A gift for the gamer in your life

Hello all and welcome to another edition of Tech Thursday! Christmas is approaching quickly and whether your shopping for yourself or a loved one, the product we highlight today will bring a smile to anyone’s face. I’m a big gamer and like you, I want to play the old school video games when ever I want. Now, I know that you can jailbreak your iPhone or simply download them to your Android powered phone but it’s not enough. I can add a lot of games and emulators to my iPhone 4 but what if I want to play some Neo Geo games? What if I want all of them at my disposal? Every time a new firmware comes out for my phone it turns out that the video game emulator is no longer compatible. So what’s the solution? It’s annoying and something has got to give! Well, after a few searches on the net I found a gadget that is sure to satisfy all gamer fans.

Pictured within this post is the a320 Pocket Retro Game Emulator. To be completely honest I’m not sure when it actually surfaced but I saw it for the first time today so it’s new to me. When I saw it and what it can do I immediately began to drool. This handheld can load NES, SNES, GBA, Sega Genesis, and Neo Geo roms!  It looks pretty badass and with a 4GB Internal Memory you’ll be able to load many games. What’s even better is that you can add a mini SD card to add even more storage. This will come in handy when you begin adding ROM’s (games) that involve the Neo Geo. The specs are pretty good for this as well and for only $99 you can’t go wrong. I will include the rest of the specs that go along with this product as well as links to the main web site for ordering purposes and a web site where you can find free ROM’s. So if you’re looking for a gift for your gamer on the go, look no further than the a320 Pocket Retro Game Emulator.
