Gameboy Super Retro Boy (Retrobit)
« on: January 07, 2017, 11:37:24 am »
The Super Retro Boy is a four-button handheld console that's compatible with Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance cartridges. That's it. No magic features, no built-in games (although it will come with a multi-game cartridge with unspecified titles), no internet connection, no TV-out. Just brightness and volume dials, a headphone jack and an on-off switch. Up front are four action buttons (A, B, L and R), start and select keys, and an "HD" display (resolution details weren't available, but it seemed sharper than my Game Boy Micro's). Inside is a rechargeable battery good for 10 hours.

The render and physical unit are so off. How does that happen? If they can't be bothered to get their own dimensions right I'm not getting my hopes up for proper aspect ratio or emulation accuracy.

Shoulder buttons are now face buttons. What the... Metroid Fusion will be basically impossible to play on this device. Good luck firing a missile diagonally, when you need to hold two of the face buttons and press a third one at the same time.

Complete form-over-function fail.

Yeah, that's exactly what I thought. GBA/GBA SP/GB(A) micro had L & R shoulder buttons for a reason.
