It is my sad duty to announce that the Retron 5, the 5 in 1 retro gaming system, has been delayed until the first quarter of 2014. Hyperkin, the company behind the system, stated that they discovered faulty pins in some units and this delay will help them fix the problem so that gamers will have the maximum user experience from day 1.
“We apologize for the inconvenience,” said Hyperkin’s Project Manager Lawrence Lee . “Hyperkin would like to thank you for all the support you have given us throughout the development of the RetroN 5. We are looking forward to its release, estimated to be within the first quarter of 2014, as soon as the issue has been resolved.”
While it does sucks that the Retron 5 got delayed I’d rather have a console working right out of the box instead of catching on fire *cough* Xbox One *cough*. Lets end this on a bright note and watch a vieod of Zelda: A Link to the Past GBA being played in the Retron 5, with and with out the filters on.
