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 SNES 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 latest generation Raspberry Pi 3
- 2x 8Bitdo Wireless SNES Style Controllers
- Preloaded RetroPie Micro SD Card
- Stylish Raspberry Pi 3 Case
- HDMI Cable for Raspberry Pi
- Power Supply for Raspberry Pi 3
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!
