    Better plan: Just do it in China and skip the lawsuit entirely. Unless you decide to copy a Chinese company's stuff, that is. I've heard that they don't like that.

    rule 71 if you want your rapping carrier to go down in flames sell a video game system thats preloaded with warez (I hope he did this as an FU to them for all the fan games they killed (besides being an iillegal cash grab he would've been better off selling drugs)

    Nintendo releases a china 'mp3/mp4 player' with all of Soulija Boy albums and music videos on it, they sue each other, and settle out of court. :)

    I wish I had gotten to this site earlier to read about this - all the possible responses to it are taken.

    I guess all that's left to ask is when the hell "Soulija" Boy added an "i" to that name? Even "eye" doesn't have an "i" in it!

    Well he had to do something, given he has absolutely no talent in the music industry.

    He wanted attention, and he's gonna get it - from ninty's lawyers. I'm gonna enjoy seeing his metaphorical ass whooping.

    If he launched them with ROMs on em, that's balls... If no ROMs came on them, then who cares? Let him live in the moment and get that bread.

    Why is it spelled "Soulija" here?
    I googled it and everyone else spells it "Soulja".

    Surely he wouldn't be stupid enough to launch a console with a shit ton of Nintendo, Sony, Sega, etc games on it, right? Does he not have a lawyer, who will warn him of how bat shit insane his idea is, and that he'll get sued into the poor house?

    Nintendo works for my dad
    of course he did. He just took some cheap chinese knock of consoles, bought them in bulk on alibaba, marked up the price about 200% and sells them under his name.

    I'd guess he's not even repackaging these things.

    If you take a look at the shopping poage of soulja boy, you'll find these are pretty much exactly these two items:

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/201...-Video-Game-Retro-Handheld/1000005649678.html
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Ret...-800-Classical-Games-for-PS1/32869617870.html

    even his "SouljaWatch" looks like a generic chinese smartwatch available for $5:

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Sli...SIM-TF-Camera-Smartwatch-For/32854809679.html

    PS: The RS-97 (handheld one) is even half decent once you install a custom dingux firmware.

    EDIT:

    basically everything in his shop is just some generic item from china marked up about 100%. These are not designed for, by or with soulja boy. The only thing I wasn't able to find was his SouljaHeadphones, there are just way too many generic headphones out there, not going to bother with this.

    "SouljaPhone": https://www.aliexpress.com/item/HOM...Display-Octa-core-13MP-Front/32859866252.html
    "SouljaPods": https://www.aliexpress.com/item/I7s...ireless-For-Iphone-For-Apple/32933079187.html
    "SouljaPad": https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4-3...a-tab-gift-for-baby-and-kids/32719790879.html
    "SouljaHeadphones": https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Fre...c-Support-TF-Card-for-iPhone/32757109028.html

    I can’t wait to see if Nintendo really has the balls for this. Will they sue him just like they did with rom sites or will they fear the fans?

    Sue him and then make Nintendo direct in wich you take a shit on the console.

    Buy 'em off Aliexpress then sell as if they were your own. Hope that Nintendo, SEGA and Sony are getting their lawsuits ready to take him to court. haha

    Precisely. Some people are too naive.

    Oh, the colorful, MLP, obnoxious 'rapper' or whatever he calls himself.

    Guess you never heard of Aliexpress, GearBest, Alibaba, Rosegal, eBay, Amazon or other online retailers. These are pirated consoles with "800-in-1" games.

    He's asking to get sued and he surely deserves. I've not heard the name "Soulja Boy" in a long time so this is how he's rebooting himself. lol

    Your mom's basement.
    This has got to be the most bizarre thing I've read about today. Is Soulja Boy trying to be relevant again?
