Suitcase Makes Your Console Portable

1 min read


GAEMS, Gaming and Entertainment Mobile Systems are working on a portable suitcase that turns any Xbox in to a portable gaming system – which they took pleasure in showing off at E3.

If you’re the sort who travels a lot, but absolutely has to take your console gaming with you, the $250 its expected to cost may be a worthwhile investment.

The case features a 15” screen, a whole bunch of speakers and place for your console – all encased in dense dense polyurethane to protect your tech from bumps.

At the moment the prototype only first the Xbox 360, but they’re planning on releasing a universal model to accommodate the Xbox 360 S as well as the PS3 Slim. The current design doesn’t have any place for controllers, but they’re planning on supplying purchasers with a carrying case for those.

There’s still a lot of work to be done on the design – at the moment it pinches cords when closed and has an unsightly power cord sticking out of it – but the company says they’ll finalise the design based on gamer feedback.

I can’t say this is something I’d ever use – when I go away I prefer to forgo technology – but it’ll certainly have its audience. What do you think? is this something you’d shell out 2 and a half grand for?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
