If you are one of the people that like the idea of the Game Pie Advance, but don’t quite feel comfortable buildin your own, we have great news. Our friends at Retro Modding (retromodding.com) are now selling a limited number of built-to-order GPA retro gaming consoles. These are based on our GPA v2.1 kits. Before you ask, no, we have not been building units for them while everyone else is left waiting. In fact, Retro Modding helped with the pre-order of v2.1 kits just like everyone else involved with that pre-order did.
If you just want to head over to their website and see what their built-to-order GPA is all about, try this link.

I guess this makes Retro Modding the new official value-added re-seller of GPA. If you don’t know about retromodding.com, I suggest that you check out this video to see some of their handiwork.
They have a lot of options to consider, so read it all over. Basically, you get to choose exactly what the GPA will look like, and then they build it up for you. We’ve recently done some tests on the batteries they are including, and we have seen a single cell last over 2.5 hours. They are building in two of these cells, which should give you over 5 hours of RetroPie gaming on a full charge.
In other news, we have been working hard on getting things ready for the upcoming Kickstarter campaign. If you didn’t know that we’re planning to run a Kickstarter, please check out this post about our retro gaming Kickstarter.
We still have some surprises in store for you guys. Our main Kickstarter goal is to really ramp up production of our GPA kits, but we also have some other cool news to come. I really think it will be worth the wait. I just hope we can get our message out to everyone that would like a kit of their own. As always, we appreciate every time you guys share our news. Let us know if you do, so we can read along.
