The RetroN 5, is everything a RetroCollectee would want. One machine to rule them all, able to play 9 systems out of the box. It didn’t matter if your collection was filled with Japanese Famicom, NES, SNES, GameBoy, Game Boy Color, GBA, Mega Drive or Genesis games, the RetroN 5 could play them all – and you can even use your original control pads too. Better yet these games would be displayed in a way that has never been seen before; through a HDMI port, up-scaled and enhanced with filters to optimise the visuals. This was to be the machine that could fulfil the dreams of anyone who had become used to emulators. Unlike clone consoles, the RetroN 5 approaches things differently. It reads the ROM file from the cart and then runs it through one of the many on-board emulators. It’s a modern approach to running old games that also allows for save States and instant Game Genie cheat codes.
