Pxp-900 Retro 8/16/32-Bit Handheld Video Game System Looks an Awful Lot Like a Psp

by Paul Strauss

Does this handheld gaming system look familiar at all? When I first saw it, I had to do a double-take too.

While the PXP-900 steals more thant a few of it’s design cues from the Sony PSP, don’t expect it to play the latest PSP games – it only plays retro game ROMs. The system is the latest and greatest cheapie jack-of-all-trades media player, digicam, audio book reader, FM radio, gaming combo system fresh from the streets of China.

The handheld runs an emulator that can play NES, Famicom, Gameboy, Gameboy Color, Super Famicom, SEGA MegaDrive and  some sort of 32-bit ROM games too (although the product description doesn’t elaborate). And while most retro games are built for a 4:3 screen ratio, it looks like the console works some sort of stretchy magic to make games play on its 4.3″ widescreen 16:9 LCD.

So if you’re willing to take a gamble on one of these questionable mutant consoles, you can find the PXP-900 over at Chinagrabber for $89.99 (USD).

    switch it on then hold the start button and press any button on the other side of the console, it plays nes snes mastersystem and megadrive games (.rom not .smd), the snes games need to be .sfc format. (you can rename .smc to .sfc) i have tryed quite a lot and only had probs with mario Kart. I got an 8gb version off of ebay for £31 but if i put more then 4gb on it all the extra file become currupt and i get wrong file type messages when i know they work other then that its all good (radio is useless and camrea is crap) the music video and ebook works great.

    I have this PXP9000 from China. Somehow my .nes games dont work anymore. I tried to install PSP games before I knew only .nes games worked. So I erased my memory. Do you know how I make the .nes games work again? Do I need to reinstall a new emulator, bio and more?

    Thanks a lot in advance for any piece of advice…
