Okay so a Tardis mame cabinet gets all the glory about the boys from chch, New Zealand? They re-created a replica death star control tower over n' over again, due to the quakes messing it up. Yeah I suppose its not really appropriate to put it in, but I'm going to mention it because, it deserves all the glory, well done fellas!

I appreciated most of that. However, the n64p is bothering me. Not because it isnt a fine mod, but because the article makes it seem as though that thing is one of a kind. Simply put, it isnt. There's portables of almost every console under the sun, and hundreds of them, at that. That particular one is a pretty clean cut example of a very generic n64p. Its nicely finished, but it is large, and not particularly noteworthy. Two great sites to check out are the benheck forums [http://forums.benheck.com/] and the Modretro Forums. [http://forums.modretro.com/index.php] Benheck is a bit slow these days, but there is still a great community there, and Modretro is booming.

Some nice examples here:
Loveablechevy's Sega GameGear portable:

Techknott's 2nd PS2 portable:

Mario's Atari Flashback portable, "Stella"

ShockSlayer's TINY N64p, "the TriSixtyFource"

Ashen's Gamecube Fusion #1

That G-Con 3 mod looks awesome. The scope and paint-job look cool enough

So, the TARDIS MAME cabinet is essentially a whole arcade in a small blue box. Heh.

NES in an NES Cartridge? Leave "Yo dawg!" jokes here.

Not my favorite, but I was a bit of a satellite geek in the C-Band days, so I understand a good bit of what she's saying (for once). Violate privacy in the privacy of your own home!

Some of those are really cool, and I love anything portable gaming. I just don't get the reason for a gun PS3 controller, aside from looking cool, the button layout would be difficult for the X and triangle.
