Retroid Pocket 2 Plus: First In-Depth Look by Taki (YouTube)

Screenshot from Taki's RP2 Plus Video (YouTube) If you have any interest in the Retroid Pocket 2 Plus ($99), you definitely need to check out Taki's latest in-depth YouTube video! The stock Firmware looks like a huge improvement this time around and it should be a lot easier to setup than the original RP2 which was on the difficult side for setup. Add in improved buttons, a drastically more powerful processor, Android 9 optimization, and a touchscreen, I really don't see any reason to not buy this handheld at $99.  For $99 ... at least on paper, this is the best thing that has happened in the budget priced handheld realm in a while...  The RP2 Plus can be pre-ordered now for $99 + Shipping! Units are expected to ship out by December.

Odin Retro Handheld Dock Announced

It looks like the Odin Handheld will have an optional dock that looks interesting. It will include two Gamecube ports to play games using original GC controllers. There's no word on the exact price of the dock yet. We do know the base model (without a dock) will have a price of $199.99 for early adopters and the price will go up after that. What started out looking like potential vaporware has really started to shape up into an interesting handheld emulation option that can handle up to GameCube/Wii/PS2 level emulation on the go.  Keep an eye on Indiegogo for the pre-sale to go live at some point in the near future. I think the attractiveness of this handheld at the premium price point may have been dulled by the upcoming Steam Deck from Valve but the Steam Deck if you haven't reserved one yet will be incredibly hard to get your hands on next year due to the massive demand.
