Build to Order Freeplay CM3

  • Sale
  • Regular price $319.99

The Freeplaytech's Freeplay CM3 is inspired by (and runs on) RetroPie. RetroPie is built on top of Raspbian, EmulationStation, RetroArch & Libretro, etc. Please familiarize yourself with these products before purchasing.

What you are buying here is a pre-built Freeplaytech's Freeplay CM3 unit. Keep in mind, even with us building the console, you will need to spend time to configure it according to your needs (Wifi, button mapping, etc). This requires you to have knowledge of Linux. Please keep in mind the DIY nature of this project before proceeding with your purchase.

Buying this console will require you to read, test and learn. If you are not ready to spend time, we strongly discourage you from purchasing this device.

Volume Controls are REVERSED due to space constraints.

Opening your console will void your warranty.

Some imperfections can be present, as this is a handmade unit, not a mass-manufactured one.
