    I hate this, I’ve been very supportive, sharing and everything and now they took away AV Cable output, not everyone can afford an HDTV, this is not making it the only console you’ll ever need cause now I can’t get it

    • Max

      then retro trio is your friend

      • Eric Curto

        i already have that, but it doesnt play the Gameboy games and doesnt have the ability to save unless the Save battery works, its cool though i found out someone is buying it for me for the holidays, so all ill need is a HDTV Converter, plus someone might be giving me their HD TV as well, but this is still very poor on their part, since they are all like “We want EVERYONE to be able to play retro games” yet they are alienating those who can’t afford it, very hypicritical

    Im totally in agreement with Eric there and very bad form on Hyperkins part because Ive seriously wondered about this Myself.. But now it is sadly confirmed beyond the rumors Ive been hearing from what Ive read and recently things have changed for the
    slightly worse in my opinion because of that particular
    completely dumb and unecessary Alteration / Change they made to the
    gaming System -Why in the
    flaming Hell have they decided to remove something as vitally important to many people
    as The AV. Output jacks from the Retron 5 ??????
