Hailrazer is plainly a fan of the Nintendo 64 and GameCube, however his jobs have kept the systems as different beasts. Previously, that is. His most current mod places a Nintendo 64 into a GameCube’s GameBoy Player add-on, linking the audio, power and video to those of the more modern system. Gamers just need to plug in appropriate controllers and flip a switch to play whichever console best causes a nostalgia trip. About the only trouble is the absence of room for an appropriate Nintendo 64 cartridge slot, which effectively mandates utilizing a not-quite-above-board storage format rather. Given that the two-in-one console is strictly a personal labor of love, it’s still rather the accomplishment– and it ensures that Hailrazer’s inner circle will not need to take a trip far for a journey down memory lane.

If there’s been a race in the Pico-ITX world to reach full-size PCs, VIA simply leapt ahead by a few bounds with the EPIA-P910. The little COMPUTER mates one of VIA’s 1GHz QuadCore E-Series processors with a VX11H media core to manage the kinds of procedures that would break almost any additional system its size: stereoscopic 3D displays and DirectX 11 3D graphics are completely within the realm of opportunity. Furthermore, there’s an unusual quantity of expansion headroom contrasted to many of the P910′s similarly small equivalents, such as the 8GB RAM ceiling and support for both HDMI 1.4 a and USB 3.0. You’ll need to contact VIA if you desire to locate out exactly how much it costs to work the new EPIA into an embedded PC, and it’s more likely to be headed to corporate customers than to homebrew projects. We’re still looking forward to the shot of graphic adrenaline, whether it’s in a tiny COMPUTER or a shop display.

Sure, we’ve all thought about how nice it would be to have our PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles in the same enclosure. But, as many similar thoughts go, we left it at that. Not content with letting a good thought simmer, Reddit user timofend accepted the challenge and built himself a gaming mega-machine — he stuffed the new slim model of Microsoft’s console into a PC tower alongside an older 80GB PS3. Looking to save some funds in the process, the über-gamer skipped out on a liquid cooling system — but he notes that when both machines are running simultaneously, they each hover around 100 degrees Farhenheit (38 degrees Celsius). Hey, we’re not complaining… but really, timofend, can we please see a NES / Dreamcast / O.G. PlayStation combo in your next masterpiece? To take a peek under the hood, hit the gallery below.

Need a tiny USB 3.0 flash drive? Who doesn’t, right? Well PQI’s latest is the smallest USB 3.0 yet. The Traveling Disk intelligent Drive U819V –lovely name — is fully backwards compatible with USB 2.0, but when plugged into a lovely blue USB 3.0 slot can transfer data at 5Gbps. Pricing wasn’t announced, but it will likely only cost slightly more than its lazy USB 2.0 counterparts. [PQI via SlashGear]
Don’t call it a netbook, capiche? Gateway has just outed a new 11.6-incher over in Japan, with the EC19C-A52C/S boasting some of the most impressive specifications we’ve seen in a unit this compact. A 1.33GHz dual-core Core i5-470UM processor sits at the heart of this here lappie, and it’s accompanied by a 320GB hard drive, 1366 x 768 resolution display, 2GB of RAM, HDMI / VGA outputs, an inbuilt Ethernet port and a six-cell battery that should last half a dozen hours (on a good day). As expected, you’ll also find a 1.3 megapixel webcam, 4-in-1 card reader, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) and Bluetooth 3.0 (a nice touch, we’ll confess), with sales expected to start right about now in the Land of the Rising Sun. As for pricing? Try ¥65,000, or right around $ 775. Told you it didn’t quite fit the netbook category.
