Buy the 2012 Nintendo Wii U and Keep Your Old Consoles Too

 - Nov 19, 2012
With the 2012 Nintendo Wii U release comes the need to get rid of other infamous Nintendo consoles in order to clear a space for your new gaming device. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean you have to throw out your old consoles.

If you've been an avid Nintendo devotee since the the first NES device, you've probably become very attached to your gaming equipment. Instead of tossing those old SNES or N64 systems into the trash, turn them into a toaster for your breakfast meal. Keep your directional button controllers around by making them into belt buckles or a charger for your phone. Even your Zelda or Mario Brothers gaming cartridges can become handy data storing devices.

This collection of upcycled Nintendo hardware will inspire you to turn your old console into something functionally memorializing. Even though you may of moved onto the 2012 Nintendo Wii U console, you won't disregard the others.
