Retrode 2 Retro Gaming Adapter Brings SNES / Genesis Support to your PC for $85

As the story goes, the product shown above is the result of some three years of toiling, with the second iteration handling cartridges for Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo. In fact, there's a pair of ports on here, enabling one cart from each console to be loaded up and carried around. Users need only to find and install an emulator on their machine, plug a cartridge and / or an associated controller into the device and then connect the Retrode 2 to one's computer via USB. Once you've loaded a ROM into your emulator, configured your controller and canceled every appointment on your calendar for the next 48 hours... well, you're in for quite a weekend of retro gaming nirvana. Get it here for $84.99, with shipments expected to begin on January 23rd.

Nice that it has ports for the original controllers on it. Gives you the option of digging out your old aftermarket controllers that do some extra tricks.

But you don't need hardware to emulate a NES or Genesis anymore since there are free emulators available since the early 2000s.
