“GP2X Wiz” is here to replace the Nintendo DSI!

Our friends over at ThinkGeek.com have come up with the answer to our portable emulation prayers! A single hand held unit that will run most of your favorite emulators and play all of your favorite roms.  We all love the Nintendo DSI, but this unit takes things to a different level with boundless possibilities for the user.

The unit has limited software when you first open it from the box. However, I am sure, all of our readers have all of the emulators and roms they need in some old hard drive stuffed away in the basement or attic.

The unit runs:

Commodore 64
and many many more…..

The unit does more than just emulate great retro games, it also plays MPEG 4 videos, xvid and divx.  The unit features voice recording, calendar, e- book reader etc etc etcetera…  You can navigate the menu through a  high resolution touch screen. All in all, this is a wonderful piece for the retro gamer. There is even an active community of developers that are writing for the unit, the possibilities are endless!

Price $179.99, thinkgeek.com
