PC Classic is a retro DOS console of our dreams


The appetite for retro play continues to be fierce, but it is unlikely that even the hottest old school gamer has seen how this one is coming. While we are currently able to enjoy games from the original PlaiStation, Nintendo and Sega consoles, it was unlikely that the mini-PC box will work on DOS.

PC Classic from Unit-E comes in an atypical blunt beige box (by design, of course) that happened in the 90s of PC games. It offers support for joystick, a couple of USB ports and, unlike some consoles, support for games on SD cards.

The video shows games such as the original Doom, Commander Keen 4 and Jane of the Jungle, but these titles are currently unlicensed. The company says all of the games will be officially licensed, but now it does not confirm anything.

"We still do not have a list of confirmed titles, but the goal is to provide all the games that have defined the experience of PC games from the 80s and 90s," the company said.

You can see the prototype in the video below:

The current prototype offers HDMI and composite video outputs, and there is also Bluetooth support. Unit-E, which makes trade arcade games, will soon launch a promotion campaign. It plans to charge 99 pounds (about 75 pounds) for the device, which it plans to send next spring.

It seems that a great hope for this device is the ability to add games through an expanded storage device such as an SD card. Retro consoles such as the PlaiStation Classic and NES Classic Mini are pulled by a rigid selection of titles than can not be expanded without breaking the console and adding pirated ROMs.

Can PC Classic terminate the cycle and offer access to all licensed games?
