This portable GameCube is hot, gets its own music video

Console modder Tchay has given us the gift of a sick-ass portable GameCube this Christmas season. Now, we've seen plenty of hardware mods in the past, but not many are presented as a glamor reel / music video! Tchay did a bang-up job of editing some game footage (as played on the device, of course) to sync with "Thunderstruck" from the recent Zelda tribute album 25YEARLEGEND.

Behold, The Envision! Most of the games on parade are Zelda titles, but there is some ResiEvil, Beyond Good & Evil, Metroid Prime, and others as well. There are even a few N64 titles, which should give you an idea of the extent of the device's capabilities. In fact, this baby doesn't even run off discs at all! Using Wiikey Fusion, all the games run off an SD card!

Always happy to see such ingenuity in the gamer community. Good job, Tchay!
