Gamers looking to put their old SNES and Sega Genesis cartridges to good use will love the Retrode. The product is an adapter that lets you play your old Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis games on your computer using the game's original cartridges and controllers.

The Retrode works using an emulator program that is not included and must be downloaded online. While this is the one downside, one of the many upsides to this gadget is that you can use your original controllers with it. There are many places online where you can play old SNES and Sega Genesis games for free provided you don't want to use the correct controllers or original cartridges. The Retrode is available for pre-order now and is priced at $84.99. Stats for Vintage Gaming Adapters Trending: Older & Mild
