RetroN 5: Relive Your Golden Years of Gaming

The Retron 5 is a “clone console” that can play NES/Famicom, Master System, Genesis/Mega Drive, Super Nintendo/Super Famicom, Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance games via 720p HDMI and using their original controllers. Yeah, this is actually a real thing.
