looks like a wiiu pad had a clash with a psp. does this thing have a fanbase? if not it will be forgotten and under the tech rug in 2 weeks.

There is a sizable fanbase for Yinlips and, and their main competitor, JXDs devices. Many modders have created unique firmwares for these things, updated several flaws in other releases of similar devices (such as updating the 3D drivers to a much better version than the one factory installed).

The big thing with these devices is that they push Android developers, of software and hardware, in new directions by supplying physical controls. Look at the upcoming "add-ons" that are being created, basically turning other Android devices into something similar to what you get here by default.

Ahh thanks for informing me, so do you think this will catch on and become big? After doing some research off of what you said , it looks like its a piracy machine for playing EMUs and its at a decent price as well. decisions... my qualms about it = support in the long run.

Support from the company, such as Yinlips or JXD, is pretty low at best. They don't make a version then go on and revise it and try and make money in the long run. They hit a certain price point and do their best to get hardware within that range plus their profit margin.

Android OS only facilitates this idea. Makes it easier for manufacturers to do this type of thing. They can make adjustments over 2 or 3 hardware versions each year and rename each new device, slightly, and release it.

They do listen to the fans though and we at Gaming on Batteries have been doing our best to relate to them problems we have encountered or have heard of others having with different pieces of hardware (such as the resistive screen on the S601, they added a dual touch resistive on the S602 after feedback was sent read).

Yes, these things are great for emulation purposes. We don't use them for this at GoB but many do and we are not trying to shy away from that fact, we just don't promote it when there are so many great Android games available that run quite well on these things.

No, it is not a PSP Go though it is similar in austhetics.
