You know, they just need to get these things into stores so people can get their hands on them. You're right, the fact that it's a common target makes it more attractive so there is more original stuff, even out of homebrew. In fact the idea that it is a platform with no changing specs and that there is a huge dev community makes me want to try developing for it. If I ever saw one in the stores I'd be a lot more tempted to get one, and I bet it would make a lot of other people feel the same too when they get to hold it in their hands.
I guess I do want to play all the new games for other portables and consoles and am pretty busy with those... I wonder how much use I would get out of it. I have tons of unfinished games just because there are so many.
I did almost order a GP2x on a couple occasions... I just wish I had more time to be able to enjoy it and I guess I don't have enough time to enjoy all of the options it has to offer so it doesn't really suit me right now. If I was getting one as a gift I definitely would be happy and wouldn't turn it down.
