If I can walk into a store and buy one, I might pick it up. If not, my Raspberry Pi + 8Bitdo controllers will suffice. All that needs to be done is for someone to dump the Starfox 2 ROM, and that will probably happen very soon after the console is released.

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

People with Raspberry Pis are definitely the "Crossfit Guys" of gaming right now.

I don't get it. What is wrong with me and my rescue dog rewarding ourselves after watching The Wire which by the way is the best show ever with a little Raspberry Pi action.

That's the one I bought, great kit.

Question for those who have done this already, is there any way to improve the graphics? We've been playing Mario Kart for SNES. The track looks ok but the field around it is a green blob for the most part. I realize this isn't HD gaming by any means but sure it looked better on the original system.

Has anyone here used a Retron 5? It seems to be a decent solution if you have access to the cartridges.
