PXP-900: Looks like a PSP, plays like the old school

by Mark R

pxp-900-thumb-550x413-17228The PXP-900 is clearly designed to look like something else. See if you can figure it out. If you’re stuck, just look to the triangle, circle, square, and X keys on the right.

Yeah, this PXP-900 is no Sony Playstation PSP, but you would probably never know it until you tried to play it. For instead of the latest from PlayStation Portable, a user would get some old school game like Pole Position.

Yes, it appears this guy can only do Roms such as those from NES, Famicom, Super Famicom, Gameboy, Gameboy Color, and SEGA MegaDrive. Granted, I’m not certain of the morality of Roms, because I’ve heard that downloading them can be hazardous to your legal health.

So who is the PXP-900 for? Perhaps for people like me, who remember the days of early eighties/nineties video games with a love. Someone who knows that the video games they put out now are nothing compared with the addictive ones put out back then.

If you are old enough to remember the video games of that bygone era, then you might have a kid who is begging you for a PSP. Something tells me that you can probably pick up the PXP-900 for a cheaper price. Your kid will probably be disappointed, but he or she might come to like older games. It’s a bonding experience waiting to happen!

Or you can get a REAL PSP and unlock it like I did. Not only do I have PSP games and custom apps on it but I have an NES, Genesis, SNES, and N64 emulator all stocked with games; don’t buy this pretendo

I bought an 8gb version on a lark from a guy on eBay for $70 US, including shipping.

The video playback is surprisingly good, so if you watch a lot of download movies/TV shows, etc. it’s worth the price just for that.

The emulation of NES, Gameboy/GBC, and Sega Genesis is actually pretty good – but the GBA and SNES emulation is really hit and miss; some ROMs work fine, while others don’t run at all or have messed-up graphics.

As new PXP9000 owner I experienced an error in reading .nes files after having tried to install other game types. Any idea of how to solve this?

Thanks a lot in advance
