Handheld N64 is Awesome, Non-Ergonomic


The Nintendo Sixtyfree Lite-R: the past of gaming, futurized in handheld form. While playing this shrunken, portable N64 might be a challenge, particularly when it comes to, say, some of the console’s excellent first-person shooters, it certainly looks good.

Cartridges slip elegantly into the back of this compact console. It’s so small, however, that there’s no room for internal batteries; when you want to play, you’ve got rely on external power. The sacrifices we make for size.

    2 things. As far as batteries go, couldn’t you have an external battery? like you could just wear it on your waist or something. Also, could you use just a PSP screen? I know it would distort the image a bit, but they’re SOO cheap on ebay.
