On the NES side, there is composite video and dual mono output (s-video doesn't work on NES). For Genesis and SNES, there is composite video, s-video, and stereo audio output. Composite video on NES is ok, but it's very dark for Genesis and SNES. It's not really a problem since it's better to use s-video for Genesis and SNES anyways. Compared to composite, s-video output is very sharp and bright. Even the standard Genesis systems don't feature s-video output, so this is a very nice feature of the Retron 3. Since the NES side doesn't work with s-video, it is a bit annoying to have to plug and unplug the s-video cable to play NES games.
The Genesis sound is a little inaccurate. I noticed in Sagaia that the sound effects are louder than the music and a bit of the soundtrack is off key. Also, there is a little buzzing noise on NES and Genesis games. I can live with it. At least it doesn't sound totally butchered up like the Atgames Genesis clones. Most of my other games don't sound too different than on a model 1 Genesis. SNES sound is perfect. I don't know how accurate the NES sound is since I never owned one.
The packed-in wireless controllers are only good for NES games. For Genesis, not only are the A/B buttons swapped, but so are the X/Y buttons. Sometimes I forgot and pressed the wrong buttons.Read more ›
The Retron 3 can't play every game for these systems, there are a (very)few nintendo and at least 2 sega games that use special chips who's patents are still owned by their respective companies, and they won't play on this and if you're interested in a full list, it's an easy enough find on google. When you get past that what you have is an unbelievable machine. The S-Video output these things come with, for those of you unaware, is outdated by todays standards but is the distant future of 20XX compared to the technology the old consoles used - it makes genesis and snes games look absolutely unbelievable. The colors are better, lightening is balanced and perfect and everything is 3 times sharper; the only downside is that s-video won't work on NES games - this isn't the developers being lazy, s-video and 480p was stuff nasa probably wasn't using when the NES came out and the cartridges simply aren't programed with that resolution in mind.Read more ›
The system itself is nice to look at and it doesn't feel cheap at all. The first thing I did was plug it up to my HD TV using standard AV cables and the NES and SNES games I tested out in it looked great! The system also has an S-video hookup but I don't have one of those cables. My only complaint is it's functionality with the original NES controllers. The system has three sets of controller ports and is supposed to work with original NES, SNES, and Genesis controllers. I tested the system with my SNES controllers (a regular controller and a 3rd party turbo controller) and they both worked fine. I tested both of my NES controllers and they wouldn't work! Only the B button did anything. I tried the system with the wireless controller that came with and they worked ok. The buttons felt a little cheap and you had to point the controllers directly at the system like a tv remote. The back of the controller also gave a button conversion stating which buttons do what for which systems. The layout works as expected with NES and SNES games but it looks like they dropped the ball with Sega Genesis. Sega has three buttons that go from left to right and the retron conroller reversed the last two buttons so instead of A,B,C it goes A,C,B.Read more ›
