I always tend to forget about this. Other then maybe Plex on the Replay I use an Android set top box for a lot of my media consumptionZee wrote: ↑Wed Apr 18, 2018 3:40 pmBut the bottom line is that this device was also promoted to act as a multimedia device, giving the user additional functionality in terms of using other applications like Steam, Kodi, Twitch, Netflix, etc.
Something Windows 10 allows and has has greater compatibility with.
This as well. In all honesty if you just want a cheap decently powerful emulation box buy a Dell Optiplex and throw a video card in.Zee wrote: ↑Wed Apr 18, 2018 3:40 pmWorth pointing out that even without Windows 10 being a factor, the specs of the Replay would still limit the consoles / systems that it would be able to run smoothly. You mentioned playing newer arcade games and Wii - the Replay would still struggle with those (well, the Wii might be OK, but nothing has been tried/tested as yet. Playstation and N64 have successfully been tested, though).
You've got to remember the price point of this device, and what that's comparable to in terms of other devices on the market doing similar things.
You'll see a lot people who are on a budget but want to go from console to PC gaming start this way because with an OK video card you can get some decent gaming going. You will also get better performance, video quality, and a bigger library of games then a console offers not to mention you can break away from paying for Xbox Live or PSN. This is the way to get your foot in the door, and experience what PC gaming has to offer.
With the Replay you are also getting the front end, reload software, and form factor
