Perfect, they've nailed price and config options. We've got a project going through at the moment ready to get ported straight to these for an initial roll out in select venues.

More generally on the hobbyist side, maybe portable Pi gaming has just taken a big step towards a desirable future.

I have one that looks like an original gameboy and uses a Pi Zero W. It's great for NES/SNES/SEGA, but lacks the power for anything more. More options are definitely welcome and it will be awesome to see what people come up with.

Yeah the little more emulation orientated kits are great, but yeah often so far the form factor and power has been a big trade off vs each other, Eben Upton has been talking a lot recently of wanting a Commodore/AtariST/BBC Micro/ect style fresh indie/hobbyist games market on the more modern Pi hardware, maybe as an intro for kids into development too much in the same way those PCs were
