Retron 5

Retron 5

There are at least ten lists floating around the Internet (most of them on Buzzfeed) about things that happened during our childhood and how we should feel like Dinosaurs because: Ecto Cooler has been gone for more than a decade; Maggie Simpson is old enough to drink, and N64 would be able to drive if it was a person. Normally we’d be all nostalgia be damned! because it’s really convenient to reminisce about our childhood with a quick game of Vectorman on our iPhone (legally obtained of course), but we actually kind of miss blowing in cartridges and the triple tap you’d need to get Zelda working. Kids these days have it so easy. But we digress. The Super Retron 5 is a new, old school console with slots for SNES, NES, Genesis, Famicom and Gameboy and a wireless gamepad. If you’re lazy like us, you never got around to selling all those games sitting in boxes in your parent’s basement. See, laziness does pay off sometimes. Available July.
