Soulja Boy Releases His Own Gaming Console & Handheld Gaming Systems Called SouljaGame
The 28-year-old Soulja Boy born DeAndre Cortez Way has set his sights on the games industry. Soulja Boy has launched what he calls the SouljaGame line, including both a console and an emulator.
The SouljaGame console is here and Soulja Boy threw the gaming world for a curve by announcing that he would be releasing a video game console. We now know that it’s called the SouljaGame console and it’s joined by the SouljaGame Handheld.
The SouljaGame Console boasts over 800 built-in games, the majority of which appear to be emulated titles. The box includes the console, a component connector for older televisions, an HDMI cable, and a USB power cable. A pair of controllers similar in style to the DualShock 4 are also included with the package. The SouljaGame console retails for $199.99, but is currently on sale for $149.99.
The portable version, the SouljaGame Handheld has 3,000 games built into the device. The handheld’s design seems relatively simple with four main buttons, start and select buttons, and two shoulder buttons. This package doesn’t explicitly show what it includes, but it likely has at least a USB charging cable in the box. You can also connect the handheld version to a television via component cables, so those may be included in the box as well. The SouljaGame Handheld retails for $149.99, but is on sale for $99.99.
Both the SouljaGame console and SouljaGame handheld are produced by Anbernic, a company that specializes in creating home consoles and handhelds that are loaded up with emulated games. The company is also working on an NES emulator handheld that’s aesthetically similar to a Game Boy.
Soulja Boy says he’s overwhelmed by the response and support.
