Retro Champ – Very DISAPPOINTED…

 

The Retro Champ tries to be the “Switch” for NES/Famicom cartridges, but sadly fails in many key areas. I wanna like it…but NOPE…

PROS

  • good size, feels well built
  • I like that there is a rechargeable battery
  • turns on and boots up very quick
  • Supports thousands of physical games

CONS

  • Screen is not crisp at all. Looks like 240p footage instead of upscaled 
  • D-pad is a little shallow and mushy
  • Has a death grip on your NES cartridge
  • Famicom cartridges are very tough to get out because they’re flush with the system. You need to either use that special tool to push them out or another NES cartridge which is kind of weird and bad design
  • colors washed out or overly saturated
  • Aspect ratio cuts off the right side in 4 x 3
  • Sound is off. Not emulated correctly

Why a Copy of Super Mario Bros on NES Sold for $100,150

Wow, this is my first ever attempt at making a video about “news” — not something I plan to do often AT ALL, but I thought this was actually kind of an interesting story where there’s more to it than meets the eye!

I had the day off, and somehow I managed to turn a video around in 24 hours. Definitely a personal record, but probably only applicable to news format type videos unfortunately…research makes everything else take a heck of a lot longer!
Anyways, there’s more stuff in the works but I hope you enjoy this!
