We love games and we love to play them. But in 2018 we can surly have ONE gaming system that can play everything? Dedicated to gaming and completely controllable with a controller? ONE system that can play old, new, PC games, Console games… EVERYTHING! ….ALL FOR LESS THAN £300!?!?! ($380 USD)
So I am making it my mission to build one and this is the first one out the gates. The video is 50 mins long… terrilong I know, but I have allot of information and games to get through. I asked if you wanted it split or full and you said full… here you go!
03:33 – SOFTWARE
06:46 – PC GAMES BENCHMARKS
17:41 – EMULATED GAME BENCHMARKS
33:29 – THE PARTS USED AND WHY
44:52 – BREAKDOWN AND TOTALS
More videos and builds like this on the way… Some cheaper, some more expensive. It’s all thanks to you guys helping and making this channel what it is that gives me the chance to do this kind of thing. Thank you to everyone who has helped and those of you who even donated parts to make some of these happen and of course those of you who donated to my Patreon… I hope I did you all justice and you will all have the credits for all your help.
Please be aware that in the capturing of these videos the framerate and bitrate has been changed for them to show properly in this video. This means that the footage is not identical in quality to the original gameplay. I am not saying I have improved them, if anything they may seem choppy due to variable 30-60fps games being handbraked to a static 60 to be usable in my software and YouTube.
You will need Windows 10. I am not including this in the budget as worst case scenario you can use fully fledged Windows 10, even Pro if you wanted to for free as long as you dont mind the WaterMark. But, in 2018, I am sure you can source a full version of Windows for free if you look hard enough.
(I will add whatever discount/link or code here once I am linked to it by the Launchbox guys)

This video in regards to Emulation is made to encourage you to play your BACKUPS. In other words, THE GAMES WHICH YOU ALREADY OWN!. Please do not emulate any games which you do not already have on any systems which you do not own. Unless of course they are abandon/free-ware due to license or age.
Emulation for me is not about playing games I do not own. It is about playing games on another platform. In fact on my PC at 4k internal resolution 60fps with one controller… not having 200+ consoles set up with 600+ controllers tangled up!
ESPECIALLY, do not sell anything to do with this scene or be stupid enough to buy anything from this scene. Support Developers (especially SEGA) and pay for what you play!
