Getting ten free NES games as part of the 3DS Ambassador program is good, but for some inexplicable reason the 3DS doesn't take original NES carts. This baffling oversight may never be corrected, but at least talented modder LovableChevy has created a portable NES to give 8-bit gamers on the go a reason to be cheerful.

The HandyNES is just that: a fully functioning NES that fits in your hands. With a 3.5" LCD screen and cartridge slot it's the real deal, but it's not just confined to your mitts: you can also plug it into a TV to play on the big screen, with support for a second control pad as well.

All in all it's a very impressive bit of kit, though with LovableChevy estimating commissions at $400-$500 perhaps not the most cost effective way to satiate your on-the-go gaming lust.
