I'm sick of all these HD SNES/NES clones that don't even read the carts directly.(They just dump the ROM and suffer from compatibility issues.) I just want one that uses the actual hardware, or better yet have them make other system repros like the Turbografx and NeoGeo Pocket Color instead of the thousandth NES clone. The Gameboy Phone thing was the coolest thing that anyone has made in a while, so more clever stuff like that please.

Though, the Game Boy one also just dumps the ROM and emulates...

How is this different from the Retron 5 that takes all the various Nintendo/Sega carts?
