The real manufacturer of the Retron 3
« on: December 05, 2015, 12:51:06 PM »
I kind of had the feeling that a particular Shenzhen-based company had manufactured the Retron 3 console for Hyperkin, particularly given that they were also responsible for various other similar consoles.

But I didn't think that they'd make it quite this blatant:

(Gotta love the poor attempt at obscuring Hyperkin's logo in the thumbnail... when it's still visible in the shots of the console itself down the page. ~Quality~.)

[Edited to add: Apparently this is kind of old news-- at the very least, it's old news that QSL was manufacturing Hyperkin's consoles. But I don't remember them explicitly taking credit for the Retron 3 before, only the Retron 1.]
