  • As a guitarist and an 8-bit gamer, the NES guitar was a no-brainer for me to own. But even if you don't play guitar, having this fine instrument hanging on your wall will produce a level of street cred higher than any you could achieve in River City Ransom.

  • This is a pair of Converse shoes with an original Super Mario Bros. pattern on them. Seriously. Link for additional info. That is all.

  • If you thought the GP2X Caanoo was awesome, wait until you get a load of the Open Pandora! Yes, it will cover all of your 8-bit gaming needs, but it's so much more than that. It will even run PC games, in addition to allow you to browse the Web, remotely administer systems, and much more. It is arguably the ultimate in non-mass-produced handheld console systems!
