** If the failings of the RetroVGS campaign left you wanting more than its recently announced rebranding with Coleco, then look no further. A true retro gaming console focused on the games we know and love has been revealed through Kickstarter. The IndieGO is an all-in-one solution for enjoying the classics on the big screen through emulation.
Powered via either a Raspberry Pi or Odroid, the IndieGO console is hoping to provide a platform for playing games upto the PlayStation 1 era and below at full speed. Armed with a CD-Rom drive and SD card reader, the system is set to not only provide an easy way to load ROMs, but also a way to play games from their original discs - such as the PlayStation 1, Mega CD, Amiga CD32, and other platforms too.
On top of that too, those of you interested in classic PC gaming will be pleased to know that the IndieGO comes with Wine pre-installed to allow the booting of older operating systems such as Windows 95/98 for those early computer classics. Furthermore, the system can be used as a media centre too through KODI, along with offering the ability to stream your high-end PC games via Moonlight.
Needless to say there’s quite a lot on offer with the IndieGO console, and luckily enough for us they’re not seeking too much on Kickstarter either. With the target of just €7,500 nearly close, those interested can look at a wide variety of options available for the system, starting at €149 for a Raspberry Pi 2 powered system, or from €179 for an Odroid one instead. **
