never heard of this system before, but apparently the upcoming new version plays NES, SNES, Genesis and GBA titles.

As if that were not enough, it will also sport HDMI output. The currently available RetroN 3 console supports 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.

sounds kinda neat; if I had a big library of old cartridges I'd think about getting one.  still, I wonder how much of a cut they have to give Big N...

the 5 comes from it also supporting Famicom cartridges.

HOLY CRAP I NEED THIS.

I have the Retron 3, and other than the garbage wireless controllers it comes with (seriously, throw them away), and it's a pretty amazing set up.

This... this just takes the cake.
