The SouljaBoy Mini

Believe it or not, we would never have expected to be writing an article about Soulja Boy releasing games consoles in 2018 here at Nintendo Life. Somehow, though, we're here doing just that for the second time in as many weeks.

Yes, you may remember that just a handful of days ago, we shared the news that rapper Soulja Boy - or DeAndre Cortez Way - has been selling rebranded Chinese games consoles that come with a bunch of emulators running (presumably) unlicenced ROMs. If that, and the fact that people are actually buying the things wasn't crazy enough, he's now set his sights on even more gaming releases, including one that looks particularly familiar.

Meet the Retro SouljaBoy Mini, a $100 gaming device which comes with an 8GB SD card as standard. This SD card is home to 508 preloaded games, all of which are playable on the device's two-inch screen. We don't know about you, but we can't help thinking that the design looks fairly similar to Nintendo's very own Game Boy console. Oh, hang on a minute, he's actually using a picture of Mario to sell the thing so yes, it's probably definitely ripping off the Game Boy.

On top of this, Soulja Boy is also launching the SouljaGame Fuze - a rebranding of the console which attempted to simultaneously copy the designs of both PlayStation and Xbox a couple of years ago. It's quite hard to tell what you get with this one - Soulja Boy's advertising states that "The introduction of paragraph 76 games, starting 20 games shock", whatever that means - but we're sure it's all good fun.

What we can tell you is that it costs a frankly amazing $639.98. Don't worry, though, Soulja Boy currently has it on sale for just $400.
