Bacteria Gives Life to Mutant Mini Multi Arcade System

Bacteria Gives Life to Mutant Mini Multi Arcade System
I have a dream. And that dream is that one day a single portable gaming console can play all of my favorite arcade classics (on a decent sized screen). Thanks to a modder going by the name “Bacteria”, that day is today. Bacteria’s Mini Multi Arcade system mashes up a bunch of those TV plug ‘n play game systems and crams them all into interchangeable cartridges (OK, some of these are more like small bricks) that can be plugged into a single portable. Instead of the crummy “joystick” that most of those Plug ‘N Play systems use, Bacteria replaced those with a far more usable D-pad controller instead.

NES Controller Coffee Table: Drool.
This has got to be my favorite piece of furniture, ever. Not only does this coffee table look like a giant NES controller, it’s actually fully functional! Lovingly constructed by Kyle Downes of Ultra Awesome, the table also offers ample storage for all of his other gaming systems. What’s the last time you saw an N64, PS2, a SEGA Nomad and a Famicom inside of an NES Controller?

Cool Boy Game Console: Call the Copyright Cops

Cool Boy Game Console: Call the Copyright Cops
The latest gadget to crawl out from the seamy underbelly of the Chinese gaming underground. Not to be confused with the GameBoy, the Cool Boy is a portable game system that plays a variety of old school 8-bit and 16-bit console titles. From what I can tell, the Cool Boy is one of those systems that plays emulated NES and SEGA console games, and the only way to get them is through questionable packages like this 120-in-1 cartridge that clearly includes copyrighted works from major game studios like EA, Nintendo and Disney. The cartridge claims to include all sorts of classics like Donkey Kong, Galaga, Tetris, Xevious and Lode Runner among others, but I strongly suspect that the games are either knock-offs or illegal bootlegs.

Myracer Portable Console Plays Flash Games

Myracer Portable Console Plays Flash Games
The latest pocket gaming system isn’t from Nintendo or Sony, but from an upstart little Korean outfit called MyRacer. Their new MF101 portable looks like another media player on the surface, but under the hood, it’s a pocket-sized arcade system. Sure, it’ll play music and video files in a variety of formats, but the MyRacer will also play a number of Adobe Flash-based games such as those from Korea’s Play4U or Com2uS catalog.

Px-3600 Console Fakes Xbox, PS2, PS3, Wtf?
Just the other day, I showed you guys a really crummy PS3 knock-off, but I think this videogaming oddity surely trumps that one. This strange little console can’t decide whether it wants to be an Xbox, a PlayStation 2, 3, or something else altogether.

Mini Polystation 3 Mocks Playstation 3

Mini Polystation 3 Mocks Playstation 3
You’ve gotta hand it to those cheap Chinese knock-off manufacturers. At least they attempt to keep up with the latest gaming consoles when they crank out their crap. Case in point, this awful PS3 copy known as the PolyStation 3. While it may look slightly like a real PlayStation 3, under the hood, this Mini PS3 is completely incapable of playing anything resembling real video games.
