Ordered a PocketGo S30 for $59.99

I was originally on the fence with the PocketGo S30. First run handhelds from this company have issues but for $59.99 on sale I decided to give this one a shot. Hopefully I don't have to wait to long to receive it. The primary selling factor for me was the stacked shoulder buttons and the form factor (looks like a 8BitDo controller with a screen).   Pre-orders have been live for this for over a week now over at retromimi who I hadn't ordered from the past so we'll see how that goes.  The specs are a bit underwhelming but I'm hoping form factor and stacked shoulder buttons are satisfying enough to make up for that. Look for an unbiased review of my findings in the near future.  https://retromimi.com/products/pocketgo-s30 S30 Specification: Screen: 3.5 inch 480x320 IPS CPU: Quad Core 1.2GHZ All Winner A33 CPU GPU: Mali400 MP2 RAM: 512MB Storage: External MicroSD Battery: 2600 mAh

PocketGo S30 Portable Looks Sharp

The Pocket Go S30 first run is now available at  RetroMimi  for $59.99 and looks like it will go up to $89.99 after the first run. I've seen some reports of loose buttons but can't confirm that.  The game console looks slick and like a Nintendo produced product. While the form looks awesome and it looks like a decent system I'm not sure if I'm going to pull the trigger on it even at $60.  I'm going to think over for a couple days. Already using the RG350, RG350P and Retroid Pocket 2 regularly, I don't see much room in my collection for it other than the nostalgic look.  The specs are nothing revolutionary but here they are.  Obscure Handhelds has a good breakdown on the info.   Check it out: https://obscurehandhelds.com/2020/12/the-pocketgo-s30-handheld-looks-like-an-8bitdo-controller/
