Hyperkin Retron 5

If you are an old skool gamer, the Hyperkin Retron 5 could make you very happy indeed. The console offers compatibility with 10 classic gaming cartridges – The NES, Famicom, Super NES, Sega Master System, Genesis & Megadrive as well as Game Boy original, Color and Advance.

Priced at just £65, the Retron 5 offers maximum value alongside optimum retro gaming, whilst taking up minimum space.

With games being able to be picked up for pennies online, the new Hyperkin Retron 5 is the ultimate retro gaming machine and will appeal as a more cost careful way to kill some time and bring back some quite awesome memories in the process. Its not all retro however, the console comes with a USB port to allow charging of the wireless controller, and a HDMI output for HD TV connectivity. Alongside the Wireless controller, users have 6 controller ports allowing them to use their original controllers, and all controllers can be used on any platform, so if you lived and died by your SNES controller, the Retron 5 will let you play Megadrive games with it.

There is the ability to select the aspect and change it from 4:3 to 16:9 for the best possible visual experience, and with the use of shaders the console will clean up images and produce vibrant colors with a resolution of 720p. Gameplay wise, users will be able to overclock games, giving the ability to speed up or slow down their games as they see fit, so if Mario isn’t hectic enough for you as it is, you can play it speed up, for increased difficulty!

Now all things considered, are you sure you want that PS4??
