Got to admit, even as a self proclaimed retro purist it is tempting.
I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

Ugly as sin (especially with that dial on the top), but it's something I'd love to own - simply for the convenience of one box playing so many formats, and it can play American games.
Looking at the image, it's a bit confusing - it looks like it takes SNES controllers, but the proprietary controllers look like Mega Drive ones. It looks like I'lll have to grab a SNES controller while I'm at it.

That pic is of the RetroN3. Guessing you never seen a RetroN system?

No thank you. Heard that a few games didn't work so well on the RetroN3 so I will stick with the original consoles.

Seeing that I would really only need it to play Bionic Commando, Contra, DKC series and Genesis NHL games, I think this option is the best for me.
Currently playing: DKCR, Shinobi 3 and Mega Man 9

Pics of the Retron 4 are up on Hyperkin's Facebook page (though there are still a couple of squares left to reveal). The controller looks pretty weird.

The presentation should be over by now, does anyone have any details on the system?
11. Posted: Sun 24th Mar 2013 00:59 GMT
Okay, Looks like nobody is posting any information but I found a video of the presentation.
It plays NES, SNES, Genesis, Gameboy, Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advance, Famicom, Super Famicom, Megadrive and has been renamed to Retron 5 (because of the 5 cartridge slots).
You can save your spot in any game at any time. It will be under $100. Bluetooth controllers or use original system controllers. you can use any console controller to play any game, for example, use a SNES controller to play a Genesis game. You can also map the buttons. Also HD HDMI output.

This thing is incredibly tempting now and with a very good price, might just buy it

As @ogo79 said, the SNS-RZ-USA is a prime giveaway that it's not a legit retail cart.

I'd like to play my GBA games on a tv

Seems like a good value for the price.
