Hardware Review: The Retro-Bit Prism HD Is Another Great GameCube HDMI Adapter

With an added bonus…

HDMI output on the GameCube has been around for a while. Back in 2018, we got the rather rough-and-ready GC Video Plug ‘n Play 3.0, which did the job but came in a rather ugly 3D-printed case. Shortly afterwards there came the EON GCHD adapter (and, not long afterwards, its sequel), and in 2019 a budget option arrived in the shape of the Insurrection Carby. All of these devices use the same GCVideo software, and they all have one notable weakness – updating them to the latest version of GCVideo requires some degree of disassembly.

Enter Retro-Bit’s Prism HD Adapter. It’s also running GCVideo and offers the same lovely HD visuals as its rivals, but the key difference is that it has a USB-C port on the side which means you can update it easily. It’s also running the latest revision of GCVideo (3.0e) out of the box, which is nice. Oh, and like the Carby, it comes with its own remote so you can access GCVideo’s UI more easily (the GCHD doesn’t offer this).
