This is it folks, the RG350 production units are finally available here and here. However you feel about that d-pad placement, there’s no denying that this device looks impressive – with many firsts for a device of its kind.

The RG350 should set a new standard in this niche. Gone are the days of blurry composite video, with a HDMI video output this thing should look pretty damn good on a modern TV. The addition of rumble motors is also very interesting, and with full dual analog complete with R3/L3 we have the flexibility to play a huge library of PS1 titles without compromising on inputs. It’ll be interesting to see how this device changes the niche going forward especially with the new Miyoo device and the RG350H on the horizon – there’s no shortage of competition driving manufacturers to keep improving.
The RG350 can be had from the Anbernic store on AliExpress for £78 right now, try both links if one is sold out as currently both colours are available at each.
They seem to be releasing these in dribs and drabs, 30 went up yesterday and it looks like another 30 have gone up today. I would expect that eventually the supply will be limitless (and perhaps at a lower price), but if you simply must have one now then fill your boots.
