I am Raizer04 and this is my instructable worklog pertaining to my created playstation 2 portable the KNIGHT RAIZER.
So your thinking..."well why not just use psp?"....well my answer to that is the psp has horrible emulation, especially with the ps2 emulator! But thats not all. I needed a way to set myself aside from other modders. What could i do to put this to the next level. REMOVE THE DISC DRIVE. That is right....this portable ps2 relies solely on a thumb drive with the games (ISO) saved on there! This means i can upload any of my backupgames via thumb drive and have no framerate issues since an entire ps2 is all in one case! So we will begin this journey from case-making to finish product.
