NES, SNES, Megadrive console to launch at E3

All-in-one retro console set to launch next month

If your Megadrive game up the game years ago, your NES won't play no matter how hard you puff, and your Super NES has turned an embarrassing shade of curry-yellow, peripheral company Hyperkin has created a single machine that'll let you put all three into retirement.

The RetroN3 is their latest creation. It may look like one of those crappy Argos Tomy machines, but the three slots on the top fit NES, Super NES and Mega Drive carts in them, allowing you to play your collection on a single machine.

It comes with two wireless controllers - although they mimic the Mega Drive pad, which is an unfathomable MISTAKE - but it makes up for it with original controller ports for all three consoles so you can play with a proper (Super NES) pad.


If you absolutely refuse to re-purchase your entire retro collection via Wii's Virtual Console, this could be the way to go. It's expected to launch at E3, and will cost around $70 (£48).

Although, to be honest, all you need is Super Mario Kart. Nothing else.
