Hyperkin Retron 77 Redesign

Hyperkin Retron 77 Redesign by Dave Delisle

Last year Hyperkin unveiled their Retron 77, an Atari clone system with HDMI output. It has a similar look to their recent Retron 1 HD and Supa Retron HD systems. The company makes good-looking clone systems so I’m a big fan of theirs.

Atari TV Design

Another 4:3 gaming TV design, this one Atari-themed. I thought about designing TV’s with consoles built-in, but then I remembered those awful TV/VCR (or DVD) combos from over a decade ago, so for now I think it’s best to just stick to vanilla TVs that require separate consoles.

Atari Flashback Redesign

AtGames will be releasing their 8th Atari Flashback this fall (the first for HD displays), and judging by early reviews it’s a very good system at a great price. That’s the good news, the bad news is these Atari’s are kinda ugly! The big buttons on the console look as though Playskool or Fisher Price designed an Atari for toddlers, that’s the nicest way I can describe it.
