Hi there. I was just wandering whether this console comes preloaded with the games and OS or if you have to load them on yourself
I’ll just give it five stars for the sake of the reveiw
The fully loaded does not come with OS/games installed. Fully loaded means it has all options (bigger battery, Sd, 3 gamepads and so on.)
But you still have to provide the 5$ raspberry pi zero and install software
Which is super easy
Does it come pre built or do you have to build it? As shown in unbox therapy video was fully built already. Looks amazing by the way. I can’t wait to own one.
It does not come pre built, you will have to provide the 5$ raspberry pi zero, it is only sold 1 max per customer so I could not include it in the kit. It’s the main reason why it comes as a kit!
hi there . i was wondering whether you shipped this thing to asia or just in the US ? i cant wait to have one
Yes we ship to Asia as well!
I would no mind if we had to pay more if it came with the games built in not really good with roms or anything
We’ll make a new kit later with pre-assembled (in few months) but there will still be no games pre-installed
Hi there. Do I need to order the pi zero board only or with power adapter as well to charge the thing? And where to copy roms on the sd card?
You can use any 5V 1A-or-more micro USB charger. If you don’t have one yet you can get the raspberry pi one it will work great.
To put roms you can use a USB stick, it’s described there : http://www.8bcraft.com/assembly-tutorial/
Does the software come installed already or how would I go about doing that and same goes for games
Software is not included, you can use Retropie for example it’s really very easy to setup. You can check on youtube for installation tutorial
hello,i want to know, if you have stock actually ? and whn you deliver if not ?
Hello, I was interested in buying this for my son. Does it come as a console with games on it? If not can i have the link for the os and games?
Please note that we sell electronic kits to build a game console not fully assembled consoles.
However the aim of the kit is to help kids and adults to discover electronics and raspberry pi with a fun, intuitive and easy kit.
The software you can use is called retropie, it’s very easy to install too.

since a few days I have the Raspiboy and I am really happy with this device. I have waited a long time for exactly a device like this one! It is very easy to put it together and it works very well. I will use the Raspiboy mostly as a handheld but the possibility to connect the device to the TV (with additional 3 controllers) is already very cool. In addition, the price performance ratio is very good.
The only criticism on my part: I would have liked that there is a slot for the SD card. If you want to exchange the SD card, you have to dismantle the device again.But from my point of view this is not a reason to pull off a star!
You have done a great job Pierre.
If it doesnt come with a raspberry pi zero so where can i get the it
You can check the stock in the different official resellers : http://www.whereismypizero.com/

My case arrived cracked and after contacting the owner a week ago I have not heard one thing in response.
Can’t use my unit.

Amazing little build! Loved it… I decided that after four pints of beer, it was the best time to start … to be honest I got further than I expected… If I can do it drunk, you can do it sober!

I’m considering buying the Rapisboy but I want to know which version of the Rapsery Pi Zéro I should buy. There’s currently two versions (Pi Zero v1.3 and Pi Zero W)….which one should I take ?
Thank you for your answer
if the games aren’t preinstalled, which sites do you get them?
Hello. Can i put a raspberry pi 3 inside?
How much is it in US dollars?
Dumb question how much is this in american dollars?

Just wanted to share my thoughts on this amazing device. I bought the Raspiboy in September 2017 and am completely in love. Fantastic quality, clean design and it JUST WORKS! Added in all the NES, SNES, GB, GBC and GBA games that I wanted (+1,000 games) and they all run perfectly. The low res screen is great for the older games as it’s far more forgiving compared with a modern HD screen. Just buy, build and enjoy. Thank you so much Pierre for this innovative and well delivered project.
