First Look At The GameGadget Retro Gaming Handheld In Action

First-Look-At-The-GameGadget-Retro-Gaming-Handheld-In-ActionWhilst we've all been enjoying our Easter weekend and catching up with our gaming backlog, a few lucky gamers have managed to get their hands on the GameGadget handheld. With the first batch of units sent out late last week, several videos showing the retro gaming handheld in action have surfaced on YouTube.

If there has been anything holding the retro gaming community back from investing in this new handheld, it's the lack of footage previously available showcasing what the device can really do. With so many existing emulation devices out there ranging from homebrew enabled consoles to mobile phones, the GameGadget really needed to prove it holds itself above the rest.

Videos showing several Sega Mega Drive classics such as Vectorman, Flicky, and Golden Axe 2 have been uploaded to the official GameGadget YouTube channel, offering an early look into how Mega Drive games handle on the device.

Hopefully more footage of the device running various other consoles will surface online shortly, but until then this leaves us teetering on the edge of yet another gaming purchase!

At least the design looks like it is of a really high quality unlike some devices like this, call me a purist though but just don't think I could ever use a device like that.

I could and would be very happy to use the GameGadget - I'm a fan of emulation (it's a way to keep games alive that would otherwise be unachievable to a lot of us) BUT as emulated titles are essentially free, how many people would bother paying for games? And how long until the firmware is hacked to enable 'free' ROMs to be played?
It does look good, though.

The people who preordered the Game Gadget haven't been able to use it yet as Blaze shipped the games with no software and then had issues getting that software out. So, five days after release and from all reports the console is still unusable. Not a good start.

I received my gamegadget yesterday and like all who have received theirs we still cant use it, as the 'activation' software hasnt been released due to it being full of bugs, thankfully most people have been patient however it would have been more sensible to withhold the release until the software was available because all GG's require activation/registration before they can be used, so at the moment i have a very pretty looking paperweight.

I have an Xperia play a dingoo and a gp2x so I don't think I need this.
Maby I would have bought it had it been released a few years ago.
