“A brand new handheld console with unique multi-game retro cartridges from leading games publishers and console platforms”
Q. Will you have major publishers on board?
A. Yes – we already have several publishers on board. We will be announcing 3 this month – including one classic platform holder (with more to come).
Q. What software/emulation are you using?
A. Where possible, we are working directly with the original software/emulator developers to support them for their hard work and also to ensure their emulation is accurately reflected on our hardware – to deliver the best possible experience for you. We will aim to share more information on this as we reveal more about the console.
Q. What will the game selection be like?
A. Our focus has been quality and not quantity. While other retro platforms might be ‘boasting’ thousands of games, we have focused on signing major licenses – games which you will be excited to play (and own!). All killer – No filler.
Q. Do I need an internet connection?
A. No. Our system has been designed with ‘old school’ in mind. No school like old school. Everything you need is provided either on the console or the cartridges themselves. This guarantees no lag (and we all know how serious of an issue lag is for some of those classic retro games! milliseconds count!). No ‘loss of connection’. No setup. No signal black-spots. Play anywhere – anytime.
Q. Why did you develop this?
A. We’re retro gamers. We’re a team of passionate gamers who want to create a single platform for retro gamers to enjoy their favourite games. We haven’t developed this because we ‘saw a gap in a market’. This is a project being developed with passion.
Q. When will it be available?
A. 2019. We will announce our launch time frame this month!
Q. How will it connect to a TV?
Q. Will I be able to save my progress?
A. Yes! Most games will be able to take advantage of ‘save states’ – snapshots of exactly where you are in the game at any point – and then load instantly!
Q. Can I add my own games?
A. We want to create the ultimate retro gaming experience. To do this, we need to work with major license holders and we have to protect their IP. However, we are also considering a publicly available development cartridge with SD card access, for development and testing purposes.
Q. How big is the screen?
4.3″ – (same as the PSP for reference)
Q. Will I be able to change the screen ratio?
A. Yes – there will be a range of options to select from
Q. How is it powered?
USB re-chargeable battery – with 4-5 hours of solid game play on the battery alone. You can also play and charge if you want to play for as long as you can stay awake!
Q. What generation games will you support?
A. Our console will play games from the most popular consoles of the 8bit and 16bit era
Q. Can I use headphones?
A. Yes, the console has stereo speakers as well as a 3.5mm (take that, Apple!) headphone slot
