With a new generation of game consoles on the horizon, people have had backwards compatibility on the mind. For those who want to play old games without keeping old consoles around, there's the Hyperkin Retron 3, which can play NES, SNES and Sega Genesis carts all in a single unit.
This week, Hyperkin announced its newest console, the Retron 4, which is even more ambitious than the Retron 3 (pictured above). It will add Game Boy Advance compatibility to the mix, as well as HDMI output.
From the Retron 4 press release
RetroN 4 Points of Interest: · 2 Original Controller Ports for Each Platform (6 Total) · Wireless Bluetooth Controller · 4 Cartridge Ports for NES, SNES, Genesis and GBA cartridges · HDMI Output with Digital Signal Conversion · "Perdana" Digital User Interface · PAL and NTSC compatible
Nice. Given that the image up top is of the Retron 3, it's still not clear what the Retron 4 will look like. Maybe something less candy-coloured? Though, hell, this thing could be bright green and orange, and I'd still want one. Hyperkin says it will announce more details about the Retron 4 at the Midwest Gaming Classic in March.
