    Anyone still have/play any of the old gen consoles like snes, genesis, n64 etc. I was able to find some of my old games (all still in working condition too ). Gotta love the good old days of gaming.

    All awesome systems. Super Mario World on SNES is the only Mario game that competes with the original SMB for my favorite of the series (tough call). Gameboy was awesome just for tetris.

    I also used to borrow Gameboys from various friends

    When they released it, everybody thought it would fail " WTF monochrome ? "

    But it was entertaining as

    I wouldnt mind getting the original GB today, Im sure I would still have fun

    RetroN 4 Console Plays NES, SNES, Genesis, Game Boy ó Through HDMI








    The Hyperkin RetroN 3 console, pictured, plays classic Nintendo and Sega games. The RetroN 4, which the company will unveil later this month, will add Game Boy Advance support and HDMI output.

    Game Boy busted? Super Nintendo toast? In need of new hardware to play your old games? A company called Hyperkin has built itself up providing just that ó brand-new game consoles that play classic cartridges. On Tuesday, it announced what looks to be its most ambitious project ever: The RetroN 4 will feature four cartridge slots, allowing you to play cartridges from the Nintendo Entertainment System, Super NES, Sega Genesis and for the first time the Game Boy Advance.
    As if that were not enough, it will also sport HDMI output. The currently available RetroN 3 consolesupports NES, SNES and Genesis, and has S-Video out. It will include a Bluetooth wireless controller, but also feature two controller ports for each console so you can plug in original control pads.
    A built-in digital user interface will allow you to reassign controller buttons and more. Hyperkin will release more details on the RetroN 4 at the Midwest Gaming Classic, to be held March 23-24 in Brookfield, Wisconsin.
    As the prices of these classic game consoles in working condition continue to rise, this could be a cheaper and more space-efficient solution for those who want to enjoy the classics. Cloned systems like this arenít usually 100 percent compatible with the classic cartridge libraries, but itís a good-enough solution for casual players. Not to mention the fact that solutions for playing Game Boy Advance games on the television, besides buying a GameCube and a Game Boy Player, are in short supply.

    Damn, I bet that would cost a lot of money though.

    I remember in the late 90's my neighbor had a similar console

    He got it from Iran (lol), where they imported whatever electronics were available in Asia, but not in Europe / US

    Some of the games on this console were wicked versions of famous games, and were made exclusively for this sytem : Super Mega Turbo Ninja Gaiden, Ultimate Double Dragon ... really much better versions, with crazy moves, etc .......
    There was also a version of Contra, but on steroids

    On top of that, it came with built in adapters for NES and Super NES cartridges , so we could also play Mario, etc ....

    LOL, I remember everyone's reaction to Game Gear. Ooh, it's in color and it has Mortal Kombat, with blood! Then it just sucked when you played it. Man, tetris just made that system, and then Pokemon kept it alive.
