Even today, NES aka Famicom games are still popular with gamers. We’ve seen people come up with a variety of alternative ways of getting their NES fix. You can run an emulator, buy a third party portable or even hack one yourself. Nintendo Age forum member Silius chose the latter. But instead of portability or a modern design, he chose to preserve his console’s original beauty. Behold!

Silius console also has built-in speakers so it really needs is a power outlet. Silius did make it so its screen can be turned off, which would come in handy if he ever wants to connect the NES to a TV. Here’s a brief demo of the console:
