Review: MCC-216 (C64)

From the review:

"For a number of us, old game system emulation is a fun hobby; for others, it is a frustrating exercise involving endless tweaking of hardware and headaches (not to mention the grey area of ROM acquisition). Arcade Retro Gaming’s MCC-216 takes some of the guesswork out of emulation by actually utilizing an FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) core; this makes life easy for amateurs and puts power into the hands of the pros, allowing us to play some of our old favourites on any TV or Monitor (depending on which model you buy)." (Retro, Tech) -

I had no idea this thing even existed. o__O

Even though I payed $700 for a 70 MB (that's right MB) hard drive for my Amiga 500 and I feel this device is sort of making fun of me, it's pretty cool.

It's certainly compelling. Bringing emulation closer to a hardware level just brings you back to the hardware itself. I am very excited to see how well their amiga core does, and the Atari 2600 Core, when they finish it for the VGA version of this box.

As long as it has luma & chroma connectors to hook up my old Commodore monitor, then that'll justify me keeping it in my basement all these years.
