Retro-Fitted Gaming Consoles

This USB Gaming Console Brings Modern Conveniences to Retro Gaming

— September 13, 2016 — Tech
The RetroUSB AVS is a wonderfully engineered and designed USB gaming console that is designed to function as an unofficial modernized Nintendo Entertainment System.

Although the RetroUSB AVS plays old-school Nintendo games, it offers such modern conveniences as HDMI connectivity, a compact USB connection and a streamlined retro gaming experience. The design means the contraption doesn't even need to be used in conjunction with a power bar.

What's great about this particular USB gaming console is the fact that it plays the old-school games that many older millennials will fondly remember from their childhood gaming adventures, but also offers them the modern tech features that they've grown accustomed to, allowing them to enjoy a retro gaming experience with modern convenience.
Trend Themes
1. Retro Gaming Resurgence - The demand for retro gaming experiences is inspiring innovation in gaming hardware that can recreate the past experience while incorporating modern conveniences such as HDMI connectivity.
2. Hybridized Gaming Consoles - Game consoles that merge past and present experiences by playing old-school games with modern tech features offer niche opportunities for innovation.
3. Sustainable Gaming Hardware - Retrofitting outdated gaming hardware with modern tech components can prolong their use, promoting eco-friendly practices within the gaming industry.
Industry Implications
1. Gaming - Incorporating modern tech conveniences with retro gaming hardware can appeal to gaming enthusiasts who want to relive nostalgic experiences with improved features.
2. Consumer Electronics - Innovative USB gaming consoles that reproduce retro gaming experiences with modern features can create disruptive opportunities for small consumer electronics companies.
3. Sustainability - Retrofitting outdated electronics with modern components can create a bridge between the past and present while serving as a green contribution to the sustainable practices movement.
