PS Vita clone shows lots of emulator action

Do you still think the PS Vita is too expensive at $249 for the WiFi version and $299 for the 3G model? If so, you may want to consider some alternatives. We previously told you about one China PS Vita clone from Yinlips, but now we have another model to show you.

This one seems to be a new and improved effort from the last clone too. The Yinlips model looked pretty good, but lacked a second analogue stick and decent processor power. However, the latest word from the China clone metropolis otherwise known as Shenzhen, is that a new model by the name of the ‘Droid X360’ is now available for purchase.

It is based on Android again and you’ll get Ice Cream Sandwich straight from the box. Other hardware specs include a 1.5Ghz processor, 512MB of RAM, a HD quality touchscreen, on board cameras, HDMI-out and 8GB of storage for you to save all of your media files.

The main attraction on show here is the system’s ability to play a whole host of emulators. The DroidX360 seems to have the likes of the N64, PlayStation, Game Gear and Gameboy all pre-installed and the pleasing thing to note is that all of the games seem to run very smoothly.

There is a slight slow down when we see Smash Bros running on the N64 emulator, but it’s hardly noticeable and still very playable indeed. Homebrew apps and emulators remain a number one priority for many gamers when they pick up a new handheld system and we’re willing to bet that a lot of you are still looking to do this on the PS Vita given the opportunity.

If you’re interested in getting one, we can probably get hold of the company selling it in China. Let us know your thoughts on this PS Vita clone and if this is something you wouldn’t mind buying.
