would you buy it from me first?
Or are you basicly just advertising it?

This sounds great actually! (if it were verified) I love this hobby and I know you all do too. It would be great if we really could get a sell at a show. Even better than that, if we could come together (I know, I know, it sounds IMPOSSIBLE :roll: ) and actually START a company or business. I always dreamed of "United Portable Inc" with Palmer and ShockSlayer as CEO's and all of us in individual heads of the company. We could collaborate with each other (oversea's) and build and sell portables for a(n) agreed upon price ( I know I'm getting all dreamy on you guys, but I'm just saying :mrgreen: ). because as we all know, many people, ESPECIALLY collectors, hobbyists and gamers alike would love to have a "GameBoy64" or a "Sega GO"(DCp). These may be common to us, but a rarity to others, cause what kid wouldn't LOVE to pull out a N64p and play Super Smash Bro's on the bus? WITHOUT having a cumbersome laptop or a PissP

It's a hobby. There are already mass-produced consumer handhelds (maybe less capable, but cheaper than what any of us are willing to sell for), so there wouldn't be much demand either.

yea ill be selling at frank and sons. just google it.. its pretty legit theres like 4 main guys just selling old school game systems and accessorries. and trust me... its PACKED on saturdays. its only open on saturdays and wednesday... im serious about the business man.. i wont cheat anybody out of there portable. i currently made one portable 64 so far... i cant get the case right.. im a eletrical wizzz so all the soldering isnt a problem but the plastic vacuum pressing was a wholle new concept... i tried it.. but damn its hard... but yea..... let me know.

my plan is to get a few portables ( im looking for the cheaply frankenmoded AND the higher quality like sonics) and just premiering a whole new booth for just portables... i would take like 5% - 10% of sale? and.. i will also be looking for regular people who can make one. once every one or two weeks.

This is a really bad idea.

The biggest thing is that these are homemade portables. Made with epoxies/paint/hot glue. Made by amateurs , yes even those who have made several.

It is hard enough to warranty one of these that we have made ourselves let alone warranty one that you are selling for someone you don't know or don't know the quality of their work.

And even the best made ones out there will have a decently high failure rate.

Bad idea.

Well do what you want, but I would bet money it won't work.

Also all the good portable makers out there don't need anybody to sell our portables. We are getting commissioned to make them and we are behind as it is. LOL

So anyway .... Good Luck :)

$210 sound good?


Edit: I just realized that might be too much, if your going to sell it again, I think $170 sounds more resionable. (that inculdes shipping, payment via paypal)
