General Questions – What makes this different from the MC Cthulhu?

The Brook Retro Board is different from the MC Cthulhu in the following ways:

  • The Retro Board has a built in USB switch allowing simple mods that allow you to use a single RJ45 output for both boards in a dual mod setup.
  • The Retro Board has an RJ45 jack installed on the board out of the box. No need to solder wires to it for installing a pass through jack on your case.
  • Its pin-pin compatible with the UFB/PS4+ 
  • The Retro Board is supported by Brook Gaming with active development available. They pride themselves on “Backing You Up!”

General Questions – Can I use the Retro Board by itself?

Yes. The Brook Retro Board works 100% on its own as a retro console control board.
