FPGA Arcade Replay Board Emulates Classic Arcade Game Hardware
While most of us are off playing with our fancy new toys, it’s sometimes nice to dust off a game of Frogger, Pac-Man or Space Invaders and get your retro game on. While there are certainly ways to play these games on your PC, Mac or Linux box by downloading MAME, it’s kind of cool to see a standalone device capable of playing classic arcade games.

Mini Altair 8800 Pc Kicks Its Grandaddy’S 8080 in the Ass(Embler)
If you go waaaaay back in the wayback machine to 1975, you might remember a little computer called the Altair 8800. Officially, it was the “world’s first personal computer,” running a speedy 8080 processor which could make the red lights on the front blink in and out of sequence among other things.

SNES Emulator Now on PS3, Psp Says Meh

SNES Emulator Now on PS3, Psp Says Meh
Ah, SNES emulation. It’s like a rite of passage for any jailbroken system powerful enough to run it. I’m sure that when the PS6 is hacked in 2040, people will still install an SNES emulator on it.

Headrest DVD Player Comes With NES, SNES Emulator: Your 25-Year Old Kids Will Love It
I don’t know a lot of kids, but I’m betting they’d prefer to play on the iPhone, Nintendo DS or PSP rather than the SNES or NES. If they even know what those two are. But I think there’s still a lot of us 80s kids that’ll find Chinavision’s all-in-one gadget a hoot.

Flashboy Plus Virtual Boy Emulator: Get One Now While Supplies Last
Seriously, get one now if you’re a fan of the Virtual Boy. That’s a big if, but today I found out that there is a healthy, enthusiastic and eager Virtual Boy-loving community, and they are stoked about Richard Hutchinson‘s update to his first Virtual Boy dev kit.

Gamepark Caanoo: New Linux Handheld Gaming System Gets Weird Name
The latest Linux-based portable gaming console from Gamepark Holdings (the same guys who created the GP2X Wiz) has the unfortunate name “Caanoo”, which is not only difficult to spell, I have no idea how to pronounce it.

Letcool Handheld Game Emulator Offers 2-Player Goodness in Your Pocket

Letcool Handheld Game Emulator Offers 2-Player Goodness in Your Pocket
The latest in handheld emulators, the Letcool N350JP tries to one-up other portables by adding on something they don’t offer – a pair of external controllers for two-player fun. The compact system comes with emulators for the Super Nintendo, NES, Sega Genesis, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance, but if it’s anything like the other portable emulators out there, you can bet there will be more emulators, and probably a Linux build for it at some point.

SNES + Genesis + NES + Portable = Snegenes P

Playable NES Console Built Into an NES Cartridge [Casemod]

Playable NES Console Built Into an NES Cartridge [Casemod]
The first time I saw an NES gaming system built into an NES cartridge, I thought it was pretty sweet. Until I saw this one, which totally outdoes the original. Inspired by an earlier NESp (Ninendo Entertainment System portable) mod by darkeru, modder airz managed to put a completely playable game system, including a 2.8-inch LCD screen and original NES controller buttons into an old Super Mario Bros./Duck

Pxp-2000 Psp Go Clone is No Go

Pxp-2000 Psp Go Clone is No Go
Nope, this portable gaming system is most definitely not a PSP Go. What you’re looking at here is a cheap Chinese handheld known as the PXP-2000. While the PXP-2000 won’t play any of your PSP games, it will play classic games from the NES, Famicom, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Super Famicom/SNES, and SEGA Megadrive/Genesis consoles.

This odd little handheld gaming system may look a heckuva lot like a Nintendo Game Boy Advance, but it’s actually one of those multi-system emulators that can play games from a variety of retro consoles. The mysteriously named SP2 handheld can play games from the original NES, Super Nintendo, Game Boy Color, Neo Geo and yes, the Game Boy Advance.

E-Time Controller Plays Sega Genesis/Mega Drive Game Roms
There are plenty of cheap plug-and-play SEGA retro gaming systems out there, but this is the first one I’ve seen that lets you load up your own ROMs and play them on your TV. The E-Time Game Play Controller ($22 USD) may look like a standalone game controller, but it’s actually a self-contained SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis console.
