For those of you who haven’t seen my Tweets, Blaze Europe have now (from Wed 14th) started allowing pre-orders of their newest handheld – the GameGadget.
To recap on a previous post, the GameGadget is being touted as ‘the iPod for RetroGames’ and allows you to download and install your favourite games of old via a website download service called GameGadgetGames sort of like iTunes works with an iPod and music.
- A dedicated retro gaming console – all in one device
- Supported by an ‘iTunes’ style software application
- Licensed retro games for quick & affordable download
- Download new content and manage your existing content
- An ever expanding back catalogue – potentially over 100,000 games!
- Easily expand your collection using an option SD card
- Free software updates/upgrades
- Cloud based user accounts – easily restore your collection of games should you have any problems
Watch the early visualisation trailer below and make up your own mind, we are excited to see this unit in action and will be getting one for review soon so watch this space… or if you can’t wait, go pre-order one at www.gamegadget.net
EDIT: We were never actually sent a review unit, even though we were promised one. Sorry folks.
