Reports keep coming in (along with several from readers): the next-generation Wi-Fi remake of the vintage Nintendo game system looks like a complete flop. Too bad: the idea itself, adding on features like wireless control, was appealing. But some of you are probably savvy enough to hack your own 2.4G wireless into the original.

Of course, all you really need is a vintage NES and a copy of Midines. Anyone out there got this setup? Send photos, music, reports, whatever. (I’m sticking to the more-portable Game Boy. Oh, yeah — and my Mac and PC, when I want some “vintage” 16-bit sound.)
