Built a RetroPi, it's awesome, going to built some more and work on the hardware. This is not really a project so far, but there is more to do with it, in terms of hardware and software. Next step will maybe be making a PiCade style thing out of an old screen.

Basic part list...

  • Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ - £34
  • Official Raspberry Pi 3 Case - White/Red - £6
  • Raspberry Pi Compatible USB Gamepad / Controller ("SNES" Style) - £6 (x4 for four player, so £24)
  • 16GB uSD card - £4
  • HDMI cable - sure you've got one already
  • Telly or monitor - sure you've got one already
  • USB power pack / usb charger - sure you've got one already

...so it's maybe £70 for a full four player system. More expensive than an off-the-shelf retro gaming system, but it can do much more.
