GamePark's PSP fighter

Korea-based GamePark has released official information on its newest portable gaming and multimedia system, the Wiz GP2X. The system is built around a 2.8-inch OLED touch screen that delivers 320x240-pixel resolution. The Wiz will play MPEG4, XVID and DiVX videos, and be compatible with Flash Player 7, in addition to playing homebrew games that don't have to go through a lengthy licensing process. In addition, GamePark promises new releases, homebrew and otherwise, every month.

The Wiz GP2X will sport a 533MHz ARM9 CPU along with a 3D accelerator, 64MB of RAM and 16GB of flash memory, comparing favorably to Sony's latest 333MHz PSP that makes do with only 64MB of onboard memory. The Wiz GP2X's built-in Li-ion battery also promises to deliver 5 hours of gaming.

The Wix GP2X will be priced at $179 when it launches on October 8. [via GP2X News]
