Gamepark reveals XGP and XGP mini

Share

Intriguing open-source handheld, the Gamepark GP2X, is to get both a
redesign and a smaller sibling called the XGP and XGP mini
respectively. These open-source gadgets which, like the GP2X, may not
become available to UK other than through importers, allow you to run
classic console emulator software and have generated quite a following
in the US and Asia as well as kicking up a bit of copyrights fuss.

The
full-size upgraded XGP is set to incorporate new Wi-Fi connectivity and
a DMB TV tuner, while the mini (which is pretty much the spitting image
of a Game Boy Micro) will boast an SD card slot. Hopefully, if
Gamepark’s luck proves better than Gizmondo’s, we may someday see an official European unveiling of these neat looking consoles.

  • Hello,

    To correct some of the information in this article, the XGP and XGP Mini are not redesigns of the GP2X; they are two completely new consoles made by a totally different company.

    I can understand that you confuse the two; the companies have almost the same name, but the GP2X is manufactured by Gamepark Holdings and the XGP series by Game Park. They were originally the same company, Game Park, when the GP32 was released, but split up in two, since they didn’t agree on wether the successor of the GP32 would be open or not.
