What to do with free game gear?

Fun & Games Technology

Ps2Hunter is looking for some ideas for the discarded game gear he found, post up in the comments! – “My friend and I had an unusually lucky day and we got a lot of free electronics. Some of them working and some not. Here’s what we got: N64 – working, original playstation – working PS2 – works sometimes, Gameboy pocket – not working, gamecube – almost new condition and working and working we already have all of these so we were wondering if you would have any suggestions on how we could mod them or what we could make them into. it doesnt necessarily have to be all of them together. we were thinking about making the PS2 sphere but the PS2 doesnt work all the time and there isnt a step by step instruction on how to make the PS2 sphere.”

    Well, you could always start at Ben Heck’s site for ideas on making some of those portable.

    IMHO, it sounds like the GC is the best find. You could put GC Linux on it and see what you can do from there. Maybe a car computer? YMMV – I’m not a big gamer; the only modern console I have any familiarity with is XBox classic.

    You could make a unit that easly switches between all platforms with a touch of a button.

    You could make a unit that easly switches between all platforms with a touch of a button. you could even go as far as making a cross-platform controler. I’m thinking that xBox and PS2 have the same amount of buttons, so you could use your favorite one. It would be really cool to make a single CD slot, that would take the CD and put it in the correct spot without even thinking about what platform the game is for. It sounds great, but I havent a clue how to make it choose the correct CD or even make a controler cross-platform. Let me know what you think
