The PocketGo S30 Handheld Looks Like An 8BitDo Controller

PocketGo S30 Retro Gaming Handheld

Hot off the press comes another handheld from the makers of the PocketGo series, the PocketGo S30.

BittBoy Handheld NES Emulator Review

The BittBoy manufacturer was kind enough to ask if I’d like a Bittboy free for review, and not being one to look a gift horse in the mouth I of course graciously accepted. Now I know that there are swarms of these little NES machines all over the internet, and if they’d been offering something …

BittBoy’s Cute Little Homage To The Game Boy

Little handhelds like┬áthis are a dime a dozen, but it’s not often they look quite as adorable as this thing. The BittBoy is obviously a homage to the original Nintendo Game Boy in design, but instead of taking carts it comes pre-loaded with 300 NES/Famicom Games to work your way through. It contains a 500mAh …
