RetroN 5 Gaming System

If you consider yourself an old school gamer and of course you love your childhood's games, then this device is for you.

The RetroN 5 Gaming System, a 5-in-1 console, has 5 cartridges inputs for NES, SNES, Genesis, Famicom, and Game Boy Advance. From connectors, RetroN has the standard AV output, a USB port to charge the wireless (bluetooth) controller, the power socket, 6 control ports (2 x SNES, 2 x Genesis, 2 x NES) and an HDMI output .

HDMI? On a 8/16bit console?

Yes, because RetroN does not just run the games but converts the signal to 720p, with a choice of 4:3 and 16:9 frames. But the sound is also improved as its proper circuits undertake to create a cleaner sound than the original bits.

Also, RetroN can run every title, since it has no region lock. Its price ranges around $140. More information can be found here.
