[The Source] Retro gaming sale

I am a retro fan, so when I saw this, wanted to share it with everyone here :).

Don't know if there is anything special with the prices, but you still can get the good life fitness discount, and the 25$ of 100$ coupon.

Pretty good price for the Retron 2. I'm suggest, to anyone interested, passing on the Retron 5. It's emulated and laggy.

It's laggy garbage. You'd be better off with a Pi or a crappy PC with an HDMI out. The Retron 2, however, is pretty good for what it is and because it's not emulating software it works perfectly (and looks great) on a CRT.

Edit: If you grabbed a CRT with component off Kijiji for like 10 bucks this is probably the best emulation device to get:

the retron 5 worked pretty well when I had it, mine broke though. now im left with a ton of super famicom games that I cant get rid of. I got the japanese games because they were way cheaper and you generally dont need english to play the platformers like megaman.

kijiji has gone mad with prices lately, it was bad a while ago now its insane.
think first, buy later.
