PXP2 8Bit Slim Station

some of you maybe know the PXP2, basically a NES clone inside an PSP case.

I just got one and had to play a little bit with it. It's basically a good console for only 15USD.
You have two cartridges included. If you start the console without an cartridge inserted, you get
an "999999 in 1" menue screen, cartridge 1 inserted and you get a "777777 in 1" menue screen, cartridge 2 inserted and you get a "888888 in 1" menue screen.

first look was inside the cartridges, just to see that there's not much inside. they are basically working as "jumpers".

so i opened the console itself.

the small flash rom in the top middle is a S29GL032 rom. took me a couple of minutes and the rom was desoldered and dumped! ;-)

Running it with the EmuvT Emulator (see some posts below) is working great!

If you run the 4mbyte rom with the emulator you only get to the "999999 in 1" menue. If you split the rom into two halfs, the first half is the "999999 in 1" menue, now split the second half again into two 1mbyte files you have the "888888 in 1" and the "777777 in 1" menue + games.
every menue let you choose from different games. i think all games together are about 60 - 70 real games.
