One main benefits of today’s gaming world is that controllers are wireless and don’t have the inconvenience of the cable getting everywhere . The consoles features Bluetooth technology with its controller that has a range up to 30 feet.
It also features a microswitch directional pad, two programmable macro buttons and a home button for quick in-game access to feature like today’s controllers have.
Pop in some original controllers
For a authentic game play experience , the system has six controller ports, with two for each of the original controllers. This is great for anyone who still has a few of those somewhere floating about .
Sweet Save State’s
One main befits of choosing the Retron is the save state feature of the RetroN 5, where you can easily save at any point in your game and still come back to exactly where you left off with no passwords needed.The Retron also Features a way to copy the save data from the cartridge to a SD card . This is great as a lot on the cartridges are relaying on a battery which does die out and courses the data to be wiped. The Save State can be a great benefit in actually getting around to completing the game that you find your self getting stuck on and scrap the old school password process to rely on.

This is the forth release of the system and I think the design is brill and a awesome concept that would save a lot of space for a retro gamer like myself . Apparently there has been some capability issues in the past that I have been previously told and also some peripherals that aren’t supported . But as I have not had the chance to get a hands on any released Retron’s in the past, I an unable to give out my own solid opinion. For purest gamers and people that are after the nostalgic value you cant beat the real thing . But If this console is compatible for all regions and could boot Roms from the USB or Card Slot that would defiantly be a plus . As this would give gamers the chance to play Fan translated Games IE Tales of Phantasia that we never got play.
