Amazingly enough, even though I have repeatedly said I am not making any more Xbox 360, PS2 or N64 portables, people keep asking for them! It kind of reminds me of all the times I’ve emailed CNN.com and ordered a cheeseburger – it never comes but I keep asking.
That said, here is the official price list for these always-popular requests, in US dollars:
Xbox 360 Laptop – $10,000
PS2 Portable – $5000
N64 Portable – $5000
Dreamcast Portable – $8000
Create and send you plans to build [insert project here] – $3000
These are the absolute minimum prices I will accept for these projects. If it’s too much (which is the point) then by all means build it yourself, read my Engadget how-tos, or buy my book. Not trying to be rude (but fully aware I sound that way) I just want to drive the point home. Perhaps someone on our forums might build one for you? They have the skills.
I enjoy making prototype projects but sometimes they just become so difficult I don’t want to duplicate them or it’s not worth my time. Which is exactly the same reason there won’t be a Port Washington 2 or probably any more films at all.
Doesn’t anyone care about the old Atari 2600 anymore?
