Got to admit, even as a self proclaimed retro purist it is tempting.

To blessed to be stressed.
80's music makes me feel fabulous.
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.

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 (perpetually): NHL 95, Mega Man 2 and Super Metroid

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?

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 :)

never had any problems using retron 3's, i just use them to preserve my original systems, ill definitely be getting this retron 5 too. my only deal is its under 100$? i was hoping it was more due to the fact of all the new features...
