Disc-less GameCube Handheld Is Awesome, Looks Like a PSP
Techknott, the man behind this mobile console hack, has a pretty serious history with console modification including a portable Dreamcast and a cool flip-top, portable GameCube. This time, it appears he decided to take things a step further and make his new GameCube portable disc-less, also giving it a control scheme that includes actual analog sticks, something the PSP never got. In order to be disc-less this device boots ROMs off of SD cards, which is questionably legal and undeniably awesome.
For reference, the console is about 1.5 times bigger than your standard GameCube controller, which isn’t bad considering this one has a GameCube inside it. The only downside is that it doesn’t have a battery pack which means it needs to stay on its leash. Still, if techknott really wanted to take this on the road, I’m sure adding batteries would be a walk in the park for someone with this kind of l33t sk1llz.
Video description suggests this is ultimately headed for eBay, unless a sweet offer comes in the meantime. So get on that, if you are so inclined.
