Video inside Project Unity - the multiple retro video gaming console system - YouTube

After three years and over 3,500 man-hours, modder extraordinaire Bacteria has finally completed "Project Unity," a "Swiss army knife of retro gaming pleasure" that jams 15 classic game consoles into one box. It's kind of like Ben Heck's "Ultimate Combo System," but beastlier.

Valued at about $1,075, Bacteria says Project Unity contains "one master controller," which is just, wow. It also has "one SCART output, one power supply, one custom made switch unit" — another equally impressive engineering feat.

And while there are 15 consoles stuffed inside this wooden chassis, it can actually play games from 18 systems, because the Gamecube can play emulated GameBoy Advance games, the PS2 can play PS1 games and the Atari 7800 can play Atari 2600 games.

Project Unity contains the following game consoles:

Armstrad GX1000
Atari 7800
Colecovision
Intellivision
NEC TurboGrafx X
NeoGeo MVS
Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)
Nintendo Gamecube
Nintendo 64
Sega Dreamcast
Sega MegaDrive (Genesis)
Sega Master System
Sega Saturn
Sony PlayStation 2
Super Nintendo (SNES)

Bacteria's uploaded a lengthy video detailing how he made it. If you have time this weekend, it's worth a watch. And no, Bacteria's not selling it.

#### the saturn and all that other ####.

These are the systems I want!

But by the look of things, this #### don't look too grounded. You #### with this and you can mess up power for the whole projects .

I live in a house and still wouldn't mess with this. All of these systems must take up some type of power. i have a feeling you either can cause a big black out with this or an electric fire. Plus that controller look n@sty

I respect dudes skills though

Thought it would of been newer consoles which would of been cool, considering all the emulators around these days that can be played with 1 joypad that seems like a waste of time. Maybe in future he can sell it and make it worthwhile. If he was on Dragons den he would be one of the people who built something for a problem that does not exist

If he makes one with current and next gen consoles i will be a believer

Til then Rom collection browser on xbmc>>>his setup
