I'm freaking out!

We covered the news of the Retro Freak quite a while ago, and since then we've been waiting expectantly for more information about this potentially amazing system.

With support for 11 different consoles - Famicom, SNES/Super Famicom, Mega Drive/Genesis, PC Engine, TurboGrafx-16, Game Boy, Game Boy Advance, Game Boy Color, and Supergrafx - the Retro Freak can run ROMs and your original cartridges, and boasts HDMI output with 720p upscaling, as well as save states and screen filters.

Retailer Play Asia has the standard system up for £111 / 154 Euros / $169.99, but a premium model - pricing still undecided - is available that comes with a controller adapter so you can use Famicom, Super Famicom, Sega Genesis, and TurboGrafx pads. Demand for the system has already been overwhelming, according to the retailer.

We'll be reviewing this interesting rival to the Retron 5 in due course, but in the meantime, are you tempted to place an order? Let us know by posting a comment.
