The JXD3000 is currently only available on TaoBao.com, which is a Chinese wholesale and private seller site. It is possible to order from there via a 3rd party such as Zarmark, but it can work out fairly expensive. Give it a few weeks and DX will probably have them anyway.

While we’re here, a few more JXD3000 Playstation vids have shown up on youtube… embedded below for your viewing pleasure.

This new model is apparently capable of emulating the Sony Playstation right out of the box, a first for any handheld gaming machine out of China.

Check the vids below for some Castlevania and Tekken 3 action.
