    I have this broken copy of metroid for NES and I was thinking of what I could do with it.

    Well I could put a laptop HDD into it and make a new sticker that says "NES hard disk drive" or something fancy and retro?

    Would anyone want if I did a good job?

    Or a USB hub?

    Eeeh?


    Knock yourself out I suppose [​IMG]. You could make one out of it, add some rubber and such.... don't know if it would do you any good though [​IMG]. You could make an SSD out of it, that would be kinda fun I suppose [​IMG]. Not sure but I'd say the cartridge should fit a 5,25 inch bay. If you also have a NES lying around and some mini ITX machine (or old laptop) then making a disc out of it would be cool: you could make multiple discs which you can swap to run different kind of games (say a cartridge for MAME, one for old dos games, etc.). Pointless, but kinda fun [​IMG].

    You should do that with a 250gb SSD and put LOADS of emus and ROMS [​IMG]
    I have every single NES rom and that is less than 200mb....
