The DROID is no longer just my phone. It's my gaming machine.

    Holy crap is all I have to say. If you have not rsearched emulators for the phone to play all of your classic games, you need to! It's so amazing that I can play original Nintendo games, Gameboy Advanced games, and even Sega now! I'm like a little kid again. I never had a portabl gaming device like a gameboy growing up so my inner kid is coming out again lol.

    i wish someone would come out with one that allows you to turn the droid over, have the screen flip, and use the d pad on the left side!!!

    then games like mario bros would be feasible... the current control layouts for the emulators is less than desirable for me...

    I just rearranged the controls in settngs. I have Up, Down, Left, Right with W, Z, A, D (respectively), and the A & B Buttons as O & P. Works perfec for me.

    I dont know what you guys mean by upside down, but ive been using the dpad for emulators for a while now. once i open the screen, the emulator (gameboid and genesoid) flip automatically and i go into the settings and change the keys so i can use the droid's keypad. it works awesome and feels like im playing an actually gba...a highly sophisticated gba

    i knew i had been hording thousands of roms all these years for something! i'm actually still thinking about buying one of those purpose built hand-held emulators... having an 8 way d pad, and L + R buttons are a must on some of my favorite old games.

    hell this one even does MAME! sweet.... ThinkGeek :: GP2X Wiz MAME/Amiga/Console Emulator

    i am a huge fan of old games.... i even have an old pc dedicated to emulation hooked up in the living room to the widescreen! mame, nes, snes, n64, gen, ect... 4 PS1 controllers mapped and ready to go with any. i wouldn't mind plopping some extra cash on a nice hand-held just for this.

    This is probably a dumb question, but where does one get the games after installing the emulator?

    Just do a goole search for it. Not being short with you, just don't know if this kind of stuff is actually illegal (because you're using roms of games that we used to pay $30 for)

    Doh...I thought you were going to say you were playing Quake 3 like on the N900s.

    :p

    It doesn't exactly replace my Xbox 360, but I've been having fun with a couple different emulators lately too.

    And yes, downloading and playing roms is technically illegal. You would think roms for systems that have been dead for nearly 20 years wouldn't be a big deal, but it just goes to show you what kind of a company Nintendo is.

    Its not illegal as long as you download ROMS of games you already physically own , for personal use only, as otherwise imposed in the Computer Collectors Code of Conduct.

    I suggest turning off the camera launch from the shutter button and setting the camera button along with the volume up and down as your L+R buttons ....it actually feels pretty good . feels like the normal nes with L+R buttons:D

    How are they coming (on this forum) with TV Out for the Droid? Unlike the Touch Pro 2, the 900 does not need an "App" for TV Out, and uses the "head phone" port, instead of the USB. I guess the Droid would need the video portion on the port.

    Either way, networked FPS on a cell phone is pretty insane.
