Eager to get your hands on a classic home console system to play and relive those old NES games? This kit provides a Raspberry PI 3 model B with the required components to get it up and running. We also wrote a nice guide to allow users to start playing with the RPI on the RetroPie OS.
Please Note: We do not ship RetroPie Preloaded on the MicroSD cards due to licensing Restrictions.
This kit can be repurposed for other projects in the future as well, such as installing OpenElec for media center, Raspbian for desktop system and etcetera. We recommend this kit as a raspberry starter as the user is introduced to Linux systems for the first time with minimum command line codes and offers a rewarding experience. We also checked to see how far we could go with the Console Build and were able to play N64 Games without any audio issues.
This kit contains:
Featuring the Raspberry PI 3 as the main brains of the robot. Straight from the Raspberry PI foundation to you. It is based on the Raspberry PI 2, that features a quad core ARMv8 processor that is slight clocked faster and produces less heat than it predecessor. It also features 1GB of shared ram, 4 USB ports, 40 GPIO pins, Full HDMI port, Ethernet port, VideoCore IV 3D graphics core and identical form factor to the previous Pi 2. However unlike the PI 2, it has WIFI N and Bluetooth 4.1 BLE integrated onboard! This kit will focus on the Raspberry PI running a variant of Debian OS called Raspbian.
This Heat Sink Cooler Kit For Cooling your Raspberry Pi includes 3 aluminum heat sinks with adhesive backing. These heat sinks will reduce hardware failure due to overheating.
Each set contains:
1 x 14mm(L) x 14mm(W) x 5mm(H) Heatsink for Soc

Note: If you want to make your own Console Gaming kit with custom 3D printed cases, we recommend to pick up some GAMES-03 controllers for games that do not require the analog stick.
For users who want to play games using the analog stick we recommend attaching your Bluetooth PS2 or PS3 controllers to the Raspberry Pi to ensure quality gameplay experience.
