Yes, I already have all the systems I need to play all the games in my collection, BUT… the RetroN5 would save me so much space on my desk! Right now I have doubles of many of my consoles just to be able to have one hooked up to my computer for recording.. and many of the systems that I don’t have doubles of (or that just doesn’t fit on my desk) I seldom make the effort of recording which means I don’t review them as much..
For those of you that haven’t heard about the RetroN 5 I’ll tell you what it is. The RetroN 5 is a console developed by Hyperkin that can play both PAL and NTSC NES, SNES, GENESIS (MEGA DRIVE), GBA aaaaand FAMICOM games!! *drool* :D
It has wireless rechargable bluetooth controllers, but also ports for your original NES, SNES and SEGA controllers if you prefer that! It can speed up or slow down in game when you’re playing, it can save your game data even if a game doesn’t have that function so you can load and continue later, it has HDMI output but also AV, it enhances the graphics AND the sound of your old games and it’s just freaking awesome!!! I want one.. I want it I want it I WANT IT!!! NOW!!!!!!!
It has been said to release in July this year and it was displayed at E3. I am however hoping it will also get a European release.. I hate having to work with power adaptors >_<
It’s said to be less than 100$! I might even have to get two ;D One for my desk and one for my living room, so I could just pick a game in my Retro Room and play it on the big TV in the living room without having to move all my systems around ^_^ … want…. it…… NOW!
