Remember cartridges? They were chunky bits of plastic and electronics that games used to be distributed on – the last one was the N64, released back in 1996. The good thing about a cartridge is that when you own one the creator of that game can’t suddenly take it away from you. This is one of advantages of the cartridge when compared to digital distribution that has led to the development of the Retro VGS (Retro Video Games System), which is an upcoming cartridge-based games console.It’s the project of Mike Kennedy, who is also the publisher of Retro Magazine, and he’s looking to bring it to Kickstarter this summer. For now, he has a pretty solid idea of what the Retro VGS is for and what he hopes it will do.
