retrpodWelcome to the new Portables of Doom. Founded in early 2003, Abbibi vs. the Portables of Doom was set up as a information hub for console portables, featuring various projects, concepts, and guides in a conglomeration of many portable video game systems and the means of constructing them. Acting as a sister site to other portables of the time such as the original Benheck Atari VCSp, Tighe’s NESp, and Kevtris’ Portendo, PortablesofDoom contained valuable information on many areas of portablizing from motherboard sizes and trimming guides, voltages, and various pinouts for many consoles ranging from Atari 2600 to the Nintendo Gamecube.

As the years past, PortablesofDoom was phased out as more content rich forums and portables wiki guides had surfaced. Kept dormant though the years as a time capsule of an era pre-cellphone emulators, tablets, and clone systems, PortablesofDoom has now been relaunched with more news, projects, portables, console mods, creator interviews, and guides from here and around the internet. For those feeling nostalgic, the original PortablesofDoom site can be viewed in all it’s circa-2004 glory at retro.portablesofdoom.org.

Jason acquired PortablesofDoom from the old guard and relaunched the site as a need to send Convention Patrons to collective of projects and mods, rather than wading through forums of both past and present. Jason also handles the social media aspects of the site, running the Youtube and Twitter pages.

Not just adopted into the Portable community, John was born in it, molded by it. He didn’t even see a commercial portable until he was a man. Most portables were created and decommissioned, or proof of concepts in the early days. Along with recent NES2 A/V Mods, John has been a moderator for several years in the days of the Benheck portable community, completed a GP2X upgrade, and has reached Duke Nukem Forever status on the production of the GBOsnes. In addition to contributions here, John has a Youtube Channel featuring past projects, technical oddities, and cars.
