RetroPie for Raspberry Pi

Recommended Posts

RetroPie turns your Raspberry Pi into an emulation powerhouse. If you have a Pi or want something to play older games on, this should definitely take care of that. There are even cases out there now to imitate a NES or SNES if you'd like on Amazon...


I am planning on doing this to my Pi 2 and then load the roms onto a thumb drive. Controller wise, I am not sure as I have not yet tried, but I'd imagine a console controller with bluetooth should work.

Some dude at my school built a RetroPie suitcase. He basically used foam to put in a nice LCD display and then ran controller cables out of the other half of the suitcase. I don't know how much power is drawn from the Pie and the display, but I'm pretty sure you could also put in a battery and wireless controllers and go completely wireless. You would then have a fully portable game station with wireless controllers that you would only have to charge once a day depending on battery size which is pretty nutty.
