As retro gamers we're incredibly lucky at the wealth of available hardware we can use to get our classic gaming fix. With modern consoles and smartphones providing access to our gaming past, we're never too far away from the classics. The latest newcomer capable of feeding our retro addiction is the 7" Archos GamePad.
The Archos GamePad is the newest Android device to come with a built in D-pad and dual analog sticks for the sole purpose of gaming. Whilst the device is being aimed at modern gamers, the RetroCollect Squad have other plans for this rather impressive looking handheld. What might these plans be you ask? Well, take a look at our expansive guide to retro gaming emulators on Android devices and you'll see.
Given the high-end Sony PlayStation 1 and Nintendo 64 emulators work fantastically even on last year's Android enabled devices, we're very much anticipating how well they'll run on this dual core device. As for just about every other older system, we expect nothing but near perfect retro gaming emulation on the Archos GamePad. Hopefully our predictions will be met upon release next month.
