Have been building my Raspberry Pi 3 with latest RetroPie distro, it’s really awesome!
Pi 3 now comes with bluetooth, wifi, 1.2ghz quad core cpu and a 1gb of ram, which for £30GBP is stupidly good value for money!
Great news is that the higher end emulation in RetroPie is now working well in most cases, with the SpecialFX SNES games running properly and most N64 games now working full speed after a little bit of tinkering! Dreamcast games are pushing things a bit too far, Raspberry Pi4 maybe for those! Anything else though is nigh on perfect!
So far I have the following running well: Atari 2600, 5400, 7800, Commodore C64 & Amiga, Apple 2, Sega SG1000, Game Gear, Master System, Megadrive, Dreamcast (but a little slow), Nintendo NES, SNES, GBA & N64, MAME 0.375b, Neo-GEO and PC Engine 🙂
Has to be said that RetroPie is a gift from the heavens, of course you can always play emulators on your PC, but RP just seems better and is so well produced now and has a super-slick frontend.
It’s now really simple to get into, back in the mk1 Pi days it was a lot of hard work, now its noob friendly stuff, so anyone can have fun regardless more of less of skill level.
