Raspberry Pi – Picade Arcade Cabinet Review!

Retro video games are darn cool. Street Fighter. Pac-man. Space Invaders. Doesn’t get much better than that right?! And if you can play them on a proper arcade cabinet, with proper controls and buttons, that makes it even cooler?! Well the Picade from Pimoroni tries to do just that – turn your Raspberry Pi into a fully-fledged desktop emulation-infused arcade cabinet. It features an 8″ screen, arcade joystick, speakers and 12 customisable microswitch buttons. But does the UK’s first ever Kickstarter live up to the hype? How good is the Picade at recreating that classic feel? Find out in my review!
