    OT - Linux-based handheld console launches in UK

    May 18th, 2006, 11:24 Posted By: wraggster

    Homebrew Fans already know this but it seems the mainstream have caught on at last, heres the newspost from Gamespot:



    GP32/2x Distribution Ltd has announced that the GP2X is now available in the UK. It is the successor to the GP32 handheld, which sold over 32,000 units. The console features a 240MHz processor, 64MB of RAM and 64MB of on-board NAND flash memory. It will retail for Ã ¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚£12 4.99 in the UK.

    The GP2X can run games, music and movies, read e-books and store photos. The distributors claim that the handheld offers "higher quality audio and video playback" than the Sony PSP and it can also be connected directly to a TV set.

    There are over 500 games available for the console--most as free downloads through the official website and developers are encouraged to work with the open-source system. There are also 10 commercial games in development.

    "We have been astonished by the kind messages and feedback from the early GP2X userbase. The speed at which games and software has been released is amazing. Now it is time that the UK public get to see what a powerful and flexible machine the GP2X is," explained Craig Rothwell, director of GP32/2x Distribution Ltd.

    As most who visit DCEmu s Network of sites know, i have actively supported and spammed about the GP2X since before it was released in Korea last year, for homebrew fans like me its great to have consoles that embrace homebrew than try to wreck it for us, remember to visit our very own GP2X Emulation News Site where we have all the very latest news and downloads for the GP2X, back to normal service now

    Oh people, know that you have committed great sins. If you had not committed great sins, God would not have sent a punishment like me upon you.

    Oh right. You must mean something like the "PainStation". A game where you inflict actual pain on the opposing player such as electric shocks, whipping, and burns. The game station is brought to you by Germany.
