Oh boy… Engadget you should be ashamed… You got some explaining to do. Today on Engadget, they suggested to readers to buy Bootleg Chinese Knockoff Retro Consoles. Not only is that scummy, but they’re saying it’s a great deal! Get it now for $50 on sale from $300 what a steal! What disgusting journalism here’s an exact quote from their site,
While it’s harder than ever to get your hands on an original old school gaming system,this Retro Entertainment Consolecomes with more than 600 pre-loaded games based on classics like Super Mario Bros, PacMan, and Tetris. It’s normally $300, but you canpick one up today for just $50, saving over 80 percent.
Even upon posting this more atrocious things come to light it seems Engadget is making money off the links it’s providing to these sellers of bootleg consoles. Just gross.
Get a real device from a trusted seller and sold by the actual company such as Nintendo. Better yet, buy a raspberry pi 3 and make your own for the same price as this garbage.
Polymega a new system boasting the ability to play all your retro classics from cart systems like snes and turbografx, along with cd systems like ps1 and turbocd. The big reveal was Sega Saturn though they had the internet going nuts, myself included. But upon further investigation it looks like the Polymega team has been busted faking the funk. While we were all excited about Saturn it seems the gameplay footage was from the Sega Rally arcade game according to @saturnmemories on Twitter.
Welp, color me impressed. This thing is beautiful, the price is perfect, it plays pc engine cd, and they used the Saturn as a selling point which was unusually cool. And the fact all the systems output in HD is lovely. As I stated before I want that pc engine controller.
