ShinChuck commented on Hyperkin: Nintendo Hasn't Contacted Us About t...:

@WaveBoy I get what you're saying. I've had experience with the previous RetroNs, and they were poor man's consoles.

However, I'm reserving judgement. I've looked up some of the RetroN 5 previews, and the issues you brought up are allegedly being addressed. Yeah, NES & SNES look like crap on a 1080p TV, but Hyperkin is specifically trying to address concerns with the audio and with the old graphics translating better to HD TVs. They've put up some audio tests, as well as some graphic comparisons, and it looks promising.

As well, each game is supposed to have ten save-state slots. While ripe for abuse, it'll be awfully nice to have for old password-based or entirely saveless old NES games.

We'll see. I'm cautiously optimistic, but I won't be sold on it until I've had a chance to really give it a testing.
