Why buy a vintage and retro video game console?

Before it was the battle to launch a game with a scart cable adapter for the Mega drive on CRT television.

Currently this is no longer the case and it is made easier thanks to the HDMI input so even if you have a 4K TV it will be possible to play on the retro console! Evenings with family or friends with Metal Slug in multiplayer mode or alone to play a game of Metal Gear with the playstation Classic. Then if you have an original console, the old model, why not opt ​​for a series of video games that are not yet part of your trophy from your collection? Otakute offers you the possibility of acquiring Famicom cartridges such as Metroid Fusion or Sonic and a wide choice of game cartridges for different consoles in our store. An old game such as Super Ghoul'n ghost is much more addictive than the new games with an open world where you get bored very quickly such as assassin's creed Black flag for example or even Modern Warfare style Fps or Rainbow six. .

If you are a true geek or a geek, you too have worn out your controllers on Street Fighter 2 on the Super Famicom. If you liked the fabulous adventures of Super Mario, you will understand the difficulty of the Zelda game. On the other hand, the backup system of the original console where you prayed that there would be no power outage and the fact of memorizing the dungeon map by drawing it on paper at the time.
