Anbernic RG353V/353VS Pre-Sale Discount To October 6

  The Anbernic RG353V/353VS pre-order sale is still going on until October 6, 2022. The devices are expected to ship out starting mid-October in order of who reserved first to last for each option. Both devices are currently at an $8 discount for pre-orders.   *Update 9/30: It does look like there are some QA issues with early review devices where the screen is obviously misaligned. No clue if this will be an issue with regular orders or not and it doesn't look like every review device has it but it's something to keep an eye on. A misaligned screen would drive me insane. Probably an easy DIY fix though. Reviews are starting to show up on the device and seem mostly positive.  The 353V and 353VS can be ordered from Anbernic.com . *Disclosure: This is a referral link where I will benefit from any purchases made.

Anbernic RG353V/RG353VS Video [Pre-Order Starts Tomorrow]

 *Update: The RG353VS starts at $89.99 and the RG353V starts at $112.99. The device should start shipping out mid-October. The price on both options I think is great!  The price on these really sets the stage for a great price on the upcoming "Anbernic Mini" too!  It looks the the Anbernic RG353V and RG353VS are set to launch soon. Pre-orders for both models start tomorrow on Anbernic.com .  The unusual move by Anbernic to offer a version that does not have dual microSD Slots (no dual boot), half the RAM, and no touch-screen which could be beneficial for some people who don't care about those three features who are looking to save a few dollars... There is a "Buy Now" option on the Anbernic site at the moment but it will not be live until tomorrow. 

Anbernic RG353V Should Be Available This Month

Anbernic RG353V  It looks like the Anbernic RG353V will likely come out this month (September) followed by the RG505 in October and the Anbernic Mini at some unknown point after that.  Anbernic RG505  The 353V appears to be narrower than the RG351V but with two thumb-sticks which seems somewhat off-putting to me. Under the hood,  the 353V should have equivalent performance of the 353P which should be great performance up to DS level and good performance up to PSP. It will also be able to handle some PS2 Emulation.  All in all, it looks like it could be a decent buy for some people. Personally,  I'm passing on this device. Combined with being the 3rd Anbernic device with the same SoC (503,353P,353V) and uncomfortable looking thumb-stick placement, I have no real interest for this one. I would have really liked a RG351V upgrade (Same width device) with just one thumb-stick or two offset sticks. Making the device narrower with added controls seems like a bad decision.  Of the three up
