GAME-800 PMP & retro game emulator

Chubby, lurid and with a definitely Apple-inspired UI, the GAME-800 PMP could easily be dismissed as yet another Chinese knock-off.  In doing that, though, you'd be missing out on some retro gaming action, as this "MP5 Player" not only has video and audio playback but an emulator for NES, Famicom, GameBoy, GameBoy Color and Sega Mega Drive games.
