Having a browse over at Instructables we came across a set of instructions (funnily enough) by member 1up that lay out 38 steps to get from a SNES (or any games console) to jamming its contents into a more manageable hand-held gaming system. Ben Heck eat your heart out.
Its no walk in the park so don’t even attempt this unless you have a couple of hundred dollars spare, 4 months and balls the size of New York so that you can risk breaking whatever games console you decide to turn into a hand-held (note how although the instructions can be applied to any console, they wisely started with a cheap and cheerful SNES).
If you have the time and determination to make the front page of Digg or Engadget with your leet “portablized” games console then grab your soldering iron and the instructions
and get going. Just make sure you take our advice and hope over to eBay to pick up Sega Master System to practice on first before you go breaking apart your xBox 360 (you can spring for a Sega Master System II if you’re feeling wealthy).
