Over the years we’ve seen a variety of retro gaming systems. In other words they’re nothing new. But that isn’t to say they aren’t worth their wait in gold. Anyone with a 20+ year old NES knows how infuriating it is to get their games to work – blow, breath, reset and so on. Nevertheless, we haven’t seen anything quite as versatile as this Retro Duo Portable NES/SNES System Black.
Unlike other retro gaming systems, this one plays both NES and SNES games. Even better it’s portable, with 8 hours of play on a single charge. And if you happen upon a TV during your travels, you can plug it using a set of standard RCA cables and play on the big screen. For two player games there is apparently a set of extension controllers (not pictured), which are apparently included in the limited time $80 price tag (they’re currently running an special introductory $20 discount). Comparatively speaking the screen looks a bit small to some of today’s smarthphones, and we’re not sure if there is a headphone jack. On a final positive note, you can also play Genesis games, provided of course you’ve got the appropriate adapter.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
