Ben is a lifelong Nintendo fan who likes to build websites, and make video games. He buys way too much Lego.
This is so cool – a computer geeks wet dream. It’s a kit, that let’s you build your own games console, and then program the games on it.
It comes with a bunch of peripherals and tutorials so even the novices can get going quickly, provided you’re that way inclined. No doubt the games won’t be the best – there’ll be no HALO beaters here, but who cares? They’re your games.
I am really tempted by it, the biggest problem is the cost – not so much the price of the kit, but the additional cost of the import tax – I’ve been burned by Think Geek before. I wish they’d release it in the UK (along with this, this and this).
