Retron 5


If you are an old school gamer and love your cartridges, this may just be your thing.  The Retron 5 by Hyperkin will play just about any cartridge-based game and upscale them to 720p through HDMI.  The unit is compatible with NES, SNES, Famicom, Super Famicom, Game Boy Advance, Game Boy Color, Game Boy, as well as Mega Drive and Genesis titles.  Add to this it’s ability to save anywhere with a variety of options, and you’ve got yourself a winner.  The expected retail price will be under $100.  It may end up only being a penny shy of that, but I guess you have to take what you can get!

    These retro devices always sound fun and usually are for a short amount of time and then even with 720p upscaled resolution, the graphics we used to love end up looking very dated. Anyone here looking at picking one of these up?
