These things are popping up like flies: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.54070 . It SOUNDS cool (plus it's PAL and NTSC), but I can envision a laundry list of potential issues. Anyone know anything about this device?

I am going to try take look

I am going to try take look at this thing this weekend, its still all wrapped up in the bubble wrap envelope... sad :( Just to much PC building the last few weeks.. But I did build about 6 PC's (new one for myslef too!) and made 4 people very happy, cleaned out old parts and now have 2 machines to figure where to use..

and even better, cleaning out all that old crap has made room.... FOR NEW CRAP!!!!

Mine arrived the day I was off for vacation (last friday), now Im back but PC issues have taken the front seat so I havent even opened mine. Maybe if somebody doesnt beat me too it I will do an unboxing.

Oh yeah!

I have just started a new blog on the Pandora. I of course will keep you guys updated on the Gamebox, it seems both me and Rob (MaximumRD) are taking the plunge on the latter!

Hell has frozen over

Very cool, though be sure to start a new blog or forum post or something. I'd like to hear about the Gamebox too... ;-)

I received from gamebox factory email with .docx anexed file

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=T134KLWV

In this file see all spec
And look this

1.game card supported, web-downloaded supported
2.Built-in operating system, instant save, tutorial, no-battery save information, reset supported.
Others: clock built-in, calendar built-in, GB-4GB nand flash,

This is other version of arcadebox or have one way to acesses this functions?

They even not respond any email.

It's one of those devices that takes a cartridge to play additional games outside of the games that are built-in. Some of those devices though also can read ROMs off of SD cards. This one appears to not be able to as of yet until someone hacks it.

Back on original topic, I gave in to my stupid side and even though I am broke......I ordered a GAMEBOX last night. Ah well, sadly I am hearing here and there (now that I ordered) that you might not actually be able to load anything except GBA/VIDEO from the SD card, hoping that is not true but we'll see.

Yeah, if you check that forum link that I posted, you'll see that it appears that at least the one guy has not been able to get anything except that to work, but there appears to be hope for a hack to allow anything to be put on the thing. That would solve that problem and then some, i.e., improve the sometimes spotty emulation.

As I mentioned at the start of this topic, I've been burned waaay too many times by these things to bite anymore. It's just not worth the energy. When something has been put through the ringer sufficiently, though, I'd happily purchase...
