“Where do you put the old carts”? I heard this bizarre question far too frequently when I showed off my NES Mini. I would argue the reason for this was down to the fact it’s pretty much the size of two stacked cartridges. While adorably cute, having something as tiny as the Nintendo NES Classic Edition meant comprises, and I thought the ability to use original NES cartridges was the cost. Elsewhere in the market, Hyperkin have proved me wrong with their RetroN HD. It’s a system that’s only slightly larger than Nintendo’s NES Mini console, (5.5″ x 2″ x 6″ compared to 5” x 1.5” x 4”). However, this piece of hardware is a miniature console that not only looks similar to its inspiration, but also one that actually plays NES cartridges instead of emulated ROMs.
