Called the “PS2 Eclipse”, this portable version of the PS2 includes a pared-back PS2 motherboard and some personalized printed circuit boards for the occasion. So you can play your favorite PS2 games anywhere you want.
The set fits in a 3D printed frame and is equipped witha 5 inch 480p screen as well as Parts from other consoles like the PlayStation Vita, from which the Eclipse takes over the but tons, and the switch for the joysticks.
The PS2 Eclipse has other coquettes Loudspeaker, headphone jack and battery level indicator, their maximum duration around half past one.
Definitely neat, This wearable model is far from perfect as the shoe pinches in certain places. Although the PS2 Eclipse uses the original PS2 hardware rather than the emulation that allows you to play 4000+ games, The latter slowly loads games from a USB stick.
The same applies to the loading times. Besides, the model sometimes has problems recognizing the controller and some games even won’t load. However, GingerOfOz does not give up and hopes to be able to solve this problem sooner or later using software.
