Soulja Boy Is Selling Some Kind of Game Consoles, But People Are Suspicious


28-year-old rapper DeAndre Cortez Way, aka Soulja Boy, has begun selling SouljaGame branded consoles and handhelds, though it turns out, they’re really just off-brand emulators that can be found elsewhere.


However, fans immediately noted that these are not original systems, and can be found elsewhere for much cheaper than what Soulja Boy is offering.


The SouljaGame Console allegedly includes over 800 preinstalled games (though no concrete list is given), AV and HDMI outports, two DualShock-esque controllers, is visually similar to an Xbox One S, and runs on Linux 3.0 OS.


It also claims to output at a 4K resolution, though the included games come from the PlayStation 1, Arcade, Nintendo Entertainment System, GameBoy Advance and more.


Tekken and Tomb Raider key art is used in the site’s promotional materials, though it’s unlikely permission was given to use these IP - IGN has reached out to Bandai Namco and Square Enix for comment.


However, these exact same emulated devices can be found on manufacturer ANBERNIC’s preferred online storefront , both for much less than what SouljaBoy is offering.
