Portable consoles are becoming more and more important in the market. Steam Deck has now arrived with great force allowing players to enjoy titles such as Elden Ring or Resident Evil Village from anywhere. Always with a plug nearby to recharge batteries, yes. Nintendo Switch has been a strong blow on the table, and there is more and more demand for these devices (the growth of the mobile market is evident). Now, after the GameCube’s 20th anniversary, user GingerOfOz has made a dream come true: a portable GameCube.
Based on a fake model made by a user under the name of Demon more than 15 years ago, and which circulated for several years on the Internet, gaining great popularity totally inspired by GameBoy Advance SP, the aforementioned engineer and content creator, GingerOfOz, has made that fake model now come to life and can be used seamlessly. With some limitations and adjustments, yes, but anyone would love to have this in their hands to be able to enjoy true classics with the old buttons of the console.
It is a very complex process
In the video that we have left you at the top of these lines, it is explained how the creation process has been and all the modifications that have had to be made so that this fake GameCube, become something real and palpable which can be used.
What is being used to move video games is a Wii plate, adjusted, with the GameCube retro catalog inside. Obviously it has not been possible to maintain the disc player due to size, so it remains there as an ornamentation element. The screen works at 480p and there’s even headphone support, with the machine having custom software that adds the typical splash screen. The battery life, yes, lasts only an hour and a half.
