You can just use a GCN DC converter.

Yeah its packaging the whole thing together thats tough. Anyways if someone can do the Dreamcast as is, Ben can do it no problem. Please note that the only reason that Ben had trouble with the N64 was he wanted to make it less then 2" thick.

No point in a Genesis portable. It already exists. Ever heard of the Sega Nomad?

Ever read the story of Ben's Genesis portable (the Exodus)? :roll: The reasons Ben built the Exodus are clearly explained on the age at the end.

Besides, what would you suggest in place of the Genesis, I mean the book HAS to have a least 4 portables in it to seem complete.

Plus, you can have a built-in TV tuner if you extend the tact switches on the board and add a switch to switch between the AV inputs/Game system and the original TV tuner. Even better than a Nomad!

Hacking Video Game Colsones 2 will never happen, unless you write it.
