By | News | No Comments

I really dig emulators so this is next level.

Retro Champ is My Arcade’s latest foray into classic gaming. Previously, it released a system that allowed users to play both SNES and Sega Genesis cartridges on one device. This new handheld is compatible with HD TVs, wireless controllers, and includes a built-in screen and cartridge cleaning kit. It comes with a rechargeable battery that lasts around three to five hours on a single charge.

” Solid State Logic (SSL) is best known in the audio realm for its huge professional consoles that cost tens of thousands of dollars. But the iconic British company is now hoping to break into home studios for the first time. Ahead of NAMM, it’s debuting two affordable audio interfaces for bedroom producers called the SSL 2 and SSL 2+.”

Razer announces another mobile gamepad, but for Android and iOS

By | News | No Comments

The GameVice for iOS is very neat. The only problem is that my favorite games don’t support MFi controllers (I’m looking at you, FIFA).

The new gamepad is called the Razer Kishi, and it works with more devices than the Junglecat by attaching to the sides of your phone and connecting directly to it with either a USB-C or Apple Lightning connector, depending on the Kishi model specific to your phone. Plugging directly into your phone means the controller should, in theory, have very low latency, and, if you’re on Android, it should work with cloud gaming services like xCloud or Stadia. (If either of those services come to iOS, it seems possible that iPhone users could use Kishi for cloud gaming as well.)
