    Retroid Pocket 2+

    5x faster then the RP2, and with a touchscreen!

    What's the catch?

    Well you can't actually buy a RP2+. Instead it's an upgrade for the RP2. You get a new PCB, open up the handheld and swap the old one over. You can also opt to replace the screen with a touchscreen too.

    Is it worth it?

    We don't actually know the price of this upgrade yet, so depending on that it might be. But the Retroid Pocket 3 is in development, which will have a larger touchscreen and be faster. So it will depend on if you can wait, or if you just want to make your existing RP2 even better.

    I'm tempted. But then the Ayn Odin is about to come out, so it might not be worth it.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    I can't really be bothered to click through, so tell me - is there a scheme for the old board after doing the upgrade, what do you do with that?

    I like the idea of trying to minimise e-waste even just a little bit.

    You get a display case for the old PCB, just in case you ever want to swap them back again. It would have been good if the company had taken back the old pcb for recycling, but being located in China that's not so practical.

    I just think it's so great the level of end user support these Chinese retro devices are now getting. When they first appeared it was a clear cashing in of illegal roms running on cheap hardware. That still very much the case of you look on ebay, especially the cheap all in one mini tv consoles with a couple of cheap controllers. But these handheld companies have now realised there is a proper market for quality products and after sales support make users keep buying their products.

    There is a much more powerful generation about to appear next year that should run Gamecube and Dreamcast well, and maybe even some PS2.
