The XGP (Extreme Game Player) is a portable video game system created by the Korean company GamePark as the follow-up to its GP32 handheld. Initially announced in 2005[1], the XGP was finally announced in March 2006 along with the release of the similar XGP Mini[2] and the XGP Kids.

The XGP is scheduled to be released in three models; the XGP, the XGPmini and the XGP Kids. Contrary to popular belief, GamePark does not wish to compete with Sony and Nintendo with this machine. The XGP Kids is aimed towards children and, as such, will have a significantly lower price point. It is designed to run simpler games tailored to an audience besides 'hardcore gamers'.


The XGP is one of two successors to the GP32 handheld console. The other is the GP2X, which was created by Gamepark Holdings, a separate company that split off from GamePark in early 2005. It is rumored that all but one of the engineers responsible for the original GP32 joined GPH, however, GamePark's PR department has stated that only one of the GP32's designers/engineers went to GPH. The GP2X is an open-source, Linux-based handheld video game console and media player created and sold by GamePark Holdings of South Korea. ... GamePark Holdings is a Korean company responsible for creating the GP2X that was founded by former employees of the game maker GamePark. ...


While the GP32 was only available in select markets (Korea and parts of Europe and Asia), or had to be imported, it is thought that the XGP will be marketed worldwide.

XGP Kids

The XGP Kids is technically similar to the GP32. The two consoles differ in screen size and resolution, available memory (Kids adds 2MB NOR Flash memory), processor type, and storage. Though there have been conflicting reports in the past, these differences prevent the console from being backwards compatible with the GP32. However, GP32 software can be reprogrammed relatively easily to work on the XGP Kids. It is intended to be relatively inexpensive and to give a chance to those who missed out on the GP32 (which had a limited production run) to get something very much like a BLU+. The XGP Kids, like the XGP Mini, will have a smaller screen (at only 2.2 inches) than the XGP and GP32. The GP32 (GamePark 32) is a hand held console built by the Korean company GamePark. ...

Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis (XGP) is an inflammatory sequel of chronic suppurative renal infection and is often associated with an obstruction.
XGP begins with suppurative inflammation and edema within the pelvic lamina propria and adjacent sinus fat leading to ulceration and fat necrosis.
The hallmark of the XGP is an abundance of foamy macrophages (xanthoma cells) that are intermixed with inflammatory cells including lymphocytes, plasma cells, neutrophils and multinucleated giant cells.
