My Portable Retro Game Console with 7.9-inch display

Good day

I've launched this project on Kickstarter that hopefully interest some of you:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cj ... ch-display
For more info and pictures: https://hackaday.io/project/164930-port ... ch-display

I know it's a bit more expensive than other Raspberry Pi-based consoles.
But the biggest reasons for that is the high quality IPS display and 8000 mAh battery.

All kind of support would be greatly appreciated.
If you have any questions, I will try to answer them as fast as I can.

Looks neat, but I must ask why use an IPS display? IPS displays are more suited for color accuracy, and unless you're an artist, are not really of any benefit for playing retro games...
Seems an unnecessary expense in my opinion.

Yes, I chose this display because of the great colour rendition. I prefer that before a TN display(look the comparison below).
But also for the 4:3 aspect ratio and brightness.
