As I was filtering through the E3 news blowout, I came across the Hyperkin Retron 5. This system bears many similarities to other retro consoles that have been released in the past (see the Retro Duo, Retron 3, etc). However, this one blows everything else out of the water. The system plays NES, Famicom, SNES, Genesis, Game Boy, Game Boy Advance & Game Boy Color. To make this console even sweeter, it support 720p HD resolution via an HDMI cable, the ability to use your NES, SNES or Genesis controllers and has the internal ability to change the screen filter of your game as well as having save states. SICK!
Let’s hope the compatibility issues are worked out as much as possible; as previous consoles of this ilk were plagued by video and audio issues. Expect it sometime this summer!
Release Date: Summer 2013
Price: Less than $100. Final pricing is TBD.
