Completely Speechless... in a bad way.
Now everyone else can say their console is portable? I gotta keep working on mine and make it thinner. :oops:

Things of this nature have existed for a while. The psone had had all these components in a similar fashion; the psone and screen (of course), a battery and a controller dock. Everything external, in a plug and play fashion & pretty clunky, as with this thing. All this is just a glorified "dock," if you will, really nothing at all compared to full fledged mods like we do here and shouldn't destroy/alter modding in any way, if that's what you are speechless "in a bad way" about. To house an entire system and all that other stuff in there it has to be thick as hell, maybe cumbersome to carry around (the handle helps I'm sure), and I don't trust that review about "no overheat." A nice alternative for those who can't/wont "do better," but it effects the modding community the same as smartphone emulators do.

It's not handheld, therefore I say it's not portable :p kinda neat but I don't see it selling too well.
