GCW Reaches Kickstarter Funding Goal; heading towards stretch goals for a March (?!) delivery

Image
The GCW Zero Kickstarter campaign reached its funding goals a few days ago, and now seems close to hitting close to $200k in funding. This is a tempting console, filling in the gap between a Dingoo class and Android gaming console device.  I do think it’s important to at least read this thread on Dingoonity before rushing to join in. There is clearly support for such a device (don’t we all know it – or you wouldn’t be here) but Kickstarter delivery records are not always the best for shiny new toys, and delivery in March is so tempting it sounds almost misleading, considering Chinese New Year is coming, and not all of the original pre-kickstarter supporters of preordered units have received their units yet.Don’t let this stop you from pledging – just do it with open eyes, please, and be prepared to wait. All good things …

Gambatte binary for OD end-user release

Gambatte binary for OD end-user releaseJanuary 12, 2013, 01:57:45 PM by qbertaddictcocosx has released a new optimized version of Gamebatte for OD!QuoteHi,
frustrated with Shantae not working properly under GnuBoy and OhBoy on A320, I've recompiled the Gambatte OD with recommended optimization flags on the OD end-user release toolchain. The previous Gambatte release by abhoriel segfaults on OD end-user.
Short testing shows that overclocking to 408 Mhz, it runs Shantae and Wendy at 60 FPS even scaled up.Discuss it here: http://boards.dingoonity.org/dingux-releases/new-gambatte-binary-for-od-end-user-release/

Nvidia launches new Android handheld console at CES

Image
Nvidia is synonymous with gaming of course, but up till now, holding their hardware in your hands would have caused some nasty solder pricks.Still, they clearly see the future the way readers of this site have for months, have improved their ergonomics, and now announced their extremely well specced (though IMHO, extremely hideous looking) handheld console at CES:Lets not forget the original Nintendo DS looked like it was inspired by a waffle iron, but somehow managed to become the bestselling gaming console of all time.  There’s much to like about this extremely impressive device – let’s hope its priced like a printer, not a 4K TV.Read more here!
