Retro Gaming Roundup and Jri-Rigg are teaming up for a giveaway of the excellent Jri-Rigg Silver Edition Gaming Media Center! The Jri-Rigg is a tiny, Raspberry Pi based setup featuring the highest quality addons and accessories, set up for your media and retro gaming needs. Simply add your legally owned ROMS and you are ready to play! The Jri-Rigg is not your average Raspberry Pi hacked together with a cheap case and controllers. First, they take an authentic Pi unit (not a chinese knockoff) and add heatsinks to the GPU and CPU to help protect your system. Adding to the protection is a solid metal case with a thick acrylic window and a power supply built to supply your Pi with the proper amount of power that includes a power switch for your pi (standard pi just powers on when you plug it in). The SD cards are pre-configured for you (other than your ROMS) so all you do is plug in and play, and are speedy, using the Sandisk Ultra micro SD cards for maximum read and write speed. Speaking of plugging in and playing, the Silver Edition also includes the i-buffalo SNES style controller. Unlike other cheap controllers, the D-Pads on these are built for gaming. No problems getting Ryu to throw that dragon punch! Add in a wireless remote that doubles as a mouse and keyboard. the Jri-Rigg Silver Gaming Edition is the ultimate retro console, and is small enough to take to a friends house for a multiplayer gaming session that fits in your pocket! Go to www.jri-rigg.com for the lowdown.
The contest is being held by our friends at Retro Gaming Roundup, home of the longest running (and longest) retro gaming podcast on the internet. Every month they have a new episode featuring news, reviews, and retro game discussion. Usually ranging from 5 to 7 hours long, the show is hosted by Scott Schreiber and Mike James, and also features Simon Butler, Random Dave, and Sparklepuss. YOU can also be featured in the Live News segment, where you can send in your news submissions during the month and than join in a chat room with the hosts while they go over each months news in the retro gaming world. Please check out www.retrogamingroundup.com for more info.
