Hyperkin brings together NES, SNES, Sega Genesis consoles

RetroN 3 contains NES, SNES, Genesis consoles

Hyperkin is offering a unique RetroN 3 gaming console that is effectively three legacy game consoles in one. It has three cartridge slots and three pairs of controller inputs for the original mass-market gaming console, the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), its replacement the Super NES and its competitor, the Sega Genesis. Hyperkin also includes two proprietary wireless controllers that are compatible with each gaming system's titles.

ROMs are not supported, so those into retro gaming will need to use the original cartridges. As the games themselves only work with analog resolutions, AV connections are limited to S-video and RCA outputs. The RetroN 3 console is now available in red or black for $70. [via OhGizmo]
