Do you still remember the superb and legendary console in the era of the 2000s? That is right, it is PS 2!
The console has also given so many memories to you who used to be very spirited after school. Directly hanging out in front of the TV, and you who must be willing to leave allowance and line at the PS rental.
Yet, almost all of the gamers have sweet memories with this one legendary console. Even though it has been going down by the time, this one home console seems to inspire someone who still wants to play it but is restricted by the time and place because of his excitement so he does not have time to play at the home.
In a thread on Reddit, just now the acc owner with the nickname darkwingmod, shared his work of turn this legendary home console into a portable console ala PSP or PS Vita style.
As reported by the Engadget site, darkwingmod makes his own case design, then modifies the PS 2 slim engine which is then fuzed into the case.
It is completed with various supporting components, such as LCD screen panels, to the buttons that function as the controllers.
The project he has been working on since 2013 has just been completed and has been tested to play more than 10 PS 2 game titles. It can run normally as you play them on a normal PS 2 console version.
The portable console, named PIS 2, is also equipped with two memory card slots for saving the games and the other slot for installing Free MC Boot.
Think about that this portable console is not equipped with storage in the form of a hard drive or optical drive for reading and storing PS 2 games, so darkwingmod utilizes the Rasberry Pi2 connected to Ethernet to connect to the SMB Server where the PS 2 game location is stored.
So if you want to play more game titles, you must first transfer them to the SMB Server. The battery of the PIS 2 is claimed to last more or less 90 minutes if nonstop played.
If you are interested in trying to assemble it, darkwingmod also shares what is needed to assemble PIS 2. It should be appreciated that the work of darkwingmod is given that it takes a long time to complete PIS 2 so that it can function optimally as it is today.
