Over the past couple of years, game developers have begun the revival of the design of the retro game. These games tend to have pixelated graphics and gameplay that brings back the memories of video games of yesteryear.
Why would i buy this when i have my PSP which can do exactly the same thing?
You just answered your own question!
Why buy a portable at all when a phone does everything, including emulate classic consoles?
Because Physical controls > Touch screen
@sirLucan... Mini Bluetooth gamepad ($15)... Problem solved.
Yea touch screen will never replace buttons....wont ever be as responsive either. Must get a bluetooth controller if you want to use the emulators on your mobile phones.
Optimus has it right. If you're that into gaming on your phone Bluetooth controllers are the way to go. Your phone has all the power it needs to do everything these days, why not use an inexpensive controller if you need to instead of buying an expensive system just to play games on? Portables will die; it's just a matter of when.
People have their Vita's,DS's,Switch & smart phones for that.
Someone tried to reinvent the wheel.
If it had the games installed on it that would be cool but this is already available in many forms or if it took cartridges from gamegear, turbografx and the old Nintendo handhelds that would be cool . But it does none of those things
If Nintendo or sega made one with the entire catalogue of games built in it would sell like crazy. Would love a 128gb handheld Dreamcast/gamecube with all games built in.
So some that's existed many time before this?
have Switch for that
and that gadget was already unnecessary. imagine what huuge success another mee too gadget would be that only played vintage games *g*
What some company should do is just release an app and sell their retro games. They would make a fortune.
What is with everybody getting disagrees for pointing out the facts? Why should any of us buy this when we have had the same thing available to us for over a decade now? It's just emulation in pocket form, something handheld consoles managed long ago. They're asking people to pay out €159 (when officially released) for something that has been available for years now.......what a waste of money. Just pick up a PSP or Nintendo DS for cheap and you can do the same thing as this.
Last couple of years? Ummm... Where have you been?
@optimus exactly , i have a 15$ bluetooth controller and it works perfectly fine with emulators
