Welcome 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 passed, 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 2004-ish glory at retro.portablesofdoom.org/.
