NES Classic Edition? Pfffff… who needs an NES Classic when the Hyperkin RetroN 1 HD Gaming Console for NES is back in stock on Amazon? This $48 retro console is designed to look very similar to the NES Classic Edition that everyone went crazy over last year, but it’s better for two main reasons. First, you can get one for $48 instead of the $250 you’ll need to cough up to get an NES Classic on Amazon. Second, instead of shipping with just a handful of preinstalled games, the RetroN 1 HD takes Nintendo’s original NES cartridges, so it can play every NES game ever made!
Here are some more highlights from the product page:
- HD audio and video (720p), 16:9/4:3 aspect ratio switch
- High compatibility for NTSC AND PAL cartridges (via bottom case switch)
- Premium classic-style “Cadet” controller (10 ft. cable)
- 3 ft. HD cable, 6 ft. Micro USB charge cable with USB AC Adapter
- Also includes AV ports with AV cable
This awesome console is back in stock as of the time of this writing, but there aren’t many available so definitely grab one while you can.
If it’s sold out before you get to it, you can still grab one in a different color. It might not look like the NES Classic, but it’s the same as the retro-styled version.
