Portable NES machine plays actual cartridges

by Doug Aamoth on May 13, 2009


Portable 8-bit gaming sort of hits the mainstream with now selling the $50 Retro Mini Handheld NES System. Unlike those far more convenient, yet far less legal portable emulation machines that you have to purchase from far away lands, this handheld ships right from the U.S. of A. and plays actual NES cartridges.

The system takes 4 AA batteries and supposedly runs for over eight hours. There’s also a built-in 2.4-inch LCD screen, speakers, and composite video output to your TV for some true nostalgia. You’ll need to go up into the attic and find that box of NES games while this thing’s in transit to you but once everything’s in place, get ready for some good old cartridge-blowing, button-mashing fun.
