Hey all,

I just found out about this little guy a few days ago, and something about it feels very exciting to me. Maybe it's the idea of collecting (numbered!) cartridges, maybe it's the mix of popular and obscure games on offer, maybe it's my portable gaming fascination... but it's probably a mix of all of those.

I know there's a good mix of vintage/retro gaming collectors here - what do other folks think about it? Personally, I'm pretty close to just going all-in and preordering everything on offer.

Well if it can play Clayfighter, it must be the perfect system.

I saw an article about this a few weeks ago. Looks good, but I will bet anything that it fails big-time. I would be surprised if they even issue another cart. This type of thing is just too obscure to survive.

I've been writing reviews for close to 18 years and have been sent so many of these types of devices! I have to say, the idea of collecting carts is also something that intrigues me. The last thing I had with carts was the MD Max (Genesis clone), that had multi-carts available for it. I guess those of us from the cart generation will always have nostalgia for these devices.

Thanks for sharing. I didn't know about this one until I saw this post!

Yeah, I don't imagine it's going to take the gaming world by storm and fly off shelves or anything - it's admittedly a niche product aiming at a niche market. I've got high hopes that at least what's been announced for later this year will see the light of day, but only time will tell, I suppose.

I'm heartened that they're doing the diligence to license the games from the rights holders, and the cost per cart feels reasonable to me, so those are points in its favor.

An interesting run-down by the folks over at Digital Foundry. Sounds like quite a lot of care went into the various emulation methods on offer - worth a read/watch if you’re curious.

Looks pretty nice. Watching the video made me want to buy one.
