PRE-ORDER!!! Sale price $65.95 ($68.95 once we start shipping)
This Pre-Order will be a batch of 50 of each color combo.
Right now based on information that was posted by Hardkernel we will be shipping Orders between Early and Mid June at this time. We will update as we receive additional shipping information. Due to the current health situation this is subject to change.
Updates from version 1.0 (Please review Version 1.0 to compare differences)
<1> The power input port has changed to a USB Type-C connector.
This allows common smartphone chargers and cables to be used. However, there are a few limitations.
The Type-C port is not a fully featured USB-PD (Power Delivery) protocol interface. There is no USB data communication feature either. It is just a “dumb” power input used for battery charging only.
Additionally, one or two pins of the 10pin GPIO port may be obstructed when charging the device.
<2> A 802.11n SDIO WiFi module has been mounted on the PCB by default.
You can download ROMs via the wireless connection, and multi-player features would be feasible sometime in the future without requiring an external USB WiFi dongle.
Tested throughput with the “iperf” tool was about 40~50Mbps and SMB/NFS file transfer speed was around 4~6MiB/s.
<3> L2 and R2 shoulder buttons added.
Many users requested it, and we added it. It is hoped that many PSX game fans will enjoy it. We are aware the shape of the new L2 and R2 buttons is not perfect, but it’s better than nothing.
<4> A new shell case color is available.
There will be two options for shell cases: Aura Black and Clear White. Both shells are made with transparent resins allowing the status LEDs to be visible on the back side.
The color of the PCB also changed to black from white.
