Just order myself a raspberry pi 3 so can put retro pi on for arcade games etc,just wondering if we can run fruit machines on this?? possibly via retro arch.

Doubt the cpu will be powerful enough for some fruits and probably only the older arcade games.

Pi3 isn't that powerful when compared to an Asus Tinker Board.  I very nearly bought an intel Atom based 'Up-Board' was going to build a small mfme cab but never got round to it.

Didnt know there was anything else out there. Just had a look at one of these and probably would of ordered one. As for the intel atom would you be to run ps2 on this? and would it run ok connected to external hardrive?

PS2 is a tough one, might struggle to be honest.

...but I don't have much experience in PS2 emulation to be fair, probably check a youtube video.

Thinking of getting a raspberry pi 3.

 

Is there anything better out there? I have a 100 odd gig image or retropie, or something like that. 

 

How does the playstation 1 run on this? Pretty much the main reason I want one :)

Might be ok Spa, but there are more powerful little boards out there.    Asus Tinker board for one :)

 

 

I don't have one, was going to get one a while back but never got round to it.

I think you can get the Tinker board from Curry's.
