In today’s day and age with all of the emulation software that is available to us, some would ask why such extensive hardware mods still exist. Mainstream emulation has become more portable with the increase in processing power we see in today’s laptops. Besides, why would you want to carry around optical discs with you when your entire game library could be stored on your hard drive?
Modder Gman is here once again with a finished portable console that reminds us why these hardware mods are still as relevant and cool as they were back in the day. Featuring a 4″ LCD screen and a controller built into Polycase’s AG-85 series enclosure, his 3rd PlayStation 2 portable is small, has internal batteries, and runs all of its games off of any removable USB storage. Utilizing the innards from a PS2 Slim 79000 this portable console utilizes Free MCBoot in order to load games right off of a flash drive. This allows for the complete removal of the disc drive meaning no carrying around discs!
Gman even put together a little video demonstrating the unit and showing some game play. You can view it below:
