  • Pandora Box arcade

    Any thoughts on Pandora Box arcade? Are they any good? Which is the best one on the market currently? Thank you

    Yeah I like them. They're good value. The latest one is always the best because they upgrade fairly often with new features. There is a new one coming out soon.

      The only two 'genuine' 3A games ones currently are the Pandora's Box 6 and the Pandora's Box DX. All the various other ones like 8, 9, 9D etc are all 'clones' of the 3A product.

      If you want the best one, get a 3A one, as they generally have a faster processor than the clones. This means they run games like Mortal Kombat better than the clones.

      This is the official store of 3A games.

          Pandoras box 6 lets you add games. The others, you're locked into what's in the list.

          Here's a good resource for PB6

            The proper 3A carts have quad core processors where the clones have single core. I had a 6 which I gave to my brother when his older one died. I have just got a DX and am just starting to play with that. They have an SD card inside that has all of the games on it. You can remove the SD card and copy the entire thing to a USB drive. Then run everything from that while keeping the SD card safe in case the USB craps out. I'm hoping to be able to remove all vertical games as i'll be running mine on a horizontal setup.

                Is there any problems with the power adapter if ordered straight from the AliExpress official store ?

                  This seems like a good resource for information on Pandora's box.

                  Does anyone have experience adding a trackball or spinner to Panadora's Box? Something like this https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001209002511.html

                      For those wanting to play 3D games the 3D is also an option. DX and 3D seem to be top of the pile at this point in time. DX being being the offical 3A product and 3D an unofficial clone. And the King of Air 2 from 3A for vertical screen orientation.

                        I had a deeper look at zerojay site today and the dischord channel is chock full of useful Q&A. It is a full fledged forum for PB including hacking if you are into coding.

                          I've read that the DX supports a trackball, but believe that's the only unit that does.
                          While I started out with the genuine 3A Games pandora box 4,5 & 6, the DX spec wise is miles behind the current clones which have evolved faster.
                          Still good for the older classics but struggles with newer consoles like N64, Dreamcast etc.
                          Zerojay has worked a lot with PB6 and DX and compiled a great games collection for the PB6 - given that the biggest issue with such consoles is the consistency of titles on them.
                          Currently, the pandora's box 3D GB3000 or 18s/Saga s812 will give you the best performance.
