I wonder if the pcb could fit into a case as small as PCEngine?  Might be cheaper to produce than using a bigger shell.  I've always liked the SuperGrafx case perhaps a cartridge opening could be added?

Nooooo...

 

Please don't destroy those wonderful little PCe consoles. One of the greatest underappreciated system from 4th generation, not trying to tread on Coleco fans but destroying these great little wonders would be a crime IMO... :sad:

 

I may pick up a Coregrafx at some point to complement my US Turbografx system. I already own numerous PC Engine cards, playable through an adapter on the US system.

I think the plan is for new case not used ones.

Yes, but you were basically suggesting otherwise with a "wouldn't it be cool if we put PCB X in case Y" scenario.  It's been done before, and did not turn out well.

idiot? :dunce:

 

I only meant as a joke, not an insult. I do feel we shouldn't be trying to harvest the shells from old consoles though. Modding or upgrading vintage tech is one thing, gutting them is another. I think a PCe size and form factor would be sexy though. :)

Holidays are upon us ... sort of ... anyway do we have Prometheus?
