Although the industries are not quite as related as they used to be back when home computers and hobby Electronics were first gaining popularity, Gaming and Making often go hand-in-hand, with many Makers around who love to game, and many Gamers who likewise love to Make. With this in mind, we knew we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to provide these fantastic Raspberry Pi Handheld Gaming Packs for customers like you, so you can do both of your favourite past-times simultaneously, and enjoy Making your very own handheld gaming console, while having fun once the little device is built.

This kit is comprised of everything you need to build your very own retro-gaming console aside from a Raspberry Pi board, and the style is designed to a similar shape and feel as the ever-popular Sony PSP console. However, because of the open-source nature of Raspberry Pi, and the plethora of amazing software available to Pi-wranglers online, you can install almost any games from very popular old gaming systems like the Nintendo NES and SNES, Gameboy and Gameboy Advanced, and even some of the older more powerful consoles like the Playstation, Nintendo64, as well as some game arcade games like Metal Slug and Soul Calibre.

For more great kits like the Raspberry Pi Handheld Gaming Kit, be sure to check out our Raspberry Pi Kits section in our catalogue to see all of the options we have on offer, including the Portable Workstation Kit, as well as the Sensor Development Kit and the Raspberry Pi Mega Bundle too.

Please Note: This kit does not include the Raspberry Pi board or battery. However, we do stock these in our Raspberry Pi and Batteries sections, so be sure to keep this in mind when purchasing your Raspberry Pi Handheld Gaming Kit.

Typical Applications for Raspberry Pi Handheld Gaming Accessories Pack:

With the Raspberry Pi Handheld Gaming Accessories Pack, you receive everything you need to build your very own handheld gaming console aside from a Pi Board and a battery. The reason for this is because Raspberry Pi boards can be expensive, and as such we have excluded a predefined model from the kit so that you can choose precisely which board you want to use. This way, you can decide on exactly how much power your handheld console needs, and you can even choose to repurpose an old project that you don’t use anymore. If you do need a Raspberry Pi to run this, however, be sure to take a look at our Raspberry Pi Boards section to see what we have in stock, and which may best cater to your handheld console needs.

Additionally, while this kit is primarily meant to provide you with a gaming console, it can also be used for a range of other applications too. One such application would be to create your own little pocket computer for basic computing tasks and even light work on the go, while another fantastic use case would be to use the assembled console as a controller for those PC games you love to dominate with controller in hand.

  • The Pi Game HAT User Manual, with a succinct description of the features and helpful tutorials and guides for setting up your Pi Game HAT.
