GameShell is the world's first modular, portable game console with a GNU/LINUX embedded operating system. It allows you to play thousands of classic games from Atari, GB, GBA, NES, SNES and many of history’s greatest consoles.

Include Cave Story, DOOM, and much more classic independent/portable games.
Support games from Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, NES, SNES and other consoles.
Modify your favorite games, or create your own games with your favorite programming language.

This looks like a fun game console for people who like emulator, making games, modding games, and playing free games.
huh, neat. If they can confirm you can throw the games to a bigger screen I might be willing to stand behind this.
yeah, but it don't mean much till they get it out and fully tested.

The Gameshell uses the Raspberry Pi mini-pc models like the Pi and Pi Zero W according to the picture from their Kickstarter page I previously posted above. Tge Raspberry Pi had HDMI and composite video ever since the first Raspberry Pi 1.

I think buyers are mainly buying the Gameshell for the operating system, emulator software, screen, and controller case.
