The Retron 5 is an emulation console based off Retroarch that uses original consoles and
controllers. Some systems suffer from a lot of lag, but others are bearable. The Retrofreak might be a better option, as its essentially the same thing, but allows for direct
playing of roms from an SD card.
Since RetroN Labo's hacks are no longer being signed, you have to use an
alternate method. Please see the video to the right for reference:
When the Retron 5 was first released, I thought it was a neat toy...but I'm not sure I'd recommend
it anymore. Most hardcore retro-gamers most likely won't like it, as some of the systems have a bit
too much lag and it's not an exact re-creation of the original console (unlike an RGB-modded system with an
XRGB Mini). If you're looking to play a casual cartridge game, the Retrofreak might be a better option.
If you’re finished, I invite you to go back to the main page to see all the other retro-gaming awesomeness we have on this
site...especially the RGB guide!
