    Let me ask a few emulation speific questions about that device.

    What is the storage source? SD? Micro SD? Something built in?

    Does it support:

    NES and Famciom with expansion audio?
    Famicom Disk System?
    Master System with FM Synthesis?
    GameBoy/GameBoy Color?
    Genesis?
    Sega CD?
    NeoGeo Pocket Color?
    GameBoy Advance?

    also, do the various emulators support .png screenshot capabilities?
    I will say this one last time PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE watch the playlist I linked to of demonstration videos. Famicom Disk System has a demonstration dedicated to it. I provided links and info that it seems people keep ignoring. HERE IT IS AGAIN:
    http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...2MemZkgn_eSd3e

    I do not personally have a unit so I cannot give you exact specifics. I do not know anything more than the info found on the kickstarter page and what I have seen in the playlist of videos which is why I linked to them in my original post. From the beginning, more than once I have asked people watch the playlist of videos to show the quality of emulation. You may find some of your answers in them, some for sure but as for specifics like if the Master System has FM Synthesis I could not tell you as I cannot test myself. I recall seeing among several demonstrations, gamboy / Gameboy color / TG-16 & TurboCD / Snes / Famicom Disk System / The NeoGeo / Genesis / Mame / Atari7800 / Genesis / Amiga / Ported PC FPS.....


    What storage does it use....that info as well as the devices full specifications, current features and a list of some just some of the current developers and more are all available on, THE KICKSTARTER page, again the one I linked to in my first post. So excuse me if I say this one last time, to be clear you are free to not be into it or support it etc. FROM THE BEGINNING I have asked only you give it a fair shake MEANING go to the kickstarter page and read all the info there, watch the playlist of videos to see for yourself just some of the emulators and ore importantly the quality of their performance. THEN TELL ME one of these brand new is not worth $135 and I will totally understand and accept your decision (even if I do not agree with it) Thanks. Now for your convenience those links ONCE MORE:

    Kickstarter page with all kinds of wacky stuff like specifications / goals / The Team / Developers (important as they have done some kick ass stuff previously) / Specification (Like storage medium, features etc) OH and you can even ASK QUESTIONS and get answers direct form the Developers!:
    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...aming-handheld

    Playlist of demonstration videos showing several of the emulators and their performance:
    http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...2MemZkgn_eSd3e

    I have tried to answer all questions from the beginning but do tire repeating myself or answering questions where all the info (and much more) can be provided from the links I supplied. Thanks.

    P.S. @ Satoshi :
    Internal storage: 8 GB, most of which is available for applications and data / External storage: micro SDHC up to 32 GB or micro SDXC of 64 GB (SDXC cards must be reformatted before use) NOW PLEASE GO READ THE REST FOR YOURSELF....

    Yeah this is really looking great. I hope it does catch on and so then as time goes on theyll release new versions and have great technical support.

    Seriously, everyone. The videos real do prove the quality of the emulation of this device as well as can possibly be done without seeing an actual unit. The gameplay looks incredibly smooth and faithful to the originals.

    I have done lots of PSP emulation gaming in the past, and was certainly also disappointed by SNES performance. That was years ago, though, so maybe it's better now.

    The d-pad on this Kickstarter device looks amazing, too. Just what I want for classic NES and SNES emulation.

    Lot's of people are mentioning PSP, but it's been my experience with the PSP that when the screen scrolls, it can look pretty crappy. Since tons of retro games have those kind of scrolling screens, I just think that the PSP doesn't have the ideal kind of screen for emulation. Plus, widescreen screens aren't where retro games should be played. I'm a 4:3 purist when it comes to playing games pre Dreamcast. There is SO much amazing stuff out there pre-Dreamcast, so why not own a really good portable emulation device with a nice 4:3 screen.

    The thing is, I'd really need to see one of these in person to be convinced. I'd need to feel the D-Pad and see how the screen looks.

    I have never seen an adult pull any handheld game device out of their pocket. Kids yes. Most people wouldn't keep somthing they paid $200+ for in their pocket. I don't even know why people think that portable or handheld automatically means pocket.

    You're kidding, right? Many adults and kids walk around everyday with $200+ smartphones in their pockets. I know I do.

    My wallet and phone say hi.
    I suppose adults are supposed to carry around little bags and fanny packs for their gizmos?

    Not sure if its been posted here but they announced a spec bump from 256 to 512 ram and internal storage from 8 to 16 gigs.

    Honestly I'm not sure if they will make their kickstarter goal but I hope they do, seems like an interesting successor to the Dingoo style devices and a MUCH cheaper alternative to the pandora device.

    Hope the analog stick is replaceable, the 3DS style nub is vastly superior to the PSP version.

    Well they will meet their goal, they have bumped the specs and if any of you are still on the fence:

    Must listen podcast!
    Justin Barwick, the CEO of Game Consoles Worldwide, just completed an interview for the Geeks With Wives podcast. In the interview he discusses many things about the GCW Zero including the Kickstarter campaign, the hardware, the games, the cost, and more. Give it a listen and then let us know what you think.

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, if I pledge $160 do I get a first run console or just a chance to own one by paying more when it comes out?

    Not a dumb question. I was wondering that same thing, as it's very oddly-worded. "This level of support or above guarantees you one of our first round of consoles shipped,..." I'll bet we're overthinking it, though.

    I did ask them this exact question on their Kickstarter page. I'll post here if I get a response.

    I had read that if you pledge $135 you get one of the first run units.

    So if you pledge $160 you get the same thing?

    Yay they made it earlier today!

    I hope they make their stated goal for release in a couple of months. Seems that all they need to do is put production orders in at this point based on what I've seen on that guys youtube channel.

    Also to answer the questions posted above:

    $135 Pledge Level
    -Guarantees a first production run console
    -Access to official site/forums

    $160 Pledge Level
    -Guarantees a first production run console
    -Acess to offical site/forums
    -T-shirt with GCW logos
    -Glass etched with the GCW logo
    -Decal with GCW logo

    Yeah its worded weird but nothing on the pledge list implies that one gets preference over the other. The only real difference is that your SUPER AWESOME for paying 25 bucks more for a shirt, glass, and decal.

    While I'm still not 100% confident based on the wording (you get an early shot at...) I went ahead and backed it at the $135 level.

    This looks like it might have enough momentum that they really keep adding features, like supporting the HDMI out and allowing the use of USB controllers, neither of which they have added yet but are in the works, supposedly.

    Yeah, guaranteed a first run unit does NOT mean you GET a first run unit with that pledge. It could mean that you get ACCESS to the first run of units only. I wanna pledge, but I really need this to be clear first.

    Great news!

    They responded to my question and said they had gotten this question from several people. And they posted an update to their Kickstarter project stating clearly that you do, indeed, get one of the consoles for the pledge price. So for $135 or more you will definitely get a console.

    This is all assuming, of course, that they do succeed in manufacturing the product. There is never a guarantee with these Kickstarter projects. Personally, I'm happy to take the risk.
