As technology pushes on, retro gamers are more than happy to stay put with their beloved consoles and classics of yesteryear. While this is all well and good, televisions today are anything but friendly with these older platforms, often presenting our favourites in a sea of smudgy visuals. In an attempt to remedy this issue, a retro gaming manufacturer has begun work on a HDMI out board for the Nintendo 64.
Retroactive, who are more commonly known for their CompactFlash ready Nintendo 64 flash cartridge, are the brains behind this promising new hardware. The Nintendo 64 HDMI Converter will upscale the console's video output to a more suitable format for modern LCD televisions and monitors.
As fantastic as this project is, it does come with two slight frustrations. The first of these is that the Nintendo 64 HDMI Converter is not yet available, although Retroactive have created a mailing list for those wanting to get further updates. The second of these is that this new hardware is anything but plug-n-play - a lot of patience and careful soldering will be required.
The Nintendo 64 HDMI Converter is expected to be available sometime this quarter, although no price tag has been set as of yet.
