RetroUSB Announce ‘AVS’ Nintendo NES HDMI Ready Clone Console Due For Summer Release

RetroUSB-AVS-Nintendo-NES-HDMI-Clone-ConsoleWith the constant arrival of new hardware for classic systems, it was only a matter of time before someone built the ultimate solution to enjoying Nintendo NES games three decades after its initial release. RetroUSB recently revealed on Facebook their upcoming AVS console, a spiritual revision of Nintendo’s 8-bit system with built in HDMI out and countless other features too.

Packed with both a Nintendo NES and Famicom cartridge slot, built in Game Genie support, four control pad ports, and of course the aforementioned HDMI output, the AVS is pretty much a love letter to the timeless 8-bit platform. Offering support for games from all regions and the Famicom Disk System too, the AVS aims to quash the low quality tag that ‘Famiclones’ are often branded with by becoming the ultimate clone system.

RetroUSB are hoping to release the AVS this summer, however, an exact date is yet to be known. The console is set to cost just $185 upon release, giving the other HDMI ready NES alternative the Analogue NT a run for its money. RetroUSB have also stated that a wireless bluetooth control will be made available for the AVS too, something which will also rival the Retro Receiver hardware.

Ah i've been watching this on the nintendoage forums for probably over a year and its really been shaping up to everything one could hope for, with 100% less bullshit than the retron 5 had, they've been upfront about its development from the inside out. Very likely will pick one of these up eventually.

Though i dunno what said about their wireless controller going to be Bluetooth is true, since the maker commented on the retro receiver saying that their's will be better specifically because Bluetooth isn't very good for lag.
