This sounds great with all the improvements. I hope it lives up to the hype because I bought a retron3 and it was pure trash in every way you can imagine. Sound was horrible. Worse emulation then a cell phone emulator. I will check the reviews and hope this one nails it.

i wonder if these guys have tried making an optical based retron unit? It would be sweet if they came out with one that read, turbo cd, sega cd, saturn cd and ps1 cd games. Maybe even throw in 3do cd and jaguar cd support as well.

Seeing as the optics wouldnt have to change, they would need the system chips from each platform inside to process the appropriate format.

if they can do it with cart based systems, they should be able to do it with cd based systems as well.

I would jizz everywhere if that happened. great idea!

From what I was reading about the R3 is was bad. The reaction time to the controller was rather delayed if even functioning and the sound was better on the original consoles rather than the Retron 3.

at first i wasn't sure if this was real or fake, but i checked amazon& it seems to be real. there are no words to describe how happy i am.

it looks like there finally done cheaping out on these after market consoles. i can't wait until they do the ps1, sega saturn ,dreamcast, neogeo cd with maybe a N46 cartridge slot. loading should be instant on all games on those systems now because of better disc drive speed.

I know that there is another console out in which you can load it with emulators and roms for almost every console but it's not quite the same.
