    Yet another Retro Gaming System has appeared on IndieGoGo, but this one is bit different in that it contains an CD/DVD Player to allow you to play your original Classic gaming discs, and also has optional adapter for 'original cartridges', instead of other Retro systems that purely just run emulators with SD Cards, this one contains extra hardware to allow 'original discs & cartridges' to play directly, and so far at press time they have raised 26% of their $50,000 goal and published an impressive list of features and specs. as listed below:

    Check it out on their official project page linked below, but as usual this system has come under fire by the LibRetro team for using the RetroArch system with an custom interface skin to handle their core emulation of various gaming consoles, but they make no mention of that on their project page, so think twice before backing it, and remember to support the true pioneers of retro classic gaming emulation the LibRetro team! :)

      They claim this in their 'FAQ' section:
      Hard to say, no pictures of the 'actual hardware' yet, but on their YouTube channel they have some demos of it working.

      They say they're not using the RPi....they didn't say they weren't using another similar device.

      I came up with the theory by simply googling the SoC they gave in the spec and comparing the I/O ports.

      Of course I could be wrong but so far it makes sense.

      I'd be surprised if this was fake, considering that this may be essentially just $20-30 of off the shelf parts in a custom case with some modified version of retroarch.

      In some ways I actually like the concept, although I would want something for my RPi, I'm surprised they didn't go a step further and include an internal HDD since that would require only a small amount of more effort in theory.

      Makes me wish I had a 3D printer now, I'd like to make a custom case for my RPi 3.
