NES Console Modded as Retro Gaming PC, With Video

The User cbutters on Youtube has modified his original Nintendo Entertainment System into a real working Windows based PC. As you can tell from the picture above and the video after the break, you’ll notice that the casing looks exactly like a regular NES, but what’s inside is completely different.

Underneath the hood of the console, is a fully-functional PC that runs Windows XP and using the gaming emulator called GameEx. To turn on the PC simply press the on button on the NES case (red light even comes on), the PC will automatically start and open GameEX, which has almost every NES, SNES, and N64 game in it’s liberty.

To keep the retro feel of the system, he rewired the NES underneath the hood to create a USB Hub, which gives him the ability to use the NES controllers or even an Xbox 360 wired controller for more complex games like Super Smash Bros. He even went as far to connect an S-video from the PC to the old-school component video, to preserve the crappy blurry images that most of us grew up with.

Check out the awesome video after the break.

Thanks technabob
