Don’t forget the Classic NES Edition, this $40 console can play NES game ever

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Nintendo decided to pull the plug on the wildly popular Classic NES Edition console (although you can still buy it on Amazon if you want). People were going crazy when they first discovered that the cool retro console was cancelled, but it turns out that they are a good thing. Why? Because it paved the way for the Hyperkin Retron 1 HD Gaming Console for the NES. This cute little console packs enough punch — while the Classic NES could only play a handful of games, the Retron 1 can play literally every NES game that ever existed. It is compatible with both NTSC and PAL cartridges, it costs only $39.99 on Amazon, and it is available for pre-order now. Don’t worry, the release is just two weeks away, so grab it while you can!
