FC Mobile – Portable NES Handheld

FC Mobile NES Handheld

FC Mobile NES Handheld

If you're like me you have some nes games laying around, so the idea of being able to load them into a handheld is definitely appealing. The FC Mobile comes in a few different color combinations. A classic themed Red/White combo and a Silver/Black option. Its an import so the best place to find it is on ebay and a new FC Mobile will set you back $40 -$60 bucks. More after the jump.

Why mess with a good thing?

Why mess with a good thing?

I'm confused as to why they choose to layout the controls they way they did, perhaps to avoid patent issues that hadn't expired. The start button is on the left and the select on the right; the B A layout is reversed so all that hardwired button mashing skill is not so helpful. The angles are also not as handy for movements that require close timing. The control layout ends up being the  FC Mobiles biggest weakness. Some people have gone so far as to rewire the A, B buttons so they're in a more standard layout.

Pros
-Built in stereo speakers with decent volume
-2.4" screen
-TV out option with video & audio plugs.
Cons
-No AC option so you better like burning through AA's.
-The controller set up is off and will feel awkward compared to a classic nes controller.
