ODROID GO-Advance Black Edition KitThe game console is sold as a kit which adds to the fun. Once you’ve assembled the device, and flash the Ubuntu 18.04 image, you’ll be able to play a wide variety of games through emulators for Atari, GameBoy, MegaDrive, NES, PCEngine, Sega CD, PlayStation Portable (PSP), and many more.

Sometimes heavily discounted hardware means a new version is coming out, but we’ll have to see as the ODROID Go Super with a 5-inch display is still available for the same $80 price tag.
