New PocketGo pre-orders go live

If you’re one of the ones that couldn’t get over the weird control layout of the RG350 then the New PocketGo might be your thing.

It has the same JZ4770 processor so you can expect decent SNES and PS1 performance from this handheld, and the first 1000 units are available for pre-order now for $54.99 shipped.

If you’re interested, you can order now from retromimi.com and it’ll ship in the middle of December.

  1. Can you confirm if the standard version (without opting for the 32Gb card) pre-order price of $54.99 comes with the os pre-installed or do you have to download it from somewhere and cut the os to your own Micro SD card?

  2. Is this a legitimate site, retromimi.com, to pre-order from?
    Does this device run Opendingux? Will this device feature your excellent firmware upgrades as well @Jutleys?

    • retromimi.com is excellent, I pre-ordered both the original Pocket Go and the new one from them. Shipping was fast and I’m hoping this time it’ll arrive just after Christmas.

      If the seller wasn’t legit, I don’t think they’d be getting recommend on this blog

    • Yeah retromimi is legit. I wouldn’t link any sites that were not.

      It’ll run the same OS as the RG350 so yeah, OpenDingux.

  3. Is this is legitimate site, retromimi.com, to pre-order?
    Does this device run OpenDingux as well?
    Will it feature your excellent firmware upgrades as well @Jutleys?

  4. This is the early bird price for the first 1000pcs. We will increase the price after that.

  5. I like everything other than the colorway. Hopefully they do a dark-grey-with-SFC-buttons version later, like the Miyoo Pocketgo got. (I’d also really like a portrait version)

  6. I don’t know if they can hold that price…and they might not need to anyway. The RG-350 is quite a bit more expensive.
