Hidden in the tall grass of Outset Island with a Camouflaged paint job is the Gamecube Portable by modder Bakuku, And it is awesome.
So it turns out, you can actually Portablize consoles that aren’t even made by Nintendo! Who knew? Skeptical? We were too, but do we have quite the bit of proof for you today in Fibbef’s Original Playstation Portable, the PSYu/ユ.
Miceeno over on the forums has been busy at work on his latest Nintendo 64 portable dubbed the Nintendo Sixty 4or the Win. The unit is truly a marvel that redefines what the average person knows as elegance.
Human Portable Making Machine Gman keeps the production line going with his latest, a Nintendo Wii portable trimmed down small enough to fit, along with all the other necessary components, inside a Gameboy DMG case. How is such a thing possible? Is it just a Mirage? Perhaps just a PCI capture card inside an Atari Jaguar Shell? Has Gman obtained the schematics to the fabled Electromagnetic Shrinking Machine, last seen in the 1989 hit Honey I Shrunk the Kids? The Secrets Revealed, Exclusively on Bitbuilt.
We here at BitBuilt have just completed our very first building competition! With 18 forum members participating, we had a diverse range of projects and designs (even if the top three were Wii projects). The three winners are as follows (drum roll please):
Aurelio’s Portable Piizza is the Piizza free delivery.
Aurelio’s Piiza is the Piizza very ta-as-ty.
Aurelio’s Piiza is the Piizza absolutivaly.
After an impressive line of GameCube portables, and with the plans for the newest “OMGWTF” Wii trim having just been released on BitBuilt, JacksonS was ready to board the Wii Train. Drawing inspiration from Ashen’s GameCube Fusion Rev. 4 as well as the Wii U Gamepad, the goal was simple: to make a quality device that felt “very Wii”. A slick coat of white paint and official Nintendo buttons and LEDs helped him achieve this goal quite nicely.
[AirConditioner] (a.k.a Fluxedo) has built a gorgeous GameCube Portable, dubbed Dolphin Boy 2.0; with a fully-custom designed 3D printed case, external controller ports, and a WASP Fusion, you can store tons of games and play with your friends too!
What’s more, this portable boasts approximately 5 hours of battery life and circuitry for both charging the batteries and playing from wall power.
Even through several iterations, the Atari Flashback 2 is still the favorite among console modders, collectors, and Atari enthusiasts. While we have seen our fair share of hacks, cartridge port mods, and of course, portables, none push the envelope quite like this. After 8 years of off and on planning, lovablechevy combined all her acquired data, knowledge, and skills to create the Pocket Atari, a complete portable inside an Atari 2600 cartridge.
Advances are being quickly made with the Wii, and while console modders across the forums haven’t gotten the board down to it’s smallest yet, Gman has proven that bigger can definitely be better.
