The "console" shaped like a classic NES would come preloaded with 30 titles from the olden days, like Legend of Zelda and Super Mario Bros 3, and include modern connection ports so you can hook it up to your TV and relive your youthful gaming days. Retro-Bit, who has been putting out emulation consoles that let you play your old cartridges, has recently announced a similar product, the Retro-Bit Generations.

Retrobooster Gets an Update, On Sale Now

You may remember a little indie title we've talked about here before called Retrobooster.
