The NES Classic Edition craze has already taken off, but even that console might not fully satisfy the most dedicated gamers. Now Doyodo Team, a company from Santa Monica is planning to roll out the RetroEngine Sigma — a mini console and media player that the company calls “a computer, 4K media center and the greatest retro-Station known to man.”
RetroEngine Sigma boasts that it simplifies the gaming experience. It’s easy to set up because of the plug-and-play feature with plenty of pre-installed games for anyone to enjoy. Additionally, the console has two USB ports for things like controllers, Bluetooth adapters, etc. You can also connect to Wi-Fi with a smartphone or tablet, allowing you to install the software you need to expand your selections. It’s basically built for you to install your favorite emulators:
In addition, our Plug’n Play installer gives you the choice to download, configure and install additional emulators from public sources and repositories, controlled by your smartphone or tablet. This is as easy as selecting the option during the initial setup of the system and will allow you to play thousands of additional ROM’s(**) that can be easily installed onto the system with a web-browser or by using the provided Micro SD adapter. Your smartphone will also be usable as a keyboard and even as an additional game controller.
What does it actually play? Consumers will be delighted to know that RetroEngine Sigma plays 28 different systems including Atari, Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Game Boy, PlayStation and more. It’s a crowd-funded project, so if it’s actually a go, consumers should expect the middle of 2017 to get theirs.
