I don't think that plan is for us here. Obviously we wouldn't bother. It could be so that they could sell the unit bundled with a bunch of arcade classics etc out of the box for the general public that may not be into getting "warez" on their own. This way it could be sold like those cheapo Caplet things that came bundled with a bunch of games maybe. Then more could be ordered online or something.slaanesh said:EvilDragon said:The GCO in Leipzig is over - and I got quite a few news directly from GPH.
Here is a short summary:
Another interesting thing is that GPH plans to license some ROMS for emulators. I doubt Sega or Nintendo might license anything, but some Arcade-companies already licensed some of their games to other companies, so it might work out here.
This could make it possible to legally emulate some Arcade classics!
I don't know if this is actually that great - what happens to emulators like FBA and MAME4ALL that already do that kind of thing for *ahem* free?
I do think that them making games for the Wiz = FAIL. They should concentrate on the SDK more (end of the year? what a joke, seeing how bad the scene is now by then it will be totally gone without an SDK) as that is where all of the software will come from. A few GP32 ports will not do well, it is a waste of their time and money. The above mentioned "general public" would not bother either as those games pale in comparison to stuff on the PSP or DS. Who will bother with "Blood Cross" when all of the KOF games, SFII, Samurai Shodown etc are better and "free". If they must do games why not use that 3D chip that as of now is a waste of silicon in the Wiz.
