Oh yes. This little mofo may look like one of the doohickeys Doc Brown has in his DeLorean (or a space age waffle iron), but it's actually a chunky-ass retro console. In fact, it's so damn much of a chunky-ass retro console that it's almost eleven of them.
The RetroN 5 is brought to us by Hyperkin, and arrives June 6. It supports games for the NES and SNES, their Japanese brothers the Famicom and Super Famicom, the Genesis/Mega Drive, Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance. You can also, by softly thrusting an accessory into its USB slot, make it compatible with Master System titles.
That last sentence took an oddly horny twist. But anywho, let's move on.
In this brave new world of shady shenanigans with emulators, many of us would see no darn need for this beast. Nevertheless, there's still a market among retro heads and general old dudes. After all, some of us will always love the sensation of blowing on those big ol' cartridges to make the bastards work.
As Destructoid reports, the RetroN 5 will be priced at $140, but may be sold out preorder-ily at present. If you need one of these sexy metallic mofos in your life, stay tuned. You can ogle it in action at the official site.
