If you own the SupaBoy S, you should consider getting a Super EverDrive game cart. It's a super nintendo cartridge with a slot for a micro SD card so you can load your snes roms on it. It also has the ability for you to input game genie codes as well.
I highly doubt that the GPD can only be charged on regular 5V chargers as all fast chargers will first "ask" the device if it supports fast charge, and if it doesn't respond they will just charge it at the regular 5V.
Retropie on an Ubuntu Linux OS Desk is better , and looks cooler than OpenEmu ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ma8_FzDt_DI
Plus Attract Mode on Portable Emulation Station is amazing ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3XK84MG2Bg&feature=youtu.be
Just a reminder, nintendo said "There are currently no plans to bring classic games together under the Virtual Console banner as has been done on other Nintendo systems". This means that they might bring retro games to the switch, just not with the 'virtual console' branding. There is still hope!
You mentioned my gaming flagships, but not enough. I will only play SNES and below on my hacked PSP. Nothing can compare to that sweet Sony d-pad. For PS1 gen consoles and android games it's the GPD XD. It plays San Andreas flawlessly.
Even though I'm already having one PSP and playing retro games in it I still put my money on a GPD XD and no regrets at all. Until now it's the best handhelds way to play retro games, of course, if you have a computer to do it will be even better because you can emulate more consoles on it. GPD XD can emulate everything until Dreamcast and New Android Games, you can use basically any Android app on it which is the perks to have one. Probably the Holy Graal of emulation.
