RetroN 4 Plays NES, SNES, GBA & Genesis Games Via HDMI

Super PolyPixel - Currently, a company called Hyperkin sells a device called RetroN 3 which allows gamers to play NES, SNES, Super Famicom, Sega Genesis, and Mega Drive cartridges with just a measly S-video and composite video output. However, Hyperkin has announced their newest device: the RetroN 4. It will be officially unveiled at the Midwest Gaming Classic trade show.

So can most high end mobile phones.

Galaxy S2 will output 1080i to your TV with a miniusb-hdmi adaptor, has emulators for pretty much every system up to the N64 and you can even use a PS3 pad via bluetooth.

This niche product is aim at the hardcore retro gamers who don't care for emulators.

Most 'hardcore retro gamers' as you put it don't actually want to use their old carts.

I have a mint copy of FF3 boxed up for example, if I were to open the box every time i've played that over the years the box would be ruined.

If people want to restict their access of retro gaming to what they own then by all means, buy this kit. Why you would insist on doing that is beyond me.

Yeah but mobile phones suck ass for gaming.

I honestly would rather not touch them for gaming. I use the actual consoles + games for my retro gaming usually unless its a super rare game that's expensive.

Is this website design for the hard of seeing?

That thing is pretty cool. If it's cheap and it works well, I might pick it up.
