OK, I'm not really big on the emulation scene (I mostly play PC games and most of the ones I play don't need emulation...), but this enclosure for a Pi 0 with screen and buttons ...
This is adorable.
I don't have a use for it, but I want one.
Apparently there's a company selling an SD card preloaded with RetroPie and "8000+ Retro Games" but the art in the single image they have to promote their product makes me dubious they have the legal rights to distribute this content.
I mean, RetroPie is open source, that's fine, but a lot of the games in the cover art are licensed IPs, some of which are now owned by Disney.
I have my doubts as to the legality here.
@Crash Yeah it's probably like those Roku knockoff sticks that have a built in set of piracy streams
@phil Oh, certainly, but that's nostalgia for you. I love the aesthetic but not the practicality.
Heck, I spent hours on end back in the day playing with a Merlin.
If I had one now would I use it for more than 5 minutes? No, it would kill my fingers. Do I still think fondly of when I had one? Of course.
