GameGadget aiming to be the 'iPod for retro games'

0

Due out March 30th, there's a new portable gaming device aiming to grab your hard earned cash. Calling itself the GameGadget, it's trying to become the "iPod of retro games" by providing legal and secure downloads of games users can purchase through an iTunes-esque application. The platform will not just offer classic titles, as it's also an opportunity for developers to put their newest creations on a dedicated handheld market. That seems a bit silly though, considering that iOS, Android, 3DS, and PS Vita all have established markets.

The GameGadget is up for pre-order at £99 (approximately $157). That's a fair price I'd say, but it's a bold move to launch a handheld when there are two giant handhelds already out, especially when that new device aims to sell games to users who played them twenty years ago. It'd be easier to just emulate on an already existing device. Maybe some truly creative developers will set up shop on the GameGadget marketplace to give it a bit more incentive for purchasing other than as a portable retro game player.
