02/05/2010, Now this is a merry bunch if we ever saw one – an SNES that is controlled by a Sixaxis controller alongside the Nokia N900 QWERTY handset. Thanks to Tomasz Sterna, he recompiled the kernel to add joystick as well as mouse support. Just make sure your N900′s Bluetooth connectivity is turned on, where you can return to the world of 16-bit gaming in full Mode 7 glory. What are […]
12/14/2009, What better way to recycle old and unwanted video game cartridges than to tear their innards out and replace it with something else? That’s what the Super Mario World SNES cartridge experienced, holding a hard drive within that hooks up to a nearby notebook or desktop via USB connectivity. Depending on your budget (prices start from $140 upwards), you can choose from a 320GB or 640GB model. Interestingly enough, you […]
11/28/2009, Nokia’s certainly putting a lot of effort into promoting its N900, but it seems that it might have gone a step too far with its latest video (which has since be yanked off YouTube). It was boasting that the N900 could run emulators and showed it running SNES emulators, which is fine, but the problem is that they showcased a video of Super Mario World and Super Ghouls and Ghosts […]
10/26/2009, This might be a decade and a half too late in coming, but as the adage goes, “better late than never.” This SNES developer’s cartridge will give budding programmers a chance to load your own code, run it on your SNES (if it is still working, of course) followed up by a debugging session. It will be running on a heart of an Atmel AVR ATmega644 that will power the […]
09/30/2009, Looks like the Nokia N900 is powerful enough to run an emulator of the SNES, where it will also boast Wiimote support, letting you enjoy your favorite SNES classics with the latest Nintendo console controller. Heck, you can also hook up the N900 to a TV thanks to TV out connectivity for that big screen action, reliving those Mode 7 glory days all over again.
08/14/2009, Check out this DIY mod that will definitely move you to ask, “How much?” The Nintendo SNES Portable will see Nintendo’s SNES console outfitted with buttons from a discarded (but working) PSOne controller alongside a really detailed skinning job. Definitely one that will bring back pleasant memories of yore during the summer holidays where Zelda was all you looked forward to, forsaking other summer events like the Superbowl and baseball […]
07/02/2009, The SNES has been turned into a variety of mods over the years, but this one from Marshall takes the cake – with some swearing it to be a secret official product. Dubbed the Supertendo, this professional made custom handheld design works great with the SNES cartridge fitting in snugly behind. Too bad this is a one-of-a-kind portable console that won’t see action anytime soon.
