The first is the Retron 3, a system that plays NES, SNES, and Sega Genesis games. It comes with ports for console specific controllers, or you can use the wireless controllers that come with it.  Below are some videos that review this nifty piece of hardware that will let you relive the early years of the home console resurgence.

Wrestling flashback – The Road Warriors
