I've never even heard of that GP2X thing, whatever it is. Team17 are just doing the PSP Lemmings game.

When they've stopped making games for GameCube, I doubt Team17 will decide that some obscure console will be profitable. At all.

Team17 won't decide that because it's not their call. The publisher decides it, and in this case the publisher is Sony.

Three guesses what Sony's preferred console lineup is.


For what it's worth, if a publisher asked for it I'm sure Team17 would make a Cube game. But nobody's going to ask for one now because it would probably not be out until the Revolution was launched.

Is that compatible with GP32 programs? Because there's Genesis, SNES, and Atari ST emulators for the GP32 that would allow you to run their respective versions of Lemmings.

I don't think many companies make GP32 games anyway. As far as I know it's mainly supported by homebrew developers.

Gp2x is not GP32 compatible ! Yes we can use Amiga/Atari/Genesis etc..;emulator.. but we prefere officiel port :p

I prefere Gp2X than PSP (price/homebrew/developpement etc...):)

Well, there's two reasons that there will never be an official port of Lemmings to the GP2X:

1. The Lemmings liscense is owned by Sony. Sony doesn't make games for non-Sony platforms.

2. Even if Sony allowed Lemmings to be made for a system other than their own, it wouldn't be made for the GP2X. The reason being is that the GP2X is not a mainstream system, and so they wouldn't sell very many copies and end up losing money on the game.

That thing runs on Linux, doesn't it? I'd suggest looking for a Linux port of Lemmings, though it will most definately be a homebrew port. If there isn't one, then you'll either have to settle for emulation or buy a PSP.

Next time, try reading what's already in the topic. It usually helps.

GP2X is open-source. Make it yourself :rolleyes:

GP2X is the best thing EVAAARRR!!!

I have a First Edition :)

It can run PlayStation emulation, so grab yourself a copy of Lemmings on Playstation and make an ISO to use on your GP2X. That's legal because you're not distributing any backups of games you have bought.

I'm thinking about doing the same for Worms but I've not found a PS1 copy anywhere yet... not that I've looked especially hard.

Oh, and GP2X games are as profitable as mobile phone games. They generally sell for about 4 and I believe the GP32 had Capcom on board to do some games for a while.

Not really. How many people do you know who have a GP2X? Now how many people do you know who have a mobile? :)

Sure each gp2x copy sold might be as profitable as a mobile copy sold, but since the market is so much smaller, there's really no competition.

True enough.

That said it can be sent electronically (although not installed OTA), rather than on its own SD card, further increasing the profit margin. That would make it relatively risk free, so long as they made their money back (which I admit is far less likely than on a mobile phone).

I agree it wouldn't make a lot of money but it's not wholly impossible and it would be really cool to have :)
