Old school gaming with retropie

I love old videogames, they take me back to my youth, when I spent countless afternoons playing with my friends. With my raspberry pi I’ve set up a retro-gaming station very easily by installing retropie, a raspbian distribution specifically geared to do this. This has cost me less than 2 hours and around €200

The components are:

  1. Raspberry pi 3 model b starter kit (€68)
  2. Heat dissipators (optional € 3,99)
  3. 7″ tft touchscreen (optional €71,95)
  4. Case to hold it all together (optional €19,90)
  5. 2 super nintendo-like gamepads (€18 each)
  6. Retropi (free)
  7. Game roms (free)


Fun times! 😀
