One could argue that the miniaturization of classic game consoles into a portable device is kind of silly in this day and age. With the continual re-releases of older titles and [cough] emulation, lugging around Super Nintendo cartridges seems like a bit of a hassle.
Seeing the “portablization” of a Super Nintendo by BenHeck.com forum member Life of Brian has completely changed my mind. He says this is his third mini-SNES overall; this one was built on commission. I wonder how much he charges.
On this new portable, the SNES cartridge sits flush with the top and back, unlike its predecessor. The new one is a sleek white little number, with original SNES controller buttons and internal batteries. There’s also a headphone port and A/V jacks. You can’t emulate this stuff!
Be sure to check out this image of an upcoming newer model, which is even smaller in size.
I would gladly pay for one of these. What about you?
