With this Retro Gaming Console / System you can relive all your retro games from classic consoles including NES, SNES, Sega, Atari, just to name a few. At the heart is a Raspberry Pi 3 (it's like a mini computer) and some software called RetroPie (which has the emulators and takes care of all the complicated stuff so you can hook-up via HDMI and get gaming).

We've included the latest 8Bitdo Wireless NES Style Controllers which allow you to play games in the lounge room / man cave without any leads floating around. Checkout this tutorial for Setting up your 8Bitdo Controllers. Very easy to do, and these are our recommended controller of choice for retro gaming consoles.

What makes our gaming kit glorious is that it can support almost every old school system under the sun. It is incredibly configurable (or just use it as is!), supports a wide range of controller types, has onboard Bluetooth and WiFi, along with easy connections to modern TVs or HDMI monitors. This kit would be the perfect gift for yourself or someone who would love to relive some gaming nostalgia.

We've done all the hard work with setting up RetroPie on the included microSD card, however, you'll need to install your game ROMs / backups which is well covered on YouTube. Bear in mind as you watch those YouTube tutorials, we've already done all the other steps! 

This kit includes:

The Raspberry Pi 3 has a full HDMI output which means you can easily connect this gaming kit to any modern TV or screen. Checkout our tutorials for button mapping and other setup tips!

If you are looking for the ultimate in retro gaming kits, then checkout our Console with N64 Style Bluetooth Controllers.

  • Mass SD card Image Writer
  • We've built a mass SD card writer using a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, some USB hubs and SD card readers. This beast has enough ports to write 49 SD cards at once! At Core Electronics, sometimes logistics hang-ups mean that suppliers cannot meet our demand for pre-flashed SD cards. During these periods we have to pick up the slack by manually imaging blank SD cards we source ourselves. Of course, this is a super-tedious process, and ...
  • Retro Hand held Pi Zero
  • I bought a Pi zero w from Core Electronics for a friend, also bought the official case too but thought I'd fit the Pi into something he can show off! I used an old hand held game case I had laying around, I had to remove the original circuit board and plan where to place the Pi board....
  • mintyPi
  • This is an awesome project that takes about 6 hours to complete. Hours upon hours of endless fun thereafter! Ideally, some prior soldering experience is advantageous but if you take your time and practice before you start it's beginner friendly! The battery will give just over 3 hours on a single charge and can be recharged via the handy micro USB port. System updates, ROM transfers etc all possible with the Pi Zero W' built in...
  • RetroPie in a Cartridge
  • For $50 and some dedication a retro gaming console can be yours and with HDMI you can play it with any modern TV or monitor. Instead of using bulky and space taking cartridges and discs it's all on the console. For this build, we're going to use Retropie, an awesome software package that handles all your emulation needs with inbuilt Bluetooth and wireless needs. Any Pi can run RetroPie, but I recommend using the Raspberry Pi Ze...
  • Mini NES Style Game Console with Raspberry Pi
  • My son really wanted one of the mini NES when they were released, however he missed out. I already knew that you could use a raspberry pi as an arcade emulator, so I thought why not build him one.
