Retron 5 Console

Clean up your entertainment center by retiring your current collection of classic gaming machines for the Retron 5 Console ($100). This crazy box will offer support for the NES, SNES, Sega Genesis, Famicom, and Game Boy Advance — and thus likely the original Game Boy and Game Boy color as well. It will offer two controller ports for each system, although we're not 100% sure you'll need them given that it ships with a universal Bluetooth controller, and also outputs upscaled video and improved audio at 720p over HDMI. With any luck, it'll be hitting virtual shelves in July.

  • Nvidia Project Shield

    Not satisfied with the killer Android tablets and phones companies were building with its Tegra 3 processor, gaming chip shop Nvidia decided to make their own showcase for their next chip. The Nvidia Project Shield ($TBA) is a new Android-based portable gaming platform powered by the company's new quad-core Tegra 4 chip. Thanks to a 72-core GPU, it's capable of producing stunning graphics to display on the integrated 5-inch, 720p touchscreen display, and it's also got a real gaming controller attached, with a custom tuned port audio system. The icing on the cake? The ability to stream games from a PC powered by a GeForce GTX GPU.

  • GameStick

    The new Wii's already in stores, and a new Xbox and Playstation can't be far behind — but if you think those are your only TV gaming options, you're missing out. The GameStick ($80) is the latest independent, Android-based console to hit Kickstarter. Powered by an Jelly Bean, this unique system consists of a dongle that draws all its power over HDMI and a sleek Bluetooth 4.0 controller with dual analog sticks. As far as specs go, you'll find 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, and 802.11n Wi-Fi for downloading new content. Want to take the action with you on the road? Just unplug the dongle and slide it into the dedicated slot inside the controller.
