Its ummmm..... really really small. Thats not good at all for my big hands. Cute YES, but I am not in the market for it. If I wanted a smaller version of a PSP ..then maybe.

so, this means that gamepark totally changed its strategy. the former xgp protoypes were much bigger and looked more sophisticated. this one here seems to be a kind of "gp2x micro". Looks nice, but the success depends only on the dev support.

Why it looks very similar to the "Cenix" (and other clones) media/gameplayer?

And why the redesign?

Imho $ as XGP realized that going directly after Nintendo or Sony wouldn't work.

So isn't that funny that after all the XGP will not be unlike the GP2x - the emphasised media player function first, the rest second.

GP != GPH so These are different companies.

XGP was a commercial game console project of GP not GPH. I think GP developed this model to compete with GP2X.

I hope our dev community do not divide. :(

I doubt it. This doesn't seem to be made for gameplaying, and I haven't seen a single dev for the last 6 months or so display any interest in the XGP.

Because the first XGP was not for homebrew software. It was for only commercial games. But it seems that GP have changed their strategy after loosing focus.

Because i agree Chaos... It's impossible to compete with Nintendo and Sony in commercial games arena.

Technically of course it is but indeed - what with software support? Without blockbuster tittles any console will not go anywhere. Then the marketing needs lots of $ to be just seen in the mass market.

GP (and GPH of course too) don't have resource to face even the Nintendo and superior specs mean nothing when there is no support.

But it's good that XGP will show probably after all. Hopefully the screen will not be in a weird resolution and cpu will be Arm derivate.
(so porting gp2x<->xgp could be relatively easy)

Wow, man! What do you mean even with Nintendo? Nintendo are currently selling a lot more handhelds than Sony. And Hanz it obviously is made for gameplaying otherwise how would you explain the name XGP (Xteme Game Player) but if you mean that it will end up competing with the Cenix Game Player which has only some mini games so far I think that you are right but it will be a lot easier to use your handhled as a mp3 player on the bright side so I am definetely considering to purchase it.

1) I'm quite interested in this device as a developer, as it has hardware OpenGL support, so I'll be able to port some nice 3D games (and Flash), and looks reasonably easy to develop for (I hope). However, I'll never leave my GP2X behind :)
2) I'm not interested in this device as a consumer, because it looks expensive and more of a PSP-clone than anything else. Plus, the community isn't going to be behind it as much as they are behind the GP2X.

I think I'll see how it evolves before deciding whether or not to get one.

I must say, hardware OpenGL support is quite w00t :).

Hardware OpenGL? You sure? This is a major re-design, and I haven't seen specs for this XGP yet...
