While the idea has great elements like the FGPA to allow it to play a whole litany of systems with separate adapters (my guess is that the adapter would also have the circuitry to tell the system to change to whichever mode), there were just so many question marks involved in the project to really feel positive enough to fork over like $300 for it.
I mean, if you want something to play the old games, either use old hardware (and most of them are freaking tanks and don't break), or something like a Retron 5 (which is half the price) and a PC for the new indie games.
I get a lot of the sentiment behind the system, people don't like that new games need to get massive patches when they launch or they're a buggy mess, and old games have a great nostalgia to them, but yeah, the Retro VGS had serious issues. Also the controller for it is a freaking Wii/Wii U/Android thing that is apparently atrocious.
