The Hyperkin RetroN 5. The system that Joystiq describes as “kind of bananas.” Let’s talk about the important stuff. The Hyperkin RetroN 5 Gaming System specs:

It’s called the RetroN 5 because it has 5 cartridge slots: one each for NES, SNES, Genesis, Famicom, and Game Boy Advance cartridges. You can play your original cartridges for any of these systems. You can also plug in Super Famicom, Mega Drive, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy cartridges as well.

Universal Chipset
Region locks and compatibility are no longer an issue. The RetroN 5 will play both PAL and NTSC cartridges. The aim is 100% compatibility with all cartridges for no problems with CIC lockout chips and FX chips.

The RetroN has standard AV output, a USB port to allow for charging of the wireless controller, an AC Adapter to power up the system, and a HDMI output for HDTV connectivity.

But, you might say, why would I want to watch graphics from the 80s on my HDTV? The RetroN 5 up converts the video signal to show clearer and cleaner images, with vibrant colors on an HDTV with a resolution output of up to 720p through the use of shaders. You can also select the aspect ratio via the GUI, from the standard 4:3 to the HD ratio of 16:9.

And audio output quality is better, as well. Using audio interpolation, the RetroN 5 creates new samples between the originals for a smoother, crisper sound output than the original sound. Email business inquiries to Help the channel by donating BitCoin to 1MfVZVMjfUUq8srg1d4RbgXR5e7JLw7R6P

  1. I like how real you are with the reviews. Plus the corny jokes and your timing is pretty good. I think you'd be good as a comedic relief in a movie.

  2. You can visibly see the lag between when you push the buttons and what happens on the screen with Mario All Stars.

  3. U seem cool. U are a food addict like me. Look up the snake juice diet. It's like rehab for the body and no lose skin.
