    Have you ever seen those videos about people making portable versions of home game consoles?

    Ex.

    Portable Super Nintendoes




    Portable NES




    Portable N64




    Portable PS1 and PS2




    Portable Dreamcast



    Quite interesting.

        Where the hell does the Z button go?

        A few weeks ago I was considering getting a Supaboy, but I went with a regular SNES instead. Never heard of any of those other things.

        Not sure what the point of the videos is? Can you explain? Is it just to prove they work.

          i just decided to get one after hearing about a lot of dying snes consoles in the past few years of being here. it can still play those games with lockout chips, they just have to be the right ones. that, and it can play super famicom games!

          the only games that you have to make sure to get are

          kirby superstar: copy that says 'made in japan' on cartridge
          super mario rpg: copy that says 'made in mexico' on cartridge

          because the other ones don't seem to work with it.

          oh and that dreamcast portable has the crappiest design. why no cd cover?

            Good to know. But if my new old SNES does fail I will probably replace it with a Retro Duo instead of a Supaboy. It's really cool but I think I still rather have the games on TV instead of portable.

              the supaboy actually does come with an av cable, you just need a controller for its use when plugging it in the tv.

              looking at those other portables, they're not manufactured, just hand crafted by people, as most of the video uploaders state. the portable dreamcast looks decent, but why is it such a problem to make a cover/tray for the discs? looks pretty unsafe

                I know, but Supaboy cost $80. Retro Duo cost $50 and can also play NES games. I think I'm more likely to get some NES carts than I am to really want to play Super Nintendo somewhere else.
