Reading Time: < 1 minute

This may not be the first portable N64 system, but it’s definitely no slouch. Created by “bungle” of Bacman forums, this game controller-shaped creation boasts an ample 3.5-inch display, Rumble Pak compatibility, 4-hours of battery life, and a GameCube analog stick to finish things off. Supposedly, these will be mass produced and sold, but there has been no official word yet.

The N64 sold 32.93 million units worldwide, and in 2009, it was named the 9th greatest video game console by IGN. One of its technical drawbacks is a limited texture cache, which can hold textures of limited dimensions and reduced color depth, which must be stretched to cover larger in-game surfaces. Its vintage ROM cartridges are constrained by small capacity and high production expenses, compared to the compact disc format used by its chief competitors.
