    Wow, awesome. I didn't know they could cut up a PS2 mainboard like that and still make it work. Impressive.

    I've seen the video as well, seen other projects similar as well.
    I thinks it's extremely neat, tho I'd 3D print a more controller shaped box.

    He should put in a raspi with smb share because game loading would be much faster.

    This is indeed a real thing. Portablizers cut up consoles like the wii, n64 and ps2 to turn them into portable handheld units. Bitbuilt is currently the meeting ground for this community.
    There are reasons why he chose not to do that. First off, modeling something with the organic geometry of a controller is very difficult to begin with. Secondly, 3d printing would require a flat surface to lay on, so printing one that is so many round edges would require a lot of support material. This support material leaves behind a surface that take quite a bit of effort to clean up. And finally, a boxy shape is the most effective use of internal area. There are so many components that go into making a portable that all take up space. By making it rounder and controller shaped with indents and such, the console will need to be made much larger.

    No. Not at all.

    I love those portable versions of consoles. I've been reading a lot of forums/thread about portable PS2's and Wii and they all look awesome imo.

    Because there are a lot of parts that go into a portable. Go look at his worklog and see how crammed for space everything is on the inside.

    I forgot
    For the battery, probably. That thing doesn't run off of sunshines and rainbows, if he wanted it to last longer than 10 minutes you're gonna need a pretty hefty battery. I only skimmed the video, but it doesn't look like he showed the power source, it's likely something along the lines of a laptop battery.

    Nope
    These are what he used
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/121611468285?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

    Thats all he used for batterys, along with the Regs.

    Because when you trim something you dont need as much power as you used to,
    For example; You can run a wii off of 5V perfectly, after trimming it.

    He used 2 large Li-Po batteries from batteryspace.com, (not the 18650s @DeoNaught linked, although they are very popular for most portables) with protection circuitry and custom regulators to power the battery.

    I'm not saying he should do it.
    I'm only saying I would do it.
