The Retro Duo - Better than Ever
We are all formiliar with Nintendo's gaming systems. It was, in fact, the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) that brought the world back to in home gaming. All of the modern gaming consoles owe a lot of their success to Nintendo's innovation and efforts in making this idea of gaming popular. People had thought in home gaming was dead, just before the release of NES; little did they know that it had just begun. The NES brought us into a world of gaming that we had never experienced before. With such hits as Super Mario Bros. and Donkey Kong, Nintendo secured it's place as in the gaming history legends.
They continued their incredible success with the next generations most successful console; the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). The SNES really hit the ball out of the park. This console was phenomenal success, even lasting well into the 32bit console era. Nintendo's Super Mario World still remains one of the most well known games. People from around the world have enjoyed this game for nearly 20 years! None of these classic games or consoles are produced anymore, however. That means that these old consoles can be very pricey, despite the age of them. Is all hope lost for reliving these nostalgic classics?
It would have been, had it not been the desire to keep them alive from popular gaming companies. One of these companies released a console that has a cartridge slot for both the NES and SNES. This console is the Retro Duo 3.0. The Retro Duo is a console that allows you to play most of your old favorites on one brand new system. The sleek and slim design saves you space, while specially placed air vents ensure that your trip down memory lane is one way. No overheating from this system. It also works with most NES and SNES games including imports from Japan, and will accept all 16-bit controllers.
Through the testing of the Retro Duo, we have come to find no real problems. The system worked right out of the box, with no abuse or blowing on the old cartridges. It just simply worked. Some have reported that the colors and sound quality are comparable to the original system. All around, we have concluded, at the incredible price of 49.99, the Retro Duo 3.0 is well worth the money. But is there really any price to pay to travel back in time?
