PS2p
Hello, after 2 years, I finally finished my first ever portable. I was 15 years old when I started to do it. This is my PS2P, it made from PVC plastic and it houses 7 inch screen, PS2 90004 in almost unchanged form, 4200 mAh battery, 2.4 GHz gamepad with sacrificed DualShock 2 controller for buttons and sticks. My goal was to make easy to assemble and create portable in cheapest way possible. PS2 wasn’t modified much and can be converted back in it’s regular PS2 Slim form. It can work for 2.15 hours strait, but it also connects to custom power supply created from PS2 Slim internal PSU and I can connect it to TV using standard AV Multi Out port on the bottom. It works like normal PS2, so you can connect external gamepads and play in multiplayer mode. In mind was dock station, but I can’t find some parts for it. It’s not cleanest portable in any way, it done low on budget an using knife, soldering iron, hot glue and superglue. Please don’t comment about imperfections of exterior, it just works and for me it’s enough.

It looks great for a first! Are you planning on going into an engineering field at some point?

I’m sorry, but now I can’t do that, because audio amp fried, of course if you don’t mind missing sound I can do the video.

Nice work! Would love to see a 3D printed redesign, as I do like the overall shape of it. But of course the homemade vibe is always a welcome one! :D
I will not do 3D case for this one, I like how it looks, but if you want to use overall shape, I don’t mind.

that's okay as I just want to see GTA San Andreas working on this thing.
I’m back with the photos. I record 4 minute demo to show that it works, but I don’t know how I send it here, so only some screenshots of video will be here. Introduction video works at full speed without stuttering and sound loses. Photo of internals show simplicity of system, on left upper corner is some tape because audio amp was fried and I’m waiting for new one. (I upload video with link later).

New changes:
Audio board and controller board moved under motherboard;
Added regulator for the fan, constant 9.2v, 1W max;
Removed 5 leg IC next to USB ports, this must extend battery life for some time (didn’t tested it);
Added carbon plate of 0.5 mm on top of the portable, covering large holes and it’s looks cool;
All old inscriptions are now in black color, old ones erased;
Some photos:
