I'll be impressed when somebody makes a portable Vectrex, complete with miniature versions of the screen overlays.

Indeed. Even emulation doesn't quite capture it.

I know there is a portable megadrive. As someone who lived through the time of portable CD players, I can say a portable disc based system will be extremely hard to pull off.

This does raise hope for unofficial machines to replace aging ones. If they could make a N64 that had a high quality controller and could play roms, that would be conveniant and awesome.

I know right. Spike, Clean Sweep, Web Wars, etc. look so wrong on a regular monitor. Wish I still had my Vectrex.

Wish I could afford to get one at the moment :lol: Don't forget Minestorm and the ports of Berzerk and Pole Position! :D

You can make your own portable N64, actually. Using this guy's tutorials: http://moddedbybacteria.wordpress.com/retro-console-system-modding-guides/nintendo-n64-video-guide-log/

Been wanting to do that myself as I have a spare N64. :D

But yeah, awesome stuff there. Nice GBA style design. ^^

@Dublinfox: We can have that. :P It's actually pretty easy to convert a console into a portable thing. If you have the proper tools, etc. :)

I've seen plenty of these, some are bad and some are freakin awesome!

It makes me wish Nintendo would go ahead and do something like this officially. A portable N64 and a portable GameCube would have been AWESOME!

But isn't this why they've been making remakes instead of making a whole freakin' new system? You have to remember that making a new system is a lot of work. And a lot of money. I don't really think they should. We have enough remakes as is.

Wooooo....That's interesting, but I don't think I'd wanna pay much money for something like that. :P
