Earlier this week hackers got a build of Linux running on the PlayStation 4. Now GBATemp user Shutterbug2000 demonstrates Windows 95 running on a new 3DS. I can’t wait to run BeOS on my Xbox One.
If Mortal Kombat went back in time and made sweet love to Pitfall, the result would look something like this.

And you thought the Virtual Boy was only good for tennis and tired failed hardware jokes.
Portal on the DS: Aperture Science, the homebrewed version of Portal for the DS shown off back in February, now has a "mostly playable" version. You'll need a flash cart to play it, but the file can be found here.
The DS still is home to a robust homebrew scene, as we see here in this Portal port that modder Smealum has been working on for about the past six months.

The fact you can't buy Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep on the PSPgo highlights one of the bigger problems with Sony's struggling handheld. It also helps explain why piracy is so rampant on the portable device.
Your parents die. But your fate changes when a millionaire adopts you, and you move into her mansion with her and her daughters. Then...yeah.
Microsoft's support for the Zune HD as a game playing device has been pretty abysmal. Luckily there are hackers, one of which has the beginnings of a serviceable Game Boy Advance emulator working on the device.
