Throw in N64, 32X and maybe Atari 2600 & TurboGrafx-16 and I'm in. I also wonder if the Super Game Boy and Power Base Converter work on it (as well as a few other add-ons like the Famicom Disk System) and if GameBoy Advance compatibility includes GameBoy & GameBoy Color.
But wait, the GameBoy Advance is officially a retro console now?

Well, it's two generations old and I'm the only one I know who still plays it.

I guess they decided to skip 4 and go straight to 5?

It looks very promising. Sadly I am more excited about this than the PS4 announcement.

wow, nice marketing campaign. I can hardly believe it.
If they do pull it off, they will sell many systems.
I hope they do and outsell current game consoles.
I for one would like to see Sega Master System support with FM sound.
That and I should be able to play with my USB Saturn joypad.
So uhm, can it play like romz? :?

Again, it might be able to through the Power Base Converter.
I assume to play ROMs you'd use flash carts (if they work ;) ).
