How to Build an All-In-One Retro Game Console for $35, the Easy Way [Project]
posted February 17 2014 4:05.39 by spic0m

Turning your Raspberry Pi into a retro game system that can play all sorts of games is dead simple with RetroPie.

Since its release, the $35 Raspberry Pi mini-computer has been hailed as the perfect all-in-one retro game console. Now, it's easier to do than ever, and it doesn't take any advanced Linux knowledge. Here's how to make your own retro game console in about 30 minutes.

We've walked you through all sorts of DIY projects for the Raspberry Pi, but this one might be the simplest. You'll have your retro game console 14complete with old-school controllers 14up and running within 30 minutes. All you need to do is install the operating system on an SD card and do some simple file sharing from your PC.

Before we get started, let's go over some basics. Emulating old-school video games requires two things: game ROMs and an emulator to play them. A ROM is a copy of a game that exists on your device. An emulator is an application that can play that ROM. The rule of ethics is that you should have a physical copy of a game if you have a ROM (or you can create your own from your old cartridges).
