The Retron 5 looks interesting. If they can nail emulation to a good standard then an all in one unit would be great for so many people. I don't have space for all of those consoles but would certainly like to play the games it supports.

With the new wave of consoles giving HDMI out and covering multi systems, has anyone started to use any.

With me I prefer the old versions of consoles, though the Retron 5 and its like are handy if you just want a spanking new console with the ability to play old games.

But then again I am an old console traditionalist...

I'm a proud user of the GB Boy Colour (Chinese hardware clone of the GBC). Everdrive GB compatible and DS quality backlight. What more could you ask for £20?

I'm tempted by the Retron 5, but then, I have all the consoles it emulates already.

I have something called the 'Sunny', which is a famiclone that looks like a PSOne. It is hilariously cheap and nasty. The controllers are made from a kind of plastic equivalent of an egg carton.
