    Bleh, it still has to be plugged in all the time so it's not really portable.

    "Portable" is sort of a misnomer... it's a 7" screen and Gamecube controller glued on top of a Wii. That makes it roughly 10"x6"x3", certainly not pocketsized. It also appears to require its power adapter no matter what mode you're using it in. Still, it's a pretty interesting hack; I'd be interested in seeing if it could be streamlined further (if the designer was a modder, perhaps a flash- or usb-based internal storage drive could supplant the need for a disc drive, which would probably cut the weight of this thing in half).

    Reminds me of Benhecks mods, although a Wii portable certainly wouldn't work due to the nature of the controller. That's why his PS360 laptops work- the controllers don't need to be constantly moved.

    lmao. really? as others have already said, this wii isnt portable at all. it's footprint is 2X bigger than the normal wii footprint. wouldnt you expect it to be smaller? also, how teh hell are you supposed to play a portable wii and play game that require any of the other controllers beside the built in one? you have to set it down. then all you have is a bigass wii with a tiny screen laying in a angle that makes it hard to see the tiny screen while you try to aim the wiimote at it to play your games.

    is the GC controller hardwired to the first port? if not, they you can sell it as a wii with a built in savemiifrii.

    Doesn't look very portable to me, they've just glued an LCD screen to the front of a Wii.

    [edit] Why are there two posts exactly the same about this?

    The name "Wii Mod" is a bit misleading since he hasn't actually touched the wii, an accessory mod would be more truthful

    and a gamecube controller. this thing is useless as being portable i just picked up my wii and it's pretty heavy it might not seem heavy but try holding it for a while it will get worse holding it. plus there's also an lcd screen on this thing making it even more heavier [​IMG]

    I think everyone getting a little mixed up

    when they mean Portable they DON'T mean 'easy to carry-&-play'

    Definition of the word 'Portable' is....
    Which technically this 'Mod' is.. It's easy to move from place to place (although the Wii in itself is 'portable' as well - just need a bit more setting up with cable than this)

    The examples in the quote above are virtually in the same situation - you can easily move it around but you will STILL need to plug in cables to actually use it

    a good wii portable would remove the wii caseing install a 2.5" HDD mold a new case to fit it all in and add a battery(the gamecube one could work well) but the wii is mostly useless as you need to hold the wiimote... which needs you to not be holding the console aswell
