There is already 2 compo running for the GP2X, and this system is hard to find (not on the net). As well I don't think most of people will be able to play or even test it... (including judge, and I don't think Dr Neo will offer a GP2X to each judge...)

They are a good little media player but they do cost a bit each.
judging would be very hard ::sm-13.gif::

Judging would not be hard since one can play the games on your computer.
Games can be compiled for use with windows, so anyone can play the games.
Just add a rule that one needs to have a windows version too (I do not know how well this works with apps, but games work great!).

I don't think playing one computer and on the real hardware is the same things (even with a simple SDL port like for the GP2X)

Agreed, but since all games/apps would be judged via that system it becomes fair again.
Everything is then tested at the same surcumstances.
And if one of the judges has a GP2X it's even better to see and tell the others how well it preformes on real hardware (testing all games/apps on there too, to keep it fair for him/her too).

Do you think you can buy MK3 in Micromania ? :-p
GP2X is avaiable in every big import internet shop (Lik-sang, Playasia...)
And not every game made on GP2X can be compiled on the computer...
