…by announcing that I plan to build no more XBox 360 laptops. I have been working on a second one and I’ll show it on the site when it’s finished, but with the time required and considering other projects in the works the 360 laptop is just not something I’m interested in these days. To be honest I’m getting… hm… weary of laptops in general and when I finished the new ones I have coming it’ll be time to move onto something else.
Making multiple copies of something is better suited to something simple (and cheaper) like an Atari VCS, or perhaps a NES-on-a-chip based unit.
On this same token I also do not have, nor plan to do/make any of the following:
- N64 portables or plans. That system breaks if you look at it wrong, very hacker-unfriendly. Just buy a DS.
- PS2 portables or plans. Much like the Xbox 360, too difficult to make worth repeating.
Remember there’s plenty of instructions and plans in my book and I sell kits for them as well. This is doable since it’s all been standardized, if I had to create custom kits for every person who emailed they price would be substantially more.
If you’d like me to take a stab at a project you’ve suggested the rule of thumb is to think of something really far out there that might peak my interest. Slogging out more PS2 / 360 portables… not interesting.
