The GP32 isnt dead
and even if it did "die" it would linger on as we are - already ppl are making mods etc.. Furthermore Gamepark's parent company is kinda big as well.. for a clue as to who they may be have a look inside one
Gamepark have kinda been annexed a little - and told to get on with it. They were started as basically a pet project by some exec.. and it just took off. Gamepark need more pennies though to push it further afield.. one fears the parent company is loosing interest. A great product spoilt by mis-management.. where have we seen that before?
I for one quite like the control, its microswitched, and due to its "sticky out" design can be controlled with the same fluidity as a joy stick - that is to say you dont have to take your thumb off it when moveing it.
Playing Speedball 2 through caSTaway is great!
[edit ---- adding link to pic of GP32 so you can see the microswitched control pad. http://www.gbax.com/gp32pics.html
