This Game Boy has seen better days ⊟

Nate-Alig meant to paint this and create a whole series of marred consoles, but it sounds like an injury kept him from completing the project. Presumably the Game Boy still works — I mean, if the system can survive a Gulf War bombing and still load up Tetris fine, these nicks shouldn’t faze the old brick.

Tiny Galaga cabinet made from a DS ⊟

One DS Lite, one copy of Namco Museum DS, and … a ton of work later, redditor button-masher created a miniature arcade cabinet. I’d like to direct your attention to the tiny coin door, with its tiny lights, and the exquisitely miniature little joystick. Amazing. (Via @Greenspeak)

Wicked Circle Pad Pro mods
There are a lot of insane homemade mods people have made for the Circle Pad Pro in Japan — you can see several dozen in just this 2ch thread.
Speaking of the accessory, Nintendo is now selling the Circle Pad Pro XL in the U.S. through its online shop for $19.99, which Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate players should appreciate. The company told Joystiq, however, that it has “no plans to sell this accessory at other retail locations at this time.”

BMO Boy by Clog Two

The other chap next to the adorable Adventure Time portable is MO-Death, whom Clog Two describes as “a circuit board being, that awaits BMO’s last breath.” But… I don’t want BMO to die ever.

That guy who made pipe-fitted a custom speaker solution for a 3DS has upgraded his sound setup with a stand and more complicated metal speaker things.

Laugh all you want at this mod’s silliness, but it sounds way better than the built-in speakers. Yeah, you could just use the headphone port to hook this up to a stereo when you want to jam with Theatrhythm, but whatevs.

Upgrade your 3DS’s sound with this wacky homemade solution — all you need is some copper tubes, plastic clips, metal funnels, and silicon sheets. It’s much cheaper than buying a speaker accessory, and it doesn’t require an extra power source. Japanese instructions available here.

Here’s a silly way to jury rig a physical directional pad onto the virtual camera controls in Monster Hunter Tri-G (if you’re not using the Circle Pad Pro/Frankenstick)!

That blue gel-like material is a "shock absorbable pad" commonly used in Japan under furniture, electronics, and appliances to prevent them from tipping over during an earthquake. They’re pretty cheap, too.

On the topic of the Circle Pad Pro, remember those reports about it having a battery life of around 480 hours on a single AAA, according to the Japanese manual? Someone actually tore down the peripheral, examined its innards, measured its power consumption, and found that it could last quite a bit longer — conceivably up to 540 hours of continuous use! That’s a lot of Monster Hunter.

3DS systems hidden James Bond-style inside hollowed-out Game Boys. Goteking, the undisputed master of putting game junk inside other game junk randomly, made two custom 3DS cases out of vintage Game Boys, one with hinges on the side and one that opens at the top. He even made fake screens and a fake cartridge to complete the effect.

I love that one of the Game Boys he used is transparent. Like, he went to all that effort knowing the whole time that the 3DS would be perfectly visible at all times. That’s the kind of extra-weird, counterintuitive touch that makes a Goteking project.

Mega Man Game Boy by Hyaki Ikari (click for a larger version), who modded the system with blue buttons, a blue backlight, a custom-printed screen, Pro Sound RCA output, and a Pro Sound 1/8” TRS stereo jack.
Having the Blue Bomber sticking his arm into the screen looks tight, but it probably doesn’t make for the best gaming experience — considering the chiptune-specific mods, this is probably only for dudes who plan to tinker with LSDJ or other Game Boy music stuff.
Ikari has this piece and a custom Toad Game Boy up for auction on eBay, which both end in three days.
