    Edit: Pokemon Rogue isn't a gameboy game

    I feel like the company making this is prioritizing nostalgia over functionality and comfort. Making the LR buttons pseudo XY buttons is just a bad move in my mind. Especially when tons of fan handhelds have already shown that the original GB form factor can be given LR bumpers easily by adding smooth buttons to the back of the case. It's just silly to keep it like this, in my opinion. Aside from the button placement though, I still kinda don't get the point of this. If it was smaller or like a new, more comfortable form factor, sure, I'd understand, but they are trying to mimic the exact look and feel of the original GB, with the functions of a GBA and some mods essentially...

    You mean patents and they can not do anything. Tech patents on game console/handhelds expire after 10 years.

    LOL. You're better off making a DIY raspberry pi console. Play more games thru emulators while learning how to use an rPi. hehe.
    Then again, if you're just sucker for these type of things. Then, nothing will probably stop people from getting it. I agree with most of you here, that button L-R is in the wrong place. Love the retro Gameboy look though.

    Thought this was official but seeing as it is not, nothing of value to see here.

    Emulators still more superior.

    These typically use emulators, it's just the ones Retro Bit use are horrible XD

    Judging from the Retro Bit Generations console, the Game Boy emulation is spot on, games sound and look fine, but Snes and arcade (CPS1) seem way off in the audio department, some games have missing sound channels, etc. Personally a Cyber Gadget Retro Freak would fair much better IMO.

    Why do this when there are consoles with spot-on game boy/gba emulation available? The 3ds, and even as far back as the PSP can emulate gb/a/c PERFECTLY!

    Cheaper than getting a 3DS and PSP/Vita would be the big factor for many. Not to mention having to set everything up when this has it ready from the get go; that and not everyone wants to hack their 3DS :P

    True, but i'm actually planning on getting a psp soon as an emulation device, since i bricked my 2ds and really dont want to get something like this, cuz 3ds/psp can also play their own games as well as emulators.

    I have an ags-101 and the ghosting is pretty bad. I have a micro as well and my eyesight sucks so it's just too small for me. This might be cool.

    That said, if it isn't in the native resolution, I'm looking at you K101+, then I'm gonna have to pass.

    That's exactly what I was thinking!
    *sigh* Yeah, for that price an SP doesn't sound too bad. For classic GB/C games I will always have my AK2i and DSi 1.4.4. As for GBA, well, guess my PC will do for now. I heard of some new project going on for DS, but am skeptical.
    Still, this is a cool idea. At least at first. What it needs in my opinion:
    -Flashcart, SD slot, or USB charger that doubles as internal storage access to boot after carts.
    -L and R moved to the back.
    -Maybe an option for HQ4X and similar filters would be cool.
    Only then I think would it be worth it. But that's my own opinion.

    no way to extend that period or renew it? so after 10 years everybody can replicate a GameCube or GameBoy?
