Nintendo 64 Rom Copier


Okay, so it's not really a game console but I figure this machine is interesting enough to be in anyone's console collection. It's a rom copier that fits in the expansion slot on the bottom of your N64. With it you can download a ROM from the internet and play it on your TV. For the super computer smart among you this machine will enable you to write your own N64 game and burn it to a CD or even to a real cartridge. Comes standard with 128 megabits of RAM which can be upgraded to 256 for about $160. Comes with an 8X CD drive that will let you play game compilations, music CDs, or MPEG movies. Main BIOS is stored in Flash ROM, eliminating the need for costly upgrades. All the programming tools come pre-installed.

So what does this mean to you? It means you can back-up, play, and copy N64 games, write your own games, "hack" games, etc. Perfect gift for the hacker or mad scientist in the family. These machines are available on various Hong Kong Websites for about $150-$200 depending. However like all Copier stuff it will disappear as soon as Nintendo gets word so get'm fast before they're gone.
