Hyperkin Retron 5 to Release December 10th for $99

Hyperkin announced today that their Retron 5 combination system, bringing together compatability with Nintendo’s NES, Famicom, SNES, Super Famicom, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance, as well as Sega’s Master System, Genesis, and Mega Drive will descend upon the public in all its retro-gaming glory on December 10th, boasting a price tag of $99 – a steal for vintage-gaming enthusiasts who’ve still got their collections of old cartridges lying around.

I’m intrigued, and might look at picking one up, though probably not at launch. I may not have my old games lying around, but piles of older games are available for extreme values on eBay and the like, and this is an awesome way to be able to show my kids the, um, glory of the games on which I grew up – and see if they’re up to the challenge of gaming as it was in the time of their rapidly-aging dad.
