Follow ElectronAsh (@AshEvans81) for some very cool retro console modding projects that he has been working on recently!

It is one thing to take a retro console, gut it, put it in a nice case with lights, throw-in a flashcart, or other things, but ElectronAsh aka @AshEvans81 takes it to a whole new advanced level, he desolders the original chipset of let's say for example an Nintendo 64, then reballs it, resolders it onto a new 4-layer PCBoard he has designed himself, with added new features, like custom FPGA, faster RAM, HDMI upscaler, flashcarts, sdslots and ton more as you can see from his pictures that he has been sharing to the public finally! :)

The Future is Now! #SNK #SNK40th #NEOGEO #ネオジオ

I can't believe its been four whole decades since the Fury of Gaming world was set on Fire with the original launch of NeoGeo system by SNK, but it seems they are now looking to re-capture the youth of yesterday's Arcade Gaming with possible launch of their own Official NeoGeo Classic Mini, and from the way the cloth is covering the picture above, I think its going to be an Mini Bartop Arcade! :)
