After his first try at breaking into the gaming trade as a console producer was ripped aside, it seems like rapper Soulja Boy is able to crank out attempt quantity two. The primary attempt at making his personal console started in 2019 when he tried to hawk a “new design.” Instantly, he was met with stop and desist notifications from main firms within the enterprise whereas the rapper took potshots at former Nintendo president Reggie Fils-Aime when he stated he “made him retire.” After quite a few jokes and utter silence, it seems like Soulja Boy is able to crank the gaming market as soon as extra.
Whereas the costly knock-off line he first tried to create fell to the wayside following quite a few threats of authorized motion (with one particularly looking almost exactly like the PlayStation Vita), it seems like spherical two is on the point of deploy for the general public to see. In accordance with a Twitter account merely referred to as Soulja Sport Console (related in identify to the unique merchandise he was providing), the rapper is “constructing a brand new console from scratch, all-new design. All-new video games. All-new offers. Let’s make historical past.”

The Twitter account, which each follows and is adopted by Soulja Boy himself for authenticity, does not share any photos of the brand new system, however the related Instagram did and … nicely, it seems like spherical two will not be a lot completely different than spherical one if that PlayStation 2 controller is something to go by:
It was clear that Soulja Boy was by no means planning on leaving the financial alternatives that the gaming trade has to supply given his tweets, his streaming presence, and his launched esports group, however leaping again into the console-making enterprise is actually a alternative. He even requested Tony Hawk if the professional skater would really like to help make a new video game. Given his responses to critique and different firms displaying direct comparisons to already out there merchandise, this launch appears prone to face points just like his try.
In all equity: Go after your objectives. If that is what you wish to do, do not let these ambitions wither into mud. That being stated, let’s make it possible for the “comprised of scratch” console is not comprised of different consoles already out in the marketplace.
Will probably be attention-grabbing to see what “huge plans” the rapper has subsequent. For now, we’ve got a Twitter account, a model new Instagram account, and a dream.
