Which consoles haven't been portablized?

Post by ArugulaZ » Tue Oct 20, 2009 1:28 pm

Also, which consoles should be? It seems like all the major systems have been covered by hackers, but what about some of the obscurities? Has anyone ever attempted, say, a micro Astrocade, or a shrinky dink Fairchild Channel F? Are the motherboards for these systems small enough to pull off such a mod? Would it even be worth the trouble since they're so esoteric? Inquiring minds want to know!

Dont talk crap about Saturn haha, it was awesome; Virtua Fighter, Panzer Dragoon Series, NiGHTS, Sega Rally/Daytona USA, Working Designs RPGS (such as Albert Oddessey, Magic Knight Rayearth, Dragon Force [not the band thankfully]), Shining Force III, Guardian Heroes, etc.

Don't forget all the imports which there is tons of great stuff in there as well.

My first computer/console was a coco II. I've never seen anyone portablize it. It would definitely be best suited as a laptop, and I really doubt anyone would spend the time or money it would take to do it.

Basically a Saturn portable would be almost the same size and thickness as the Saturn console itself.

I was thinking about it but just to big and bulky.

Really? Ben did one: http://benheck.com/04-14-2008/apple-iig ... are-laptop" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The IIc had a lcd screen and you could pick up third party batteries for it.

Barely.
A truly wise man can entertain a thought without accepting it. A fool cannot withhold past judgments but instead closes his mine to new possibilities. Someone who wants to innovate simply needs to forget what everyone says isn't possible.
