In this video, I’ll show you how to make your own Mini Sega Genesis Console using a Raspberry Pi 4 running RetroPie. The console has wireless controllers and can be used to play a number of legacy arcade, console and classic PC games. So if you had a Nintendo, Sega or Atari console back in the day then you’ll definitely want to give this project a try.
RetroPie is a free Linux distribution that runs really well on the Raspberry Pi 4, so that’s what we’re going to be using for this project.
