The GP2X handheld gaming emulator gets a little more mainstream this week as a product now available from ThinkGeek.com.
If you’ve not heard of the GP2X, it’s basically about the size of a Gameboy Micro, features 1GB of storage expandable via SD cards, and is open-source. You load emulation software onto it followed by ROM after ROM of old-timey games.
You can do a bunch of other stuff with the GP2X, too — music, movies, etc. — but the big draw is the amount of emulators available: Arcade, GameBoy Advance, Genesis, NeoGeo, NES, TurboGrafx, PlayStation, Sega Master System/Game Gear, Vectrex, DOS, and more. There’s a pretty active community for the device as well.
Retails for $180 plus shipping.
