I have a question. I’m looking into getting a handheld for emulation purposes, mainly for PS2 and PSP, possibly some GameCube maybe some more classes stuff thrown in later. What would be better overall the XP Plus or something from the Odin line? I don’t really care about the modularity of the XP Plus, aside from a wacky idea to turn the moba attachment into a PSP/ Fighting game controller. Mainly just 4 giggles My main concern is price 400 is really a stretch for what I want to spend
The xp+ performs better at PS2 and GameCube compared to the Odin Pro. If you get it during its Indiegogo campaign it’s not that much more expensive than the Odin pro (about 350ish USD).
Alternatively , you can get a smartphone with a Snapdragon 870 and detachable controllers which would outperform dedicated handhelds at a cheaper price.
