    Occurs on any-game even if the cartridge is brand-new, and console freezes after aproximately 30 or 1 minute after turning ON the console. I cleaned all the console inside including the cartridge slot.

    I suggest opening the system and doing a complete cleanout. The cartridge connector itself may be damaged. There are fixes for that but it involves soldering

    I wanna ask what's cheaper at this point I would assume soldiering would me more expensive than buying a new console all together if one doesn't have the experience before hand.

    Learning soldering
    Learning soldering, earning soldering skills, and change damaged part (DIY); So I think the CPU is damaged after testing everything meticulously. As far there's not so much knowledge on how to fix or handle this, buying another N64 will be a second option.

    probably at home
    Is your shielding still in place, it sounds like a heating issue.
