Now other classic consoles are just toys!

Introducing The A500 Mini, a compact reimagining of this classic home computer. Featuring perfect emulation of not only the original A500 (OCS) and Enhanced Chip Set (ECS) of future revisions, but also the Advanced Graphics Architecture (AGA) of the A1200. Play one of the included 25 classic Amiga games, selected from a simple to use carousel, including all-time greats like Alien Breed 3D, Another World, Simon the Sorcerer and Worms, or side-load your own games via USB stick with full WHDLoad support and an array of options to choose from. Plus save and resume your game at any time to help you finish those punishingly difficult classics.
The THE A500 Mini comes with the original style 2-button mouse and newly engineered 8-button precision gamepad, allowing you to choose your control method. To compliment the on-screen keyboard, you can plug in an external standard USB PC keyboard for additional functionality.

25 classic Amiga games included, featuring: Alien breed 3D, Another World, ATR: All terrain Racing, Battle Chess, Cadaver, Kick Off 2, Pinball Dreams, Simon the Sorcerer, Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe, The Chaos Engine, Worms: The Director's Cut, Zool: Ninja Of The ''Nth'' Dimension
Emulates Amiga 500, 600 & 1200 (ECS/OCS/AGA)
Save & resume game functions
Via USB, add your own games, update the firmware, and connect your own devices (USB memory stick required (NOT supplied)). THE A500 Mini is compatible with 100's of classic Amiga games and demos, utilising WHDLoad for simplicity (games must be legally obtained/purchased from the legal owners)
50/60Hz in 720p HD via HDMI
Multiple scaling options & CRT filter

I believe truth and principle do matter. If you have to sacrifice them to get the results you want, then the results aren't worth it.

Been watching some youtube videos on this and apparently there is a plan (no guarantee that it will happen) to make a A500 Maxi version sometime later.
