Soulja Boy is back. Despite Nintendo's almost immediate nixing of his "new console" which was just an emulator, DeAndre "Soulja Boy" Cortez Way is keeping up his video game dreams. The new and improved SouljaGame Handheld is his latest foray into the console world, and there's no way to put this lightly: it's just a Vita.
Soulja Boy, who is probably best known for his 2007 hit "Crank That (Soulja Boy)," has been making waves in the gaming community as of late because of his strange fixation on selling emulators. Originally, the SouljaGame consoles were based on Nintendo consoles. Despite saying "Nintendo aint gon do SHIT," Nintendo, in fact, did do something and put a stop to the numerous rip-off consoles he made based on their hardware. Soulja Boy now seems to think that Sony is an easier target and is releasing a redesigned SouljaGame Handheld that, visually, is exactly like the PlayStation Vita. The specs he released, however, tell a different story:
Exquisite craftsmanship and fashion design with a reasonable price.

Whatever "watching e-books" means is a mystery, but the rest of the specs seem to imply that the hardware itself is more in-line with the PlayStation Portable, despite it being a blatant Vita rip-off. The new edition of the SouljaGame Handheld joins Soulja Boy's many other rip-off products still available on his website, including SouljaWatches (Apple Watches), SouljaPods (AirPods), and SouljaPads (iPads).
The SouljaGame Handheld is available now for the low price of $99.99. Don't buy it.
