Retron 5 releases after June 2013. Supposed to be less than $100. Comes with 2 controllers. Can save games to cart, console, or card. 720P upscaling.
Hyperkin revealed the Retron 5 at the Midwest Gaming Classic today and it looks like I was right about quite a bit of it.
It will have dedicated slots for NES, SNES, Genesis, GameBoy AND Famicom games. The GameBoy slot will play GB, GBC and GBA games.
It will be able to play PAL Games
It will come with a Bluetooth Controller with six face buttons and two shoulder buttons. It will be able to support 4 controllers.
It will have six ports to use the original controllers and you will be able to use any controller for any console.
It will be the first clone to use software emulation as opposed to hardware emulation that's not a dedicated tv-game console like the Atari Flashback 3.
It will be powered by an ARM Chip, not a NES on a chip.
It has an HDMI port, RCA ports and a rear USB port.
It has its own interface that will allow for game saves, programmable buttons, cheat codes and overclocking games.
It will autosave when you turn off the console.
It will be using some sort of digital program to help improve the sound as well as video scaling.
No release date or pricing was announced
I'm really excited about this release! This looks like the executive level clone that I've been dreaming of!
