Forget Retro Rebuilds, Create your own mutli-system Retro Console for £60

With a revival of interest in older video games, a few old console companys have re-produced anniversary editions of their consoles. Sinclair has released the ZX Vega, and Nintendo released the adorable little NES Classic. Are you awaiting your favourite console to undergo their transformation? Well, why wait when you can build your own?

The low-cost IoT board Raspberry Pi is a powerful little board of delights, and a delight in this situation is that it’s capable of running games up to PlayStation 1. As a result, the board is a great candidate for building your own DIY Retro games console. All in all, a decent build of this console will only cost around £60, which is less than some of these rebuilds.

The guide is currently on-going. If you’re tempted by this and wish to give it a shot, check the link below!
