GCW Zero Consoles for sale!! Brand New!!
« on: March 26, 2014, 07:09:37 PM »
Hi.

I have six white and two black GCW Zero consoles for sale.
These are brand new and still boxed.

Specs: http://www.gcw-zero.com/specifications

120 euros each.

Payment via paypal can be sent to Immortalis39@gmail.com

I will post worldwide using standard or registered mail, your choice.

I need to shift these consoles hence the knockdown prices.

Pm me with your address and choice of colour and I will post it right out.

Feel free to ask any questions you wish.:)

I don't see the advantage over an ARM tablet as those have similar features, often with more memory and better resolution.

I've heard great things about the GCW Zero consoles. They appear to be easy to develop for, well built, and long lasting. Which is more than I can say about a lot of devices I've seen sprout up over the past few years.

 As for me, I had a JXD 7300, but sent it back to the company because it was problematic.
With a little bickering, I was able to get a JXD S7800b back instead, which from everything I am hearing, is a major step up from the 7300 featuing improved specs, better design, and high compatibility. Apparently I can run both Dreamcast and PSP on it not to mention DosBOX at very high speeds...

....that's a sale to me. :)

Mine should be in tomorrow if the post office gets its butt in gear. It's already two days late. Grumble grumble.

Its a little weird.

Good thing about this console is that has official amiga kickstart licenses included. I heard the all-commodore emulator VICE comes pre-installed and ready to go.

So, supporting this console, also supports what remains of commodore, in a "spiritual" way.

I'd like to know how the games look on the screen's resolution and also if it includes all games pre-installed...

Where did you hear this, because there is nothing about this mentioned in their literature?

On siliconera.com:

"...the Zero comes with two emulators: Commodore and Amiga. Their BIOS can be legally distributed with the hardware."

There's a vid on youtube with GCW Zero running a c64 emu and uae4all.  I'm almost tempted to buy one from Think Geek.

So it runs uae4all?
Not sure that's much of a selling point.

Any more than trying to run uae on a Raspberry.

I can do that on the laptop I'm typing on right now, probably better.

The only advantage I can see is the portability.

Well yeah... other portable units like Dingoo or Caanoo also do the job pretty well. But the GCW Zero is newer.

I guess I'm just not part of the target market, because I don't get it.

I've got enough devices, especially those I can play old fashioned games on.

I'm not in the market but it's pretty cool to carry around a portable retro system that can fit in your pocket.

Well, pretty much every smartphone is capable of running emulators, and even have a display with decent resolution. The GCW isn't able to display an C64 or Amiga screen without rescaling it.

That appears to be the primary advantage. And for those of you who still use a lot of Amiga games, its a really good one.
I don't want to knock it as, its just the apps I still use are productivity tools that will run under MorphOS (and that's not nearly as portable as the smallest device that runs on is a 12" iBook).
The Genesis and Playstation compatibility are nice.
And once all the hardware drivers are sorted out, original software created for the platform could be pretty cool.
