APRIL FOOLS PEOPLE. The Retron 4 isn't even out let alone the 5.
Check the date on the article, three days before April 1st. Too early for an April fools joke.

I wondered about the Retron 4 thing too, until I remembered that the number isn't for the incarnation of the system, it is for the number of game system slot ports it supports. The Retron 3 has 3 and the Retron Duo has two.

It probably was the Retron 4 initially, but now that it supports Famicom and GBA on top of the previous NES, SNES, and Genesis, that is where the number 5 comes from.


Argh! As much as I love my Retron 3, I know I will have to get this when it comes out. I know it's not going to be as cheap as the Retron 3(under 60 dollars), but heres hoping that it is at most 100 dollars.
Didn't look to far into it. It was a very cynical day for me on the internet. I'm missing the Gameboy player disc for my Gamecube which sadly is it's only purpose. Hopefully then this comes out soon so I can get rid of it.
