Soulja Boy turns his swag off with yet another knockoff console

We’re running out of Soulja Boy jokes.

It appears that Soulja Boy isn’t content with just being sued by Nintendo (allegedly). Now, he’s teeing up for a showdown with Sony, with a PS-Vita-like handheld that’s sure to break within minutes of opening the box.

I mean, just look at it. If that isn’t the spitting image of the almost-dead Vita, then I’ll eat an overpriced memory stick. The “MP5 Player” has a screen that comes to a resolution of 480 x 272, far short of the “HD” it’s advertised as.

If that bit of spurned truth-in-advertising didn’t put you off, how about the fact it has a camera. I don’t like devices I trust having camera access, so who knows what this one does. Maybe you just paid $100 for an always-on bug in your house.

More about this handheld “console”

Soulja, whose real name is DeAndre Cortez Way, might have learned something from his recent pirated ROM issues. If this new “SouljaGame Handheld” comes with any preinstalled games, there’s no mention of that anywhere on the listing.

That won’t stop the legal issue from the obviously copied PS Vita design though, so maybe he needs some new advisors again. I’ll gladly step up to the plate for a retainer, then again I’m no lawyer and Soulja Boy obviously needs one of those.

Just avoid this, seriously

The “SouljaGame Handheld” is just another crappy, badly rebranded Chinese knockoff of the sort that’s given Chinese manufacturing a bad name for decades. Seriously, just stop it. The same device looks to be selling for $33 on AliExpress, so Soulja is probably making bank off drop-shipping the dodgy handhelds.

At least it can play music through its stereo speakers, so you can blaze “Crank Dat” for the millionth time. It’s currently “sold out” in all three colors, so I guess Soulja’s fans really like supporting his bad habits.
