New Cartridge Based Console & 1st Gameplay Shown!



In this video I talk about the new RETRO Video Game System (VGS) console, which is the first cartridge based console in nearly 20 years! I also show gameplay footage to a new game called Adventures of the Tiny Knight, which will be a pack in game included with the console.

About Gamester81

John “Gamester81” Lester started playing video games at a very young age. His first ever console that he played was a Colecovision, quickly followed by an Atari 2600, and his passion for video games hasn’t stopped. In 2008 John decided to start a video game review show on YouTube called Gamester81 by reviewing rare and retro video game systems and games. His show quickly grew in popularity, and he became friends with many other gamers in the YouTube community.

He is also one of the hosts of the All Gen Gamers Podcast which is a bimonthly podcast for people and video games of all generations.

Some of John’s other hobbies includes collecting Star Wars memorabilia (YouTube channel Starwarsnut77), playing classic arcade games (YouTube channel Gamester81Arcade), watching sports, and listening to music. John is a big fan of the 80’s and 90’s and in 2009 started a YouTube channel called NEStalgiaholic where he talks about nostalgic items and memories from his childhood.

    This is awesome..
    If the price is right, I would certainly be interested. The design is interesting.. I love the fact that it’s from Atari quality, to PSX.. gives developers a wide range of it.

      Looks awful. Don’t waste your money on this, it’ll die a death in 5 minutes !

        Simply a matter of your opinion of course. 😉

    Sounds interesting. I’d want to find out more information and some game footage before I made any decisions on possible purchase.

    Although seems cool I’m unsure at this time. As more info come out then i can say yes or no. Do my Jump form SNES and DOS to Windows 95 and the options I never had before CD-ROM is why I have mixed feelings their for unsure.

    I believe that the market is there, I own a 3DS and although digital purchases are available I still like buying the physical game, I think this console is a great idea. I hope they have shipping to México when it comes out.

    Hearing about passwords is a disappointment. That is one of the aspects of retro gaming that I truly hate. A real nuisance. I wish there could be a memory cart or something.
