If you're an HTC Evo 4G owner who is looking to take your gaming to next level status then you'll want to be looking at picking up an EVOtainment System. Sure, it looks rather silly considering it's a bunch of Nintendo Wii accessories and a generic Evo GPS dashboard mount all stuck together with some nuts and bolts but judging from the video it'll turn you into a mobile Goomba stomping machine when you couple it with an awesome Nintendo 64 emulator.

Do-It-Yourself kits are currently available for purchase at the source link for only $9.99 while quantities last. Keep in mind however, neither accessories nor device are included. They're just sparing you the time of having to piece it all together with a screwdriver. Check out the video after the break folks. [WFB Gadgets]

EVOtainment System - Only serious gamers need apply

How do you get the Wii remote to connect to the EVO if you are using a Sense ROM? I thought that wasn't possible yet.

You have to have a none sense root rom like cyanogen. Just installed wiimote today haven't had time to hook it Up yet.

N64 emulator is still way too choppy on my evo? Is there a reason why? Does RAM space have something to do with that? I have 50mb left. I have a stock EVO btw.

No such thing. Android, like Linux, will cache programs and unload them when more "free" memory is needed. It is very difficult to really know how much memory *can* be available.

I'm not necessarily the "hardcore gamer" that I used to be, but this would be great on my commute. And i definitely have a life, fulltime job, and fiancee. I could make my 90 minute commute go by much quicker playing emulators on something like this.

tl;dr your "getting a life" comment = invalid

DIY-kit or WTF-kit?

Seriously - while an ingenious mod, and nothing I surely could come up with in my wildest dreams, it's not exactly svelte - is it? Save yourself some some time and heft and get these: http://bit.ly/exMNPW

Oooooooh! Ok,I'm gonna make one now. Except mine will be called the Thundertainment! (guess why)

I'm not familiar w/ the Wii because I don't have one, but does the bottom controller have to go through Wiimote to work? Does Nintendo not make a Bluetooth variant of the bottom controller?

And don't PS3 controllers work over Bluetooth? Has no one made an app that will allow any other Bluetooth controller to work with these emulators? This setup using a Wiimote, steering wheel, & another controller seems like a giant fustercluck instead of using a different controller that is more functional than Nintendo's controllers.

1) Yes it does. Although I don't know why they can't just use the WiiRemote to control the thing instead of the classic controller.

2) No

3) I believe so, yes.

4) Don't know

Wow... Ridiculous... If I saw a grown man, in public, playing this, I would litteraly laugh at him... now I can understand a child, but I don't think a child can root and do this to his phone. Hopefully, his mom or dad can do it for him.

never said that... if you read it, it says "grown man... in public" = overkill... i have nothing against video games. and to be honest, I wouldn't let a child play some of the video games on the market. IMO, and I reiterate, IMO!!!

wow.. when does serious gamer and wii ever have anything to do with each other? "yo guyz check out meh leet phone" ROFLMAO
