SifuF’s portable N64: the Nintendo Sixtyfree Lite-R

sifufani9.jpg

Unlike most portable console mods, Ben Heck forumer SifuF’s Nintendo Sixtyfree Lite-R doesn’t look like a dictionary-like slab of plastic and particle board when viewed in profile. In fact, it’s all very svelte, considering the console from which its guts were omphalically plucked… although that likely has a lot to do with the fact that SifuF didn’t opt to include a battery pack, making this portable N64 a little less so.

    am I crazy or is he missing a trigger??
    there’s the L and R bumpers, but where ‘s the z trigger?
    IDK… it’s sexy, but I think the buttons are a little too screwy for me.

    I agree. The N64 had four C buttons instead of the GCN C stick. It’s not the same thing.

    Perhaps one of the shoulder L/R buttons is the Z instead — the shoulder buttons on the N64 controller were never really used. But if not, the thing is a waste. The Z button is an absolute necessity.

    The digital + pad is also kind of unnecessary. That was also pretty much never used in N64 games.

    Why did he use a GCN controller instead of an N64 controller? He never explains this.

    The Gamecube controllers are probably easier and cheaper to find in new condition.

    Yeah, it looks like the larger buttons on the back are R/Z; there’s a smaller L button right below the R button.
