We have seen the flood of ‘mini’ consoles into the market and whilst we love these products, they have a short shelf life. They’re great fun and offer excellent content, but they are not expandable. Our cartridge based system enables you to purchase one piece of hardware and then add new content for a low additional cost. It’s a great value, future proof investment,” said the company.
