  1. I thought they already had a console: the iPhone.
  2. Two years? Wait until you learn about the Amiga CD32.....
  3. It'd be even better if you can make this work on a GameCube, Wii, and Wii U.
  4. Recently I just posted a photo essay of some of my gaming and movie related stuff, plus an event I was a part of that had Atari co-founder Nolan Bushnell as the guest of honor, over at imgur that some of you may get a kick out of.
  5. Not going to stop the modding but this will buy some time to find ways around things when they do finally get around to pulling the plug.
  6. The best way to keep this thing alive it to keep it as cool as possible. Considering the poor design choices Sony made with the early units this is harder than necessary. I'm sure someone has made a watercooler for it. I know Sony made a way to seal the chips to keep their liquid metal paste fresh on the PS5. I wonder if something like that can help on the PS3.
  7. The PS3 modding scene is going to ramp up quite a bit now as the modders try to find solutions to these various problems. I'm anxious to see what they come up with. I'm going to guess that Sony is also no longer going to do system updates for the PS3 after the shutdown. When somebody finally jailbreaks the last update then I would imagine the floodgates will open as Sony will no longer do anything to the system. Again, this is similar to what happened to the Nintendo Wii.
  8. I'm sure that people are already working on putting all of those titles and patches on the net for downloading just as it was done for the Nintendo Wii. I don't know much about PS3 softmodding right now but I hope there is one that will allow you to use those downloaded titles and patches without getting your machine and account banned by Sony when connected to their services. This also brings up the question if and when they will no longer allow you to hook up the PS3 to PSN for Trophy acquisition and upload. I don't think they'll shut that part down but, given this current situation, it is a fair question to ask.
  9. So.....what do you guys think about what's going on with their stocks? Pretty wild.
  10. Seeing the topic title I can't help but think "why male models"?
  11. And going Fat will also give you the option of using hard drives and SSDs if you want to go that route.
  12. You know, a solution to this is to make a new 5200 joypad but make it based off of the Jaguar joypad. Somebody has already found a way to use the current style of analog stick that today's game consoles use so replace the D-pad with that and switch out the Jaguar keypad with the 5200's. Problem solved. Oh, and make a digital D-pad and D-stick version for those who want to go the digital route. I mean, there are already Pro Controller repros - why not alter it for the 5200. I think it would do very well.
  13. If it is inexpensive but has a lot of power then I would think that people would buy it but I think a lot of them would end up getting modded in some way to make it into a more traditional looking console. However, it has been pointed out that the chicken warmer concept is a good way of dealing with the excess heat - perhaps using it for more that just chicken, like popcorn (also already suggested). If modded right you could use it for scented wax and at least make your work area smell nice.
