And why not?
The game’s guts have been replaced with a 250GB external hard drive. Just imagine all the NES roms you could stick on here!
It’s from Etsy, the Internet marketplace for all things homemade. Hit the jump to buy your own and make all your friends jealous.
These fun little hard drives are constructed by someone that goes by “8BitMemory” on Etsy.com (find his shop here). He takes the outer shells of our favorite games of yesteryear and fills the insides with a hiding place for all your illegal music downloads and pornography. Neat!
What’s more, you can pick your desired hard drive size (choose from 250GB, 320GB, 400GB, 500GB, or 750GB) and choose whatever game you want to serve as the case. If he doesn’t have it, he’ll find it! You can choose from TMNT, Battletoads, and Ninja Gaiden on his site, but he points out that no game is off limits. Also, you can send 8BitMemory your own cartridges and he’ll hack them up for you and mail them back, new and improved.
The prices seem a little steep at around $120 each, but these are big hard drives and the aesthetic value is through the roof.
If you don’t need a hard drive, 8BitMemory turns NES games into clocks, too!
What’s more, the clocks are only $19.99. Can’t beat that with a stick. Also, free shipping! Looks like it’s “time” to nerd out a little. Ha ha… ha.
