Gamers have you been dreaming of a console that lets you relive some of your favorite classic games in one? Well the Retro 3 allows you to do so. You can take a trip down memory lane to your childhood with this console. Allow me to tell you a little about it.
Now we all love classic consoles we had when we were kids, but having all those just takes up too much space. This little space saving console allows you to play games from the original Nintendo, the Super Nintendo, and the Sega Genesis.
Now you’re probably wondering where in the world can I would buy this? It is very simple actually.
Ebay and Amazon both offer the Retro 3 for around $69.99 with free shipping. Your console will
come ready to play which will include of coarse the console, 2 wireless controllers, S-video, and AC adaptors. Even though the console comes with 2 wireless controllers, you still have the option to use original controllers, but don’t worry about the cords not being long enough because you can purchase cord extensions.
You gamers may already have some games you’ve kept from your youth, but if you are wanting to purchase more or start a new collection, then games will run you anywhere from $2-3 dollars on the low end and up to $70-80 for the more collectible ones. It really depends on the condition, contents and what game you’re wanting to revisit.
It seems like everything good in life comes with a catch, and this is no different. There are several games that the Retro 3 console is not compatible with,but only with the NES and SNES. I’ve yet to find a Sega Genesis game that’s not compatible. I’ll be kind enough to give a list of a few games that aren’t compatible.
NES: After Burner, Athletic World, Bandit Kings of Ancient China, Battletoads,
Captain Planet and the Planeteers, Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, Cheetahmen
II, Challenge of the Dragon, Crystal Mines, DuckTales, Dragon Warrior 2, Dirty
Harry: The War against Drugs, Gauntlet, Gemfire, Laser Invasion, Mad Max,
Paperboy, Pipe Mania, Rad Racer II, Short Order Eggsplode!, Stadium Events,
Stack-Up, Street Cop, The Krion Conquest, The Last Starfighter, Uncharted
Waters, and World Class Track Meet.

III, Front Mission: Gun Hazard, Kirby’s Dream Land 3, Kirby Super Star, Super Mario RPG, Super Scope 6,
Street Fighter Alpha 2, Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, Star Ocean, and Winter Gold.
Even though the Retro 3 is not compatible with every single game, there’s still a large amount of games you can play. This is an excellent console to have in your collection. What are your thoughts? Do you own one or would you purchase it? Any other games you may know of that isn’t compatible? Leave your comments gamers.
