  • plandemic

  • If it weren't for that clamp, Linus would have already dropped that.

  • Linus: “I kinda which the screen was better” *Then convert it to VGA like it says in the instructions* 🤦‍♂️

  • This man is a God

  • $300?? Damn... I'll 3d print it all and get a 2nd wii for $20 from a pawn shop!

  • Nah. I will just buy a WiiBoy Color

  • wish they would sell it pre build

  • I'd embarrassed to pull that device out in front of my family, yet here's Anthony making a video for the whole world to see.. what a guy!

  • Bruh

  • O M G

  • Some people might say the vice grip is there to keep the console in frame but I like to believe that its there to prevent Linus from dropping it

  • Is LMG going to cover the cost of replacing all the female (and male) viewers' underwear when Anthony said "physical modding?"

  • Take off those stupid masks!!

  • The tactile feeling of this handheld is irrelevant because you can use parts that you like. So the only reason it may feel foreign or strange is if you use the wrong parts. YOU are building this console. It's a work in progress that you can keep upgrading and changing as you like.

  • Shave you head man it's time

  • You guys are Nuts $325 for a incomplete kit are you out of your mind, anyway I buy 2 retroid pocket 2 with that money , why can anyone just make something different than what we have already seeing ,why copy gameboy shell that is ugly ,why small lcd screen ???? just make something different please.

  • Nintendo can eat shit when it comes to their stance on emulation and backups.

  • Not even Ctgp for Mario Kart. So bad.

  • Idk who andy is but i like his hair and think hes very charming

  • Anthony! My man! Love the vids! Less Linus = better videos 😜 ❤️ You guys

  • I love how they keep using joycon joysticks

  • the easiest way to play wii games on the go is with an ipad pro. However, that shit is expensive af.

  • Awesome content! More modding of Nintendo hardware, please!

  • Anthony: "I built this, and you can too!" Me: WOW! Thank for believe me but i don't believe myself.

  • When is Anthony going to start his own channel and overtake Linus?

  • I see that isolation has taken its toll. Dremel to your Wii.. why!? Use an emulator on your phone instead of ruining that glorious piece of machinery . RIP Toad. Great video though 😊

  • Anthony: Puts a Wii in a Gameboy Linus: 5:47

  • Not that impressive considering the Nintendo Wii is mid-2000s hardware.

  • I can understand not including the Wii itself, just about, but for $325 they can't even include a set of buttons or the batteries?

  • Please cut off those two thin parted hairs!


  • Anthony's hair unsettles me

  • p h y s i c a l m o d d i n g

  • What is that little kit you opened at first like screwdriver bits and what not what's it called

  • Why did he have Mario world on the thumbnail

  • why wasnt the wii built like this originally

  • Is this a joke??? Cause this is very misleading. For those that don't have any idea. This is way desiving & would like a next video saying that this wasn't made by you.

  • anthony im begging you please cutt your hair, dude you balding it would look much cleaner if you cut it

  • I ripped my copies of my disk to an external hard drive. I own the game so how can they tell me how the format is i can use my game? They can't

  • OMG, this does hurt, when I saw, you cut the orginial PCB 🙈 But the idea behind and the outcome, is crazy and amazing!

  • Why don't you just sell it ready ? 😅

  • cutting... that cut would need to be PERFECT. seriously... thats where tons of wii's will be lost.

  • Or you could buy a fucking wii with that money and some games too...

  • Damn, I wish I had the IQ and $ to do this.

  • Good news is that Nintendo's agreement doesn't really factor in when it comes to the legality of this stuff. Ripping and burning copies of physical for personal use is a guaranteed consumer right in many countries, and no EULA can limit that. Americans might have issues since they have laws against bypassing DRM for this kind of use, even if the use itself isn't illegal.

  • I liked this video a lot. Do more like it please.

  • I want a coffee mug that says, "You did not build it, did you?" Ironically on a coffee mug I did not build 🤣😂

  • oh wow ive seen the g-boy many times in videos but ive never seen someone hold it and damn its much smaller than i thought.

  • Are you playing pokemon? Because I see a giant Snorlax playing a gameboy

  • Wii U?

  • Anthony, you're awesome, you don't deserve to do that to yourself with your hair man. There are options, and all of them will make you feel better brother. Also you have a super great speaking voice, lovely to listen to.

  • I'm a Pie boi

  • I love Anthony

  • What a fantastic video, great work. It's really refreshing to see this level of passion.

  • Hey my dude. Great job on the video and the build. Thing looks fun and phenomenal.

  • Segmented d-pads like on ps 1 and 2 are king.

  • Gotta give it to the powe pc chip, hardy little chip.

  • God bless Anthony

  • They really cut that Wii, so the ambulance had to come. Wii U Wii U

  • What is the screen and how is it attached ?

  • But Can It Run Crysis?

  • I see Anthony, i like.

  • 8:03 Its a good thing that by design laws will simply override anything they try.....

  • I'm gonna use that in every argument now. "XboxSeriesX is more powerful than PS5" "yeh but u didn't build it did u"

  • We got one guy moaning constantly and one guy constantly saying "yeah but it has got.."

  • Second day Anthony in a row? Can this week get any better?

  • dude I though it was a joke! Anthony you are a f genius!!!

  • Anthony is the best really. Always on point and so knowledgeable. Whenever he's on camera you can sense he mastered whatever he's talking about. Great host.

  • Incredible work!!!

  • That's cool!

  • Man, I loved this honest review. That's so cool and rare! Thank you so much for this! Also, building something yourself really makes it gain much more value. Especially if it's transforming something that you loved for years into a "better" version!

  • I actually cannot freaking believe they cut up a Wii and it still works. It makes sense but I still can't believe how you can cut up something so complex and have it still working. That thing is just super cool.

  • Gingerof mods make one really better than your.

  • Anthony deserve a retro channel.

  • 4:22 I’m with Linus here, you can dremel its little heart out, patch the software and be running, it’s a thing you can do In theory, but never thought you could do it in practice Next up, the portable Wii consoleizer 😎

  • xD what exactly do you buy from the dude when you have to supply like 95% of the required parts hahaha

  • Is Multiplayer possible?

  • I'd love to see this one get water-cooled

  • Im calling it, we will see retro handhelds playing wii and gamecube flawless next year.

  • Curious if you can use download only games like "Strongbad's cool game for attractive people?"

  • So what I'm hearing about this is that it's legal... but the company just doesn't like it if you do it. I am of course talking about making a g-boy and using ripped games that YOU bought and ripped yourself onto a digital format, don't pirate games, kids

  • Damn, the list of things you need to make this. Is your next do it yourself gonna be a nuclear reactor or a processor? I'll be just as ready to make those.

  • “Impressive... Most impressive...” DV: “Join me on the Darkside...!” LS: “Shut up! You’re not my dad!” DV: “...About that...” *Amazing*!!!

  • I like this kind of content

  • who else would subscribe to anthony tech tips

  • Incredibly disappointed Linus didn't name his TP file "Linkus"

  • I love this man!

  • "But you didn't build it, did you.." PLEASE GIVE ANTHONY HIS OWN HOMEBUILT SHOW

  • I have been watching LTT for a while and met Linus when he was with NCIX.. To be honest I really like Anthony I find him very bright and easy to understand..

  • Damn this looks awesome... I have a Wii collecting dust in my closet... if only I had $325 collecting dust in there too...

  • I had no idea you could cut a board like that 😂

  • Can we have a Anthony Tech Tips already?

  • Type-C video out??

  • Its simple as 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12 13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,24,25,26,27,28,29,30

  • When will this be water cooled?

  • I don't care what Nintendo likes or wants

  • I love Anthony, He's the perfect Geek. Brilliant. Dry humor and just a total badass. Please keep including more of him. He is great. And the stuff finds is so out of what I would even dream of thinking about. I'm not dumping $400 into making one of these myself, but I will watch this again because his DIY hackery makes me think hard about my own.

  • Anthony you're filthy but awesome.

  • An insanely expensive way of having a really bad gaming experience. Having said that, Nintendo really need to open their minds a bit and build a portable retro console with online account purchasable snes, nes, wii, gamcube games!

  • Receding Hairline Club checking in. I need to trade in my card for a Shaved Head Club card before I look like this.
