Nintendo NES Windows Pc Spotted on Ebay

by


This wouldn’t be the first time that I’ve seen a Nintendo NES console turned into a Windows PC, but it is the first time you can buy one for yourself.

The maker of this beautifully crafted NES PC casemod has put it up for sale to the highest bidder.

While the system specs aren’t anything to write home about (a 1GHz CPU, 256MB of RAM and a 40GB hard drive), they’re more than up to the task of running most of the game emulation software that the builder made the system for. As a matter of fact, the seller is including controllers from the NES, SNES, N64 and PS2, as well as the adapters necessary to use them on the PC. And since the storage device is a DVD drive, you can even play movies on it.

The builder of the system claims to have spent over €800 (nearly $1200 USD) on parts, and over 50 hours of blood, sweat and tears to build a properly-cooled Windows PC inside the cramped confines of the classic 8-bit console. At the time that I wrote this, bids were only up to €101 (about $149 USD), but the auction runs until December 9, so I’d expect the price to go way up from here.

You can check out the full auction details on eBay France (English translation here). The seller does say that he’ll ship internationally (for a premium), so even if you’re not in France, you could still score this unique system.

    Hello,

    I’m the creator (and therefore the seller) of this NES :D

    It’s right that it’s not the first NES turned into a PC, but I think it’s the first one to keep the NES controller ports which are still usables (as you can see on the video)! And of course as you said, I’m selling with it USB adapters for others controllers (SNES, Playstation and N64).

    Thanks you for this post, I’m surprised by the success of this project lol! The auction is now at 615

    fcpht, let me know when you figure out a way to cram an Xbox 360 or a PS3 into an NES case, and I’ll be first in line.

    In the mean time, great work!

  3. theDave says:

    Sorry, but you are not the first to keep the original controller ports working. I did it on my NES PC mod, 4 years ago.
    You did a nice job though!

    retro nintendo is an elitist hipster who doesn’t remember having to blow dust out of cartidge each time before you play a game.

    When was the last time you had to blow dust off a rom file? Oh wait, you don’t, because roms are digital and hence better than 1985 tech.

    Oh snap burn! Whatchu got? Whatchu got? Booyakasha!
